Word broke over the weekend that Armando Garcia had tendered his resignation as executive director of the California State Athletic Commission and his resignation is scheduled to be accepted when the CSAC convenes on Nov. 17.

Many people responded to the news by hailing the development as good for MMA and ripping Garcia. However, most people neglected to say what was bad about Garcia and seemingly were just repeating someone else’s ideology rather than having formed their own opinion.

But there was a site that actually took the time to lay out the case of why Garcia’s departure is a good thing. Fightlinker.com listed a myriad of links outlining all of the controversies that Garcia had been involved in during his three-year tenure as CSAC’s executive director. The article was much more than a simple proclamation that Garcia was bad for the sport; it served as a detailed outline of just exactly why he is bad.

Even though I covered most of those controversies, I was still overwhelmed by the sheer volume of them. Being that I like to be organized, I decided to compile a top ten list of Garcia’s greatest misses in honor of his impending departure



Top 10

I had heard about the Thompson shirt thing but the other stuff was very bad as well. Looks like its time to rejoyce in Cali.

I've got more on Armando Garcia but those are good. I've had 4 shows canceled on me. One show I put on was exhibitions among existing gyms. Fighters from the same gym were to fight each other to demonstrate what each gym produces. They called me to ask me what was going on. I told them, they asked for a rule set. I told them there weren't any it was a demonstration.

We were demonstrating kickboxing, grappling, San Shou, MMA. Only members from the same gym could fight each other. They shut us down. I'm like wtf!? You've got to be kidding me. When I went to appeal they wouldn't answer my call.
