    ah man, this gave me the image of a strange looking man pouring Patak's cooking sauce over himself in the bath. I don't need that.

    With low blows like that, you're gonna have a very negative record!

    Any moves towards regulation sound great, so this has got to be a positive thing.

    Just out of interest though, have there ever been any known cases of any fighters contracting HIV or any blood borne diseases as a result of an MMA fight?

    Also, people drawing comparisons between Boxing and MMA, don't really work. I think the pro medicals/license for boxing is around the 700 mark, but this includes all brain scans etc as well as bloods. However, A friend of mine recently earned 2700 for his 3rd pro boxing fight, another mate got just under 1000 for his pro debut. I got 350 for my 3rd pro mma fight!

    Bear in mind that this is a step forward for the legitimacy of the sport - which means a step towards more mainstream acceptance, with the potential of reaching a wider audience and attracting more sponsorship. In the long run, that's a good thing for fighters financially.

    At the moment, there are still plenty of companies that won't touch MMA in this country because of its image problem. This is a move in the right direction

    This is true, and on the surface of this the scheme seems excellent, lets face it, anything which helps improve safety is without doubt, on the surface at least, a positive step forward
