F4GG0T ASS ZUFFA CENSORS ALL EA MMA CAF's WITH UFC FIGHTER NAMES.
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.

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 bullshit all the same), and "generic pitfighter" is a little more bullshit, 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.

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!!!!
