I always hear talk about what is “for the good of the fighter” or “for the safety of the fighter.” But I often find myself asking, “When was the last time we saw a change in MMA that really and truly benefited the fighters?” Maybe my memory is shot. But nothing seems to pop up! Let’s take a look. Weight measuring system? Lots of talk, lots of indignation, but we are still putting these athletes through a simply asinine process of extreme dehydration and then an extreme athletic competition in the form of a fight 24 hours later. We talk about it over and over, but then we just keep on at it. This has to be one of the most idiotic processes in sports history
