If I had the right to hire my own UFC fighter then I can be on an even playing field. You can hire a lawyer to represent you, just like the other guy can, so you get on a level playing field. Your complaint, I guess, is that you don't want to pay to hire your own lawyer. I can understand that, but the other guy has to pay his lawyer too, so still a level playing field. Where we need to do better is providing legal representation for the indigent in not just criminal cases, but certain other kinds of cases too where critical things are at stake, like eviction actions where the person ends up homeless if he loses, for example. I'll certainly not be one that says the system is perfect.
