5 MMA Things That Need to Go Away Right Now

Let me kick this slideshow off with a bit of breaking news: Nobody's perfect.

MMA is not a "body." I get it, stickler. But it's also not perfect, thereby rendering that phrase still relevant.

The main thrust is that most people, organizations, agencies and entities of all kinds learn at some point in their maturation stage is that you must embrace these flaws. Turn into the skid, as it were. Only in doing so will salvation appear, and true betterment occur.

Well, MMA hasn't learned that. Does that suggest it is immature? Yes. But plenty of companies and individuals keep committing the same errors, which, in some quarters, is the very definition of insanity.

You could argue, however, that people and groups who are made explicitly aware of these mistakes but continue making them (sometimes even more fervently out of spite or stubbornness) are even crazier. You could argue that.

In any case, here are five things MMA doesn't get right. Not just the UFC, not just the fighters, not just the fans, but the entire community. And these five things need to stop. Please.
