Do they still paint advertisements on boxers' backs? I'd like to see that in MMA. There'd grease stains on the mat along with blood. I remember Remco Pardoel had an advertisement on the back of his gi during UFC 7. I believe he was the first sponsored UFC fighter (Not counting guys representing their gyms).

Slight? LOL! I'd like to see the IJF controlled by it's member countries, not the mafia..
