Having worked under these regulations, I believe it is an excellent system and believe implementing it in the UK would be a good thing for UK MMA.

    In order for the commission to be efficient it needs to be ruled as a completely independent organisation. Everybody involved should not have any interest in any MMA organisations (such as promoters, managers, trainers, media, ...). I was a commissioner then I chose to manage a fighter therefore I had to stop being a commissioner because of the obvious conflict of interest. The commission needs to sanction promoters and fighters based on their respectability and not based on their relationship with the fighters or promoters. And again the commission may have to reprimand certain fighters and promoters and should feel free of doing it if needed.

    It'd be more than happy to share my experience with you guys and based on what I said above, I would not be an active member of the commission. I would just like to help getting it up and running. I believe the regulations will bring safety, respectability and professionalism to our sport. I can also ask people at the NSAC to give us some tips (something that I have discussed many times with them before).
    thankyou for getting onboard, your experience will be of great benefit to us, I think that it is pretty much agreed uopn that the BMMAC will be a non profit organisation with a commitee that consists of experienced MMA representatives that hold no outside interest. Im gonna put up a thread for candidates, even though were at an early stage I think considerating these things now while were waiting for other developments will save us alot of time in the long run.

    In essence what you want is what the US has which is a state athletic commission.

    I am on the fence with this as I can see the pros and cons.
    For some it would be hard to be told what you can or can't do.
    A lot of promotors won't pay a commision.
    For so many different rules and promotions this whole thing would be very hard to police.
    Who would decide who sits on the panel? You can't just select yourself as this would upset a lot of people.
    A lot of fighters wouldn't pay for a licence.

    A governing body is great but at this time I just can't see it working. There would be far too many rogue break away promotions.

    but the us commissions are profit making organizations, are they not?
    couldn't we create something more like an advisory council, no need for fighters/promoters to pay for licenses etc., just a commission of volunteers, who's sole purpose is to regulate, officiate, advise and generally try to push the sport forward and make it more and more professional.
    get the officials to draw up guide lines together, with the support of fighters and promoters wherever possible, and try to have at least one official at each show, to see that guidelines are followed where possible, and also be there in an advisory capacity.
