Larry Hazzard, commissioner of the New Jersey Athletic Control Board, which oversees boxing and MMA in the state, was fired Wednesday. What's puzzling about this is Hazzard's apparently good reputation on the job and the timing-just a couple days before UFC 78 in Newark, among other unspoken factors.

Wow crazy stuff, especially after reading the article and listening to people saying how clean he was and that he put fighters ahead of profits. Hope this story has a happy ending for him, sounds like he was a class act.

******* politics. I hope this comes back to bite them in the ass. I hate to see the whistle blowers get screwed.
