Well, UFC is, effectively as a result. And I swear I remember reading there were a bunch of other rules discrepancies that create problems? groundfighting and stoppage stuff?

That sounds more like they just allow kickboxing in France rather than MMA. If the cage isn't allowed in France then MMA is rather restricted. And are stoppages really not allowed either?

UFC has a rapidly growing global presence, Muay Thai doesn't to the UFC's extent. If MMA comes into Thailand and gets more popularity...it won't hurt Muay Thai, but they risk losing a certain % of the fanbase maybe to MMA.

Just a thought.

Could be the amount of Muay Thai fighters crossing over to MMA too.

No surprise here. Even Germany (the boxing community) is trying to get MMA banned. It's all about the money.

There are just too many countries that don't want MMA around. Either it is very foreign to them or it threatens an existing industry. When that happens obviously they want to get rid of it.

Damn I just posted an article on their first official MMA fight weeks ago too...

Politics...go figure...

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
