I agree that theres some bullshit that goes on in the UFC, but there's WAY more bullshit in boxing. The last thing MMA should do is be more like boxing.

Not as simple as that. MMA fighters need to be able to seek their own sponsorship to provide for them during their careers since UFC doesn't pay them fuck all before they are an actual draw. MMA fighters should also be able to fight under any goddamn organization they want for a unified independent ranking.

Especially since they are considered "independant contractors" but they still sign their likeness/souls over to Dana so he can make dolls out of them and they still don't get a penny, wtf? It just goes to show that the UFC must still pay the most to the fighters in the long run because the same fighters that keep bitching keep signing new contracts. Nick and Nate barely fight and still making money under the UFC, Nick could have gone to any other org but they stay with the Devil they know.

All of this just makes me wonder what did offer they Couture to fight Fedor. Must have been a seven figure payday. All of his points are correct. However to go through with the lawsuit is in my mind more of a way to get back at the UFC.
