LONDON – When the Ultimate Fighting Championship travels to Germany for just the second time in the promotion's history for November's "UFC 122: Marquardt vs. Okami" event, it will do so amid political backlash and without a TV contract in the country.

If it all sounds to you like a little bit of déjà vu for the company that struggled in the U.S. throughout the 1990s to overcome the label of "human cockfighting," you're not alone.

UFC U.K. president Marshall Zelaznik feels the same.

I still find it so crazy that some German politicians are so against MMA.
