Don't be impertinent. The mods just don't want a lefty righty flame war.

This story is about MMA, and so is relevant to the forum. The mods just don't want any more irrelevant political threads that degenrate into name calling and idiocy.

I think that the idea that what we're doing is mixing skills is the problem, too. And I think the rule change would be that when you're boxing, you box. When you're wrestling, you wrestle. But there's a reason why when a boxer falls to one knee or two knees, that the other boxer can't come up and hit him in the head


Can this guy even tie his own shoes??????

it is as if the complexity of MMA is one of the reasons making him oppose it; almost as if he can't rap his head around it. and the boxing thing...is he kidding me!?!?!?!? boxers take repeated punishment to the head, and the fact that they get up makes boxing a lot more dangerous then MMA. and a boxer getting on one knee is the equivalent of a tapout, only it doesn't stop the fight so it is even more dangerous. this guy is a tool who knows nothing about MMA and is stuck in his glory days when Ike was still president...the dude graduated college in 1961.

i am tired of old, ignorant people wiht power putting stops in MMA's attempt to go mainstream. i will certainly write many letters to him and his constituents to try and make him see the other side.
