Ever since the late 90's I've been into mixed martial arts combat.When I was a kid all we watched was WWF and was an abid fan until the UFC was introduced to me.One thing that caught me right away about the sport, just like boxing did.That moment of impact when Rich Franklin connected with that left straight on Nate Quarry's chin and he was sleeping before he ever hit the mat, thats the science and precision of ultimate fighting that grabs me.To know we just saw the moment that mans bell rang, and to see his reaction when he wakes up and said,(what happened.}Those moments cant be imitated in any other sports.To watch 1 man use his survival abilities to out manuever an opponent.To watch 2 styles go so well against each other is why I watch.There has been alot of talk about MMA being brutal and even concidered almost like cockfighting.I think there is a skill envolved that only the people that dont understand what it takes will insult it.After years of watching fake violence how is MMA any worse.A quick knockout or a fast submission, doesnt compare to thumbtack slams and chairshots in my opinion.Why are there so many haters but yet so many diehard fans??

I suppose its the nature of the sport, coupled with the fact that its having a meteoric rise in popularity.Someolder, less dynamic sports (I dont have to name the particular sport, we all know what it is by now) are getting really aggressive towards MMA because they have been in decline for so long and now MMA has came in and overnight captured the entire market, and its got them scared.

I love KOs too. The physiology behind them is so often misunderstood too

It's simple, cause MMA is one of a kind and because its very diverse and so much goes into it. It's exciting and it doesnt focus on one thing and so much can happen, nothing compares to it. Very exciting sport that any casual fan can get into pretty much. And it cant be predicted anymore these days, and it's only gonna get better. Just never know what's gonna happen next.

i've seen WWF shows and i've seen UFC live. (53 and 55, The first championship of the IFL ) and just the fans and fighters as a whole, at the MMA shows make you feel at home. the fighters are respectful signing autographs and taking pics, the other fans will point things out or let you cut in to get a better look. At WWF you have to pay to see fighters and get autographs, they stay in the locker rooms and the hillbilly fans. and being in NJ surrounded with pro-wrestling territory ive never see a star or autograph signing since i dont know how long. (BAM BAM BIGILOW)
When you get to meet Jens pulver or Randy Couture shake their hand and have a real conversation,have IFL stars sit next to after they fight.Then see them in Iraq talking to the troops watching the respect between them for what they do, i dont think you can have a greater respect to know these guys are Men + Athletes + People who are AS REAL AS THEY GET...
When have you hit someone with a barbed wire bat, or steel chair.
And at least mma doesn't promote violence twords women..



MMA over WWE any day just for RESPECT alone

MMA is the modern times bread and games. Throughout history you can find many examples of though "sports" even going back to the gladiators. Mankind just likes a bit of controlled violence from time to time i guess.

And fakewrestling is nice to watch, for an eight year old.

Theres room for both... I watch both, and thoroughly enjoy both...

Also, dude... What? You live in NJ, Ring of Honor, Jersey all pro... there are some legendary indy feds near you. Branch out, and see some good wrestling. Also, you have to respect wrestlers too, they go through a lot, and put their bodies through hell. Is it staged? yes. Fake? Not so much.

WOW I use to watch wwf when it was good.Like 8 yrs ago.Now its a comedy show,along with corny drama.I went to ohio and saw Couture vs Silvia, and like submission artist said,John Cena{whoever he thinks he is}wanted 20 dollars for an autograph.LOL he was in a room u couldnt even see in.Like i wanted to anyway.But Wanderlei silva was sighning for free.SO was Chris Lytle,Mark Coleman,Wes Sims,And like 15 other fighters were greeting us.Some of the nicest guys I ever met.PS and they r real men.Instead of paying to meet a piece of shit like Cena.Wrestling is corny man.Not even close to real.lol and they are not athletes,they take roids and spray water on theyre muscles to then jump around each other.Sounds like bad 70's porn to me.But hey to each his own.But dont try to compare those fake ass fighters to real ones.
