MMA’s latest controversy has more or less pushed the UFC credential issue to the back burner, but I thought it worth while to post this interview conducted a few weeks ago by insidefighting.com with UFC VP of Operations Donna Marcolini.

A summary of the main points is below:

good article... like I said, the anti-ufc reporters at sherdog were making a mountain out of a mole hill with only half the facts

You know what's wrong with MMA? Websites devoted to the business side of things. We are fans...it's none of our business.
It must not be fun to just watch the fights anymore.
Now we must scrutinize every aspect of our favorite sports or favorite stars etc.
The business side, the personal side....every little detail is our business....not.
How about we just watch the fights?
