Well if Sky News and other major news networks broadcast in The U.K are crappier papers then so be it.
the coverage this story had over here in the UK was widespread with 3hr long debates on a large sport based Radio station named Talksport with over 2.5million listeners daily.
It seemed Rupert Murdoch and his chums had it in for UFC, but failed to mentioned their boss is making money from UFC as in order to watch UFC you need to subscribe to a Tv channel called Bravo, and to get this channel you need a tv package called Sky Entertainment... now who owns Sky?
The main email address of The BMA thats dealing with this issue on Boxing (mainly) and MMA is email@example.com
This is the parliamentary unit.
Please help with me and get the message across to these guys with facts and figures, not aggressive and uneducational emails like: your mothers a whore!
More informative emails aiming to highlight the benefits and far less injury rate than any of the other major sports in The UK including my beloved Soccer, Formula1 car racing, MotoGP, Rugby... more injury rates in these sports.
Infact within the past several weeks three football players have died, well Soccer players as you guys would say... due to over exhaustion and heart failure.
