Just another sport that got ruined by the money. It happened to every sport before it, and now it's happening to the UFC.

Watch an NFL football game and see what happens when the money gets in the way of the game.

Now UFC fighters will be limited to the strict moral code exhibited by Matt Hughes.

Man, if they actually push this, they're gonna destroy the UFC just like what happened to the NBA the past 10 years. They're gonna push for a more TV-friendly show with press con trash talkers getting fined huge bucks. Seriously, f*ck this. And f*ck Matt Hughes.

lmao, yeah right. Trash talk = money and Dana White loves money. You think he's gonna fine someone for building interest in his product? Get out.

Hughes' job is probably just like Chuck's, a reason for the UFC to keep paying the guys that helped them back when it was UFC/Pride.

The trash talk was a random example, learn to chill. All I'm saying is we're seeing Fox's influence grow more on the league. You won't be seeing a lot of those Tito-Shamrock episodes in the future if they keep pursuing this direction.

Apparently Matt's first job is to build moral after telling the fighters they can't act like pricks anymore.

So he's booked a week's hunting trip to Africa for the entire roster.

Last person to shoot an elephant gets bullied for the rest of the week.

It's not like that many people get hurt outside of training and fighting. I don't see this doing much other than pissing off some of the fighters.

Anyone that criticizes hunting should be told to **** off, not just fight fans.

It really depends on the purpose of the hunt. Ivory poachers are hunters too you know.
