From R3D on TT, no wonder why internationally famous fighters like Fedor and Overeem refuse to fight in the UFC. The likeness clause extends to unbelievable heights if Zuffa can censor a fighter's name.



So I turn on my EA MMA today to get some good old fashion K-1 rules with MMA gloves fights going, and I notice when I chose Mirko, his name came up as Mirko *******

I was like WTF, then the game starts and the announcers no longer say his name, instead of a name its just *******.

I then checked the whole roster and apparently UFC owns the every name and surname of EVERY FIGHTER SIGNED TO THEM. They own the name JUNIOR so it says ******* Dos Santos etc.

****ign ZUFFA ***g0ts couldnt make a better product, so they resorted to these cut throat tactics like the spineless cowards that they are.



Even BloodStain Lane (BSL) has had his Vlogs pulled by Zuffa due to copyright infringements, apparently you can no longer say a UFC fighter's name without the strict permission from Zuffa. The worst thing is that BSL in no way or form profit from his Vlogs.

BSL told me on twitter he put up his vlog on YT and Zuffa got it deleted due to copyright.

Even worse ZUFFA forces EA to remove fighting stance, Zuffa now owns the rights to names of fighting stance names? WTF, how can people support this?

zuffa forces EA MMA to remove customized fighting stances...hahahaha

Basic Iowa wrestler

Generic Pit Fighter

Generic Heavyweight Champion

Hawaiian Prodigy Fighter

Basic Street Fighter

Total: 5 fighter stances removed. Maybe more?

The Zuffa contracts are borderline illegal. Someone did some research on it a while ago.

The only guys who still own their own names are Randy, Tito, and Cain.

and get this: Uncle Fester wanted to cut him for refusing to give up his rights. Eventually Zuffa caved on the contract

I don't see how they can claim "generic heavyweight champion," "basic Iowa wrestler" and "basic streetfighter."

"Hawaiian prodigy fighter" sort of makes sense because it's Penn's nickname and he's from Hawaii (not that I don't think it's bull**** all the same), and "generic pitfighter" is a little more bull****, but I guess it was sort of novel when Abbott claimed to be a pit fighter.

Who is "basic Iowa wreslter" ripping? Matt Hughes? Last I checked, he's from Illinois. And Iowa is the damn mecca of wrestling in the US. Pat Militech maybe? Last I knew, he isn't a current UFC fighter, and is in fact working for Strikeforce.

Bewildering.

what a disgrace. how the hell does ufc get away with this?

people compare ufc to wwe and vince mcmahon, but not quite the same.

wwe owns the rights for made up ring names and stage names, but wwe never claims the rights of real names of their wrestlers.

i'd be pissed if i was a fighter and zuffa owned the name Willy Wanker. i mean my mom named me that.

and owning fighting stances? bwahahahahahahahah!!!!

I just kind of instinctively thought Pat Militech, but your right the guy hasn't fought since 2008. That was for the Adrenaline MMA promotion. He hasn't fought for the UFC since 2002. He's worked for Strikeforce since 2009 as a commentator. pretty crazy stuff

It's gay. I'm pretty much done with this game. EA should have stepped up and given us more as customers. The worst part is that in ufc 2010 there are names of strikeforce fighters that players can create. Time for strikeforce to step up and do the same thing that ufc has just dojne. That **** isn't censored. They also took away stances in ea sports mma that slightly resembled anyojne in the ufc. They were forced to removes stances such as "generic hawaiian prodigy" "Elusive striker" "pit fighter" how the hell does ufc think they own these stances.

The worst thing thing is that any name that is the same with a ufc fighter is censored. My fighter's name was Kid Africa due to my african heritage. A couple of days ago, I loggrf on to fight with him and saw that his first name was blanked out. I started to think and remembered that there is a fighter named kid yamomoto in the ufc. My name in the game got censored because of some fighter I've never even see fight.

Strikeforce fighters aren't private property. This incidentally is why they have been able to assemble the best HWs in the sport (the glamor division) in recent times, because their contracts aren't slave contracts. That's unquestionably why they have Fedor, Overeem, and moneyweight King Mo. It could be why they have Werdum and Arlovski as well (who each fell out with the UFC). Probably other fighters as well.
