Default Banning fighters without credentials?

I have been watching a few HDNet fights and have seen fighters who seemed to have no skills. They may have won a few fights but from what they display they only know how to brawl. Most of the fights seem brutal because neither guy knows how to defend. I know that there are many other small organizations that employ amateur fighters, but I think that if a fighter has no credentials (belts, olympic status, college experience, etc) he should not be allowed to fight. Obviously, a person with skills and was interested in fighting would have had to learn somewhere and have had some experience in legitimate competitions. If MMA is to establish itself as a sport it must have some required credentials for entry, otherwise I foresee someone being seriously injured. What do you guys think?

LMAO at the vids man that was some funny stuff. Now on topic these fighters must have camps that only see dollar signs, thats the key is finding a good camp where if your coaches dont feel that your ready they wont let you fight. I some what agree with monkey i feel that amature fighters should at least so evidence they they have been training with a credited school.But at the same time if the idiots are out classes and are too stupid to realize it who are we to stop them from getting a grade A ass whoopen.
