It's a rather obvious and low-effort premise ... and one that also exists in the real world.
Ramzan "There Are No Gays In My Country" Kadyrov, head of the Chechen Republic, owns the MMA promotion Akhmat MMA, through which he uses mixed martial arts to both push an overly macho nationalistic agenda and form his own security force out of the fighters who aren't good enough to make it as pros. Below is a real photo of Kadyrov, and not some wacky stock image we picked to illustrate this article.
While some of his fighters have actually made it to the UFC, it's not Las Vegas where Kardyrov hopes to make an impact. See, his ultimate ambition is to have the best fighters in the UFC come to his country to compete in a martial arts tournament ... to the death.
