    Germans also ban a lot of violent movies, cut blood from video games etc.

    Its amazing how a country that has started 2/2 world wars has managed to get so pussified.

    First of all, Germany didn't start World War I. Serbia and the Austro-Hungarian Empire did.

    Second, Not really. It's a reaction to the country's own violent past; if Germany Today wants to distance itself from the warmongering of Germany Past, wouldn't it fit that they'd be a little more sensitive to violent imagery in the media?

    Maybe we can get a Team Romani vs Team Germany in M-1 as some kind of "reperation". MMA or FCSF.

    They started it as in it wouldnt have become a world war without them attacking Belgium and France.

    Ratner will be over there pretty quick, I imagine. Understanding that it still puts the kybosh on an event there, the ban is only a broadcasting ban. Anyone know if this would apply to PPV (not certain if the rules are different for each format there).

    Wrong. No one knows what course of events would transpire had past history changed.

    Gaaaah, stop living in Narnia, hillBULLIES.

    • No zhe Dschermans are no nazees any more. They listen to Miley Cyrus, love Obama and hate the US, just like anyone else.

    • The concepts of liberty in Europe and in the US is completely different. Old ****. Like, are people SMRT enough to live without regulations? Well, after having participated in two WWs, having killed or raped every Polish, chased away every Frenchie, and having gassed every Jew, yeah, many Germans tend to concur that MAYBE THAT'S NOT MUCH OF A GOOD IDEA. And, honestly, you all can be darn glad that they do.

    • BEFORE YOU SUCKERS DARE TO RESPOND: I AM EL SPANIARDO! YO SOY ESPAŅOL! LA GRAN TORTILLA! DA KILLAH PAELLA! I JUST LIVED THERE FOR A VERY LONG TIME! AND I FREAKING LOVE THEM, BECAUSE THEY ARE MY FRIENDS AND MY FAMILY!



    On a more mature level:

    Yeah, was pretty sure that would happen.
    Why? Because the censoring bureau is likely the most courted place in Germany. You got to sell a new media format, you got to go there and essentially bribe them. FTR, K-1, M-1, DREAM, etc. are still alowed. So, what will the UFC have to do to win them?

    Two things:

    1. Maybe we will see a few German fighters in the UFC very soon. Means, mind my words, should Denis Siver ever get a title shot.


    1. Maybe there will be something pretty crappy like UFC-sponsored children care, or even an event "UFC against nazis".


    And that will be about it.

    Yes but the fact of the matter is they did attack Belgium and France. The argument isn't "well if they didn't attack those two SPECIFIC countries we wouldn't be in a 2nd world war" he's just stating a fact. And if not Belgium and France then it would just be two other countries. Germany was poor and desperate hence why they built up such a strong army to boost morale and their economy.
