Our chief of state is a woman and what happened in our country in the first half of the century is now abolished by the law. Stop it right there, ok? Usually I'm not that touchy, but that's just one thing I absolutely hate.

It still sucks. I never really watched UFC on television since the commentary sucks and the internet is much better, but that really sucks. And actually... I don't get it. There's lots of K-1 on TV (though not on DSF) and Muay Thai competitions.

I bet Boxing is a big part of this decision some how, i just know it. Germany is pretty big on boxing right now and i bet they dont want MMA coming in and spoiling the show for them.

Actually it's just the Klitschkos. We don't care for boxing unless it's some Klitschko jabbing the shit out of some unknown opponent for 12 rounds.

as a half Jew i hate Germans who think it should never be brought up....

we tried that clean slate shit after WW1.....


NEVER FORGET!!! ( i know, so unfair cuz u had nothing to do with it. only your forefathers.... if u wanna trade spots and let half of ur immediate family get tortured, murdered, raped and disrespected i will gladly trade spots and see if you easily forget it)

as far as the country, the Germans ive met are very cool. this law has likely more to do with some $ interests then MMA.

the power is with the ppl as always. if the ppl dont like something THEY CAN CHANGE IT THEMSELVES. get my point??

I think you're onto something. The Germans are filling 50000 seater stadiums in the big boxing fights they host. Hosting a couple of MMA events a year wont do boxing any favours. In my opinion of course. I'm not german, so its not worth much.

Thats true! Rogan and Goldie are non exchangeable. But still it was nice to watch the event at midnight in great quality, just for a rewatch.

Boxing is on a different channel at primetime mostly. I doupt many ppl actually watched the UFC on DSF, because of the Porn commericals every 15min.. 10 min long.

Seems to me like a cultural thing. Citing the 'taboo' of hitting a grounded opponent. Its still ******* retarded.

My heart goes out to all the German MMA homies out there.

Why does Germany need the UFC when they have this to look forward to for years to come:
