I agree completely, as this can not be good for the fighters. There will be virtually no leverage in bargaining for fighters, can anyone say "Meat Grinder". The same will be said that if a fighter does not agree with the UFC, they pretty much hold all the cards....either play their game or they will destroy your career.
