Do you think that they should have grappling matches on mma cards?

Sorry cant agree here. Thats why they call it Mixed Martial Arts.

Definitely not. MMA is great on its own as it is.

I wouldn't mind it.

That's one thing I loved about Colliseum 2000.
That whole thing was an MMA event, but in between matches they had Martial Arts exibitions that seemed to enrich the whole experince.

I would much rather see this than hear some second rate nu-metal music over Joe Rogan and Mike Goldbergs commentary.

But in MMA, or at least in Japan I think we already see this.

"Fans" Boo when fights go to the ground why would they want to watch that?

LOL.

That's Western culture for you.

I would be interested in seeing gi style MMA fights (required) for the simple fact of novelty. I don't think I've ever seen two guys with Gis in a fight.

I mean hell, in Japan they have tag team fights, how could this be any worse?

I liked when Pride did it, but the crowds here woulden't enjoy it.

I don't think so. I like my MMA PPV the way they are. They have enough trouble squeezing in the quality undercard fights sometimes.

western "fight" fans do not understand grappling as a whole... there are a few of us out there that think thats the more interesting side of things because most real fights end up on the ground... but Joe Q Moron out there does not understand grappling therefore does not like it...



having a grappling match in an area where people do not understand grappling is a bad idea from a promotion standpoint

grappling matches would be better then boxing on mma cards

GDK » Posted 7/5/07 9:52:00AM

there shouldn't be a differance

If a guy wants to wear a gi
so be it
there are still a few out there that do on ocassion
but it's rare
Mostly judokas

Takimoto
Akiyama
Yoshida
Even though they seem to have outgrown it

You want a gi match
Put two guys in the ring with a gi

I love how Daisuke Nakamura still wears Pancrase style boofs
He must be glutton for punishment, begging a snapped knee.
Or maybe he uses it to lure opponents into his world
Much like Royce used to do with his gi

I would love to see a guy like Karo Parisyan when people are forced to wear Gis in MMA.

I'd be for it, but under a specific ruleset and in their own separate events. I don't think it's something the average fan would get behind, though. It would be purely for the hardcores, and honestly I could never see it happening.

March Badness featured mma + boxing i would love to see events like these make the addition of grappling matches and pull off a triple threat.
