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
