yeah, but when randy quit he was still under contract to fight in the ufc

what im talking about is even after the contract is up (no more fights for the UFC) still having to wait a fixed time before being able to compete at another organization

i think the one i had to sign was called a non-competitive agreement/claus thing

That kinda depends on which contract you are talkikng about.. that's what Randy's point was..

Sounds like Dana and the UFC ain't gonna be happy 'til they OWN these fighters' souls (and are charging them for the "honor"!

Ugh...I know that each fighter/person has a choice whether or not to sign the contract, but this is a bit much. Fans are interested in the fighters more than they are the three letters/logo in the cage, and if the UFC doesn't figure that out before somebody with a good financial plan for another org does, they're setting themselves up for some problems

hmm,
This is another example of controlling a persons life..There definitely needs to be another organization to compete with UFC with a more fighter friendly system. I'm not saying fighters should be paid exorbants amounts of money,but they shouldn't have to sign their life away to the devil.
I understand to a degree while under contract,but after contract is fulfilled or nullified by company they should be hands off a fighters financial/personal lifes...
