Just thinking, I don't ever remember reading anything about the UFC being displeased by the Diaz Bros in-fight middle fingers or Chael's references to brazilian kids playing in the mud.

Its not the UFC. Did you miss Fox cutting to a screen shot of the Octagon anytime Nate flipped off Bendo in their fight? As independent contractors (UFC fighters) I wonder if this is really enforceable or a load of crap.

I hope while the UFC are introducing new codes of conduct etc they can stop giving out Harley Davisons every other week. You'd have thought that the amount of injuries over the last year that not being allowed to ride motorcycles would be in a UFC fighters contract.

The contracts have a clause against any dangerous activity. Link to an article about Cerrone rocking climbing and DW not liking it.

Be interesting to see if they actually make of detailed list of do's and don'ts, as well as defined penalties for same.

If they come out with some hogwash like, "Fighters will exemplify what is best in MMA" or whatever, then they needn't bother.

My bet is it'll be pretty watered down, and intentionally vague/open to interpretation.

"high standards"

I imagine the UFC has the Diaz bros writing the regulations then.

Matt Hughes is the "code of conduct" guy? That seems a little odd.

It's a good idea but why Hughes? Dude acted like a teenage bully on his tuf season with georges, accidentally wore a white supremacist t-shirt, and told fans that criticized his hunting to ef off.

So is there a list of this code of conduct? What does it entail exactly?
