It seems that despite the growing popularity of mixed martial arts and its increasing exposure in the mainstream, there are still many people within the sporting community who still do not accept MMA nor understand it, even at a fundamental level.

This does nothing but prove that Boxing is on a major decline, and that boxing feels threatened by MMA.

Just look at those two guys...not a single strand of hair left on the top of their heads, glasses to see the teleprompter that is barely ten feet away and sporting an attitude that reminds me of my grandpa.

They'll all regret talking smack about MMA in a few years when they can't find a commentary job.

i watch the show whenever i can and i like kornheiser(not so much wilbon) but these are old school guys that are closer to sextagenarians than teenagers so as uninformed as they are, they are still part of the generation that saw boxing in its heyday and dont know any better about MMA.....regardless its still stupid to comment on something you dont know about hence the reason youll never see me commenting on how a woman thinks

When you have a picture of Michael Jackson in the background, You shouldn't really bash any sport, especially Mixed Martial Arts!

Ill second that and lack of knowledge on their part just makes them look like idiots. I will never watch that bullshit show ever.

They will most likely attract people to the sport anyways lol. Everything and Everyone has haters, its impossible not to have one. They are just showing their ignorance and being nuthuggers as usual and badmouthing something they have no idea about.
