The future in my opinion rests with the implementation of a Unified Rules Set for each & all fighting organizations. That way the fighters can get the opportunities to challenge fighters from other orgs & therefore get the most money by being able to compete inter-organizationally.
I think that way every organization can have fighters from everywhere fighting to see who is the Undisputed Champion. I think it will also allow promoters to set up fights that fans want to see...Ex. Chuck vs Wandy...for the biggest money possible.
As much as it will also go thru growing pains...I feel that its the best thing for the sport...just my .02
