I am a fan of MMA. I've noticed in the last year or so I've not gone out of my way to follow smaller promotions with the same fervor. However I would consider myself a fairly well educated fan, who's kept in step with the major goings on of the sport. I certainly get pumped for certain fights, and can at times be a somewhat obnoxious viewing partner for UFC events. Never the less, I will admit that I've noticed fewer and fewer announced fights seem to scintillate my imagination and anticipation as time goes on. However I am admittedly much more of a fan of other sports over MMA. But by in large, I am in no shortage of well educated fans of those other sports to talk about it with - hence my using the internet as a medium for exchange on MMA discussions.

My wife and I are very big fans I'd say. I've only been following heavily for the past 3 years.

 

The funny thing is, I was at UFC 28 and don't really remember anything about it other than Gan Mcgee because he was huge. I didn't even know Randy fought until I looked it up a few weeks ago.

 

I trained MMA 3-5 times a week 8 years ago and never even watched any MMA or paid attention. I missed out on a lot of good stuff as it was going on.

Very into it, it's part of my everyday life. Started watching around 2008. Been watching every event since about UFC 100. I will take days off work/miss hanging out with friends to watch events. I re-watch past events for entertainment and also to break things down and learn.

 

Started training Muay Thai and BJJ about 2 years ago and now I am a Muay Thai/BJJ instructor for kids. I want to start competing in MMA soon also. I think about MMA and any kind of martial arts everyday.

 

I love it, best/purest sport in the world.

Honestly. I find the grappling to be kind of boring. I put up with it' date=' but I want to see strikers.[/quote']

 

How is strangling people to sleep and breaking peoples arms boring?

Striking is fun only when there is the danger of the take down.

Which is why I can't watch boxing, K-1 is the only event I can watch because of the leg kicks and all striking arts are down to go.

First MMA fight I ever saw was Forrest Griffin vs. Stephen Bonnar

not when it happened but on a replay. I had caught glimpses of Ring MMA bouts but was turned off by the "boring rolling on the ground" (I was 14 at the time forgive me)

 

Well after I saw Griffin vs Bonnar I was like Holy hell what is this magnificent sport? and I soon found out that it was the same sport that bored me before.

 

The first MMA event i ever watched in full as it was happening was Ortiz vs Shamrock 3 live and free on spike tv. I fell in love with Tito on the spot. Watched a bunch of his older fights and he quickly became my favorite fighter. I was a casual fan at first but when Brock Lesnar burst onto the screen in 08 I basically got hooked and I havent missed an event since.

 

also when I first started watching UFC i hated Pride. Mocked it, thought it was unnecessary and savage to have knees on the ground, stomps, soccer kicks etc. However over the years I have warmed up and now I absolutely love it.

Since the 2012 AFL final series is on MMA is gonna be put on hold

 

Fremantle Dockers take on Adelaide Crows at AAMI (Elimination Final)

 

West Coast Eagles will take on Collingwood Magpies at the MCG (Elimination Final)

 

Those games are going to be epic

 

Other sports are great as well as MMA

 

But for fans who say they watch MMA only and no other sports are just losers and not real sport fans

Simply yes

If you only follow MMA and disregard other sports then you are a fake sports fan and a loser

 

Other sports out there are better than MMA

 

MMA is alright but right now its all about the AFL final series
