UFO - ultimate fighting okanagan
Found this link on a thread at sherdog:
Some of the people there are actually being supportive of them and I thought that people here may see the problem and take action.
Here's the thread from sherdog
Here are forums
These kids don't see the harm that they could do to the sport. Go forth and do your thing.
3/19/2006 8:18pm, #2Don't forget this is rookie MMA ppl just starting out,and guys training them selfs to see if they like it before making the big step into professional training.
we feel that if we can get as good as we can self trained we will build a lot of heart and have a good understanding for fighting before we jump into professional training and this can benefit us for having both ends of the stick shall we say.
So please do not criticize and be respectful to the fighters.
derek has now abandon us,he no longer speaks to any of his friends and wont come out of his house. he is in terrible shape and all he does is drink pop and eat chocolate bars. he refuses to fight and he is the reason the web page is no more.You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

it seems there's no grappling allowed in the UFO. They won't be doing any harm to MMA, just boxing and kickboxing.
I don't see anything wrong with what they are doing. The refs seemed to be alert and it looks like they are watching out for each other's safety.

From post #32 on the sherdog thread:
"so thanks agian for those who support us and give us credit for trying to build somthing.
were doing this safely and trying to erase the hole you cant do it unless ur trianed stereotype
were teaching our selfs until we reach our own personall best then we are going to get trained
ground game will be in around mid summer hopefully.
thanks again,any forum sign ups would kick ass."
They're adding grappling once they have mats. The "Stereotype" that you can't do it unless you're trained isn't a stereotype, it's the truth.
I thought I'd be able to post the link to get the gears cranking, I didn't think I would need to push.
They want forum signups

As the Okanagan representative on BS, I feel the need to make some comment.....
All I can say is I don't know these guys, I've never trained with any of them, and they are in dangerous waters.
I think I'll try and get in touch with these guys, maybe go to an event :confused2 , and try and convince these guys to start actually training. There's more than one good club here in town they can train at. Thier whole outlook on this thing is retarded.
They have no insurance, I doubt they have any decent medical support there. They are gonna get sued and somones gonna get wrecked, despite the fact these guys seem well intentioned and decently intelligent.

This doesn't seem like a big deal to me. Just some people having a clean, supervised fight.
Everyone seems to be getting up in arms and predicting John McCain is going to shut down MMA, the sky will fall, ect.

Kikko these guys could get in some deep **** here in BC, especailly being uninsured.
BTW, for those who dont' know, the Okanagan is the area in BC containing Vernon, Kelowna, Penticton, Osoyoos and everything in between.
