Like I said, go start an MMA org and try and host a fight without going through the government. Let me know how that works out for ya.
I guess having the guy who runs the largest MMA org in the world, Dana White, say the sport is controlled by the government isn't credible enough.
Like it or not, they make the rules, and they can ultimately ruin this sport or help make it flourish.
