When Struve fought Stojnic and got super bloody (and still won what a warrior) in Cologne, did that have something to do with it?

There's no doubt about the danger and risk involved in MMA; having said that, I've always pointed out that MMA fighters are at much lower risk for damage than are boxers.

Despite appearances, MMA is much safer than other combat sports such as boxing and the NFL.

I think MMA will be back on German television sooner rather than later, as people are educated about mixed martial arts competition.

Boxing = 12 rounds of consensual brain damage. It is a great irony how boxing gloves, cutting less but involved in causing more brain damage, makes it a more acceptable sport. Complete hypocrisy.

I really think that the move to ban the UFC is definitely due to Germany becoming the HW boxing mecca of the world.

I really don't know, but I heard it faced a lot of harsh critics afterwards. This fight was probably a main reason for that. It just scares people.

I don't think they have to fear MMA already! I don't know the TV Quotas, but I am sure they were pretty low. It was viewed at the most awful time on weekdays. Not viewable for ppl who have a daily job, unless you record it or something..

It has nothing to do with boxing. There is an old law that gives bayern( a state of germany) the power to forbid a tv show. They used this law to forbid ufc and their reason is the violation in mma, for example it is allowed to punch people who are on the floor.

expect this from switzerland or costa rica or something, a country with longterm anti war, anti violence leanings or something... this is just weird.
