Not touchy, Alizio, but sensitive to bigotry and hatred and generalization. And now you are calling me a religious "nut". Hey, I'll take that if you put me in the same class as Fedor. Btw, I do know my religious history after being in ministry for 17 years.
How dare Fedor NOT compromise his beliefs! How can he be so unselfish!
Why not stay on topic and don't spew hate (and ignorance). And using the Sopranos as an example to make your point is truly a sign of brilliance.

well since your the minister ill save the spewing hate and ignorance to you
thx 4 insulting my intelligence Father, it has furthered your point greatly
his beliefs?? he doesnt make the decisions business wise, his mafia buddies do. I guess it's ok to compromise and do business with alledgedly shady ppl, huh?? just like the church didnt care where it got it's $ either... a means to an end, indeed.
Because boxing is going so well now isnt it?? Lets have a million champions that wont fight each other for w/e reason instead of just a few.... lets have corrupt practices, unfair fighter treatment, poor marketing for anything other then the Main event and cards not stacked. Yes, plz, let's end up like them.... i actually have been boxing for many years and believe me, that system is more corrupt and horrible then anything in MMA. Hard to get big fights together you would be surprised. Alot of titles, alot of BS.
I rather have the UFC as the major force in MMA and everything else as feeder to the UFC but the UFC needs to find a way to support the feeder organizations be it with talent, $ or promotion. You could have regional organizations to national ones to international ones all feeding up (and down) to each other and at the top is the UFC. This way we get the fights we want at the highest level with the fighters the PAYING FAN (yes, im not including you freebie ppl, if you dont pay, you have NO say) want to see.
Fedor is the last major holdout. If he ever signs or retires that will be the end of any great fighter holding out, especially if the system is created that makes it the equivilent to any major sport in North America.
The world acts like they wont like this.... yet when they want the best basketball tune into the NBA or the best baseball tune into MLB... that's where the best players want to go. They still have their own basketball or hockey leagues all over the world, it doesnt mean the sport will die whereever you are from, just the UFC who has done it the best and most profitable will become WORLDWIDE and do shows in europe and asia all the time aswell, perhaps shows on either side of the planet once a month.
Boxing is so broken you cant fix it, there's a reason for that, a billion promoters, hundreds of belts, more corrupt ppl getting invovled, crooked ppl. Let's not make the same mistake.
Feel free to tell me why this type of system isnt more ideal beyond any irrational national pride?? We as fans would get the best fighters, fights, promotion, production quality. Why is that is bad to some ppl?? It doesnt mean there wont be other organizations but they will need to accept being feeders to the UFC, most of them already do tbh.
