Right now the UFC is the top dog, like the NFL, NBA, or MLB. However, unlike those leagues where there are unions and a countless number of checks and balances, the UFC is private and it's clear that a lot of fighters have been less than thrilled about working with them.
Yeah, I'd imagine things will change at some point, but when I don't really know. Didn't Matt and some of the other fighters have to fight with Dana to use their own walk-in music? I remember reading something like that a year ago or so on this forum.

I don't remember that, but I can imagine there is some red-tape with using certain music.

Oh man...I can't imagine more red tape involved than Cro Cop using "Wild Boys" as his entrance music. Lol. (yes, I realize he's used it for years, and that people across the pond somehow view it as...somehow less geh than here)
