Its weird. We lived there for something like six years and I remember vividly how cold people are towards the youth there. I was a kid at the time but I remember that pretty clearly. Its a culture based on excellence and strictness that is very unforgiving. I remember hearing about that last school shooting there. About how the kid that killed all those people had been expelled some weeks prior because he forged a doctors note because he missed a day of school. I think thats a classic example of their stupid policies blowing up their face(s).

After pressure from a local child protection commission, the UFC has been forced to ban minors from attending UFC 99 in Germany.

The announcement of the ban was recently publicized in a rep
ort by Dave Meltzer at Yahoo! Sports.

Initially the call to action was to ban the event completely. One of Germanyís largest newspapers published a front page article that set off a chain reaction of negative publicity. Conclusively, the UFC has been forced to ban anyone under the age of eighteen from attending the event live.


Much of the negative publicity stems from incorrect information that the UFC bans only biting and eye-poking.
Those educated and informed about the sport know that the UFC adopted the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts back in 2000. The rules ban many potentially dangerous moves possible in an MMA bout.


There is a distinct possibility that there has been a lapse in communication amongst sanctioning and administrative bodies in Germany. Did Germany officials involved with the event not do their part in educating the community? UFC President Dana White has made multiple trips to Germany in preparation for the event, so it would be hard pressed to think that the UFC didnít do their part in the public relations sector.


UFC 99 takes place on June 13 in Cologne, Germany. It will feature a main event catchweight bout (195 lbs) between Wanderlei Silva and Rich Franklin. The event will be held at the Lanxess Arena and marks another UFC milestone as the first event in Germany.
If its on false information, they'll probably change it so next time Minors are allowed.

Be greatful that in Europe Minor means under 18...and not like it does in America...Under 21

Try and understand, they are petrified of inspiring anything slightly violent in their Youth. Its an over-reaction AGANST what you state above that has created this. You are VERY lucky that Germany even allows MMA, VERY lucky indeed...it wouldnt have been my choice of a European Destination, perhaps the worst place to hold anything like that period.

Here is a country that doesnt do patriotism lest its wrongly interpreted as Fascism, here is a country who has banned the majority of its national anthem for shame, and lest you forget, there ARE neo-Nazi groups in Europe who would, and probably will, try to gain access into such a venture.

They say once bitten, twice as shy...well...thats Germany taken to the extreme. I am amazed they would host something like this, absolutely amazed, show a little understanding in that something this large is pretty much revolutionary for them...is it being held in Berlin aswell

oh...cologne LOL
