This sounds like a great step forward for MMA in many aspects. Best of all, they've even got the catchy abbreviation already down!

Sounds like a great idea, but who is backing them up? I could get together with a bunch of my friends and make a sanctioning body, but it doesn't mean we could accomplish anything.

If this works out correctly it could be the largest news in MMA right now.

How come this isn't bigger news? Does it have the backing of the UFC? If not, they aren't going to do anything. It's kinda interesting that the two guys representing MMA (Miletich and Frye) are 2 former UFCers, but neither has any affiliation with the company now. Anyone else see this as a little shady?

This could be a great thing if only ALL the heads of UFC-Strikeforce-EliteXC-KOC...etc.. were in on it some how. But it could be a great start.
