PRIDEneverDIED Posted September 18, 2012 Report Share Posted September 18, 2012 first and foremost, mods if you feel you must move this thread feel free but i feel this has a lot to do with the UFC.....and havent started a thread in this section in a while and chances are it wont even get replies lol so, i pose a few questions in this thread, you can hate or say tl/dr it doesnt matter but ill finally get to my poin(s)..... i make this thread as a person that watches MANY mma promotions and enjoy them all a lot, including the UFC but do you? 1. do you want to watch "the best" and complain about boring fights and anything else you can(injuries, trainers, match ups, etc.).... because these fighters are the "best of the best" but paid so much more in the UFC compared to other promotions they have more to lose(thus "boring or safe fights" or people with stage fright hell there's hundreds of reasons fighters get gun shy in the UFC) 2. do you only watch the UFC because its the only "big deal" in mma and nothing else truly matters in most peoples eyes("if hes not winning in the ufc hes fighting cans" etc.) or....would you watch and talk more about other promotions more if they had more exposure/coverage/availability/hyping world/nation wide(fights tend to be more exciting and memorable when you dont have anything to lose and your just trying to make it to the UFC for the "big bucks" or just fighting just to fight because they love it and and wanna put food on the table and pay rent) 3. do you think the sport will start leaning toward other promotions getting bigger because they have the "exciting" go for the finish fights with the young and up and comers trying to go balls out to get to the big show(UFC) or make their promotion the new big show.... 4. basically i made a thread about this a very long while back that most of you never saw about would you rather watch 2 big names fight to a so called "boring" decison or 2 low key fighters go balls out for the finish until someone is done... 5. overall point...is this gonna turn into a sport that is basing their success on entertainment over technical abilities during fights(i know its never a guaranteed "exciting/finished/crazy battle" fight no matter where two people are fighting) but with so many people complaining about fights and injuries and match ups and so on....i feel like all people wanna see is finishes and dont respect the technique and training that goes into the sport....... p.s, i fully support the UFC and will watch any fight and wont find it boring so dont think im a hater or calling anyone or promotion boring or sloppy...i just feel like the sport is turning into an entertainment thing over a respected competition.... p.s.s, im wasted and just got laid and get to sleep in my own bed tonight....so this thread is 5 star in my eyes even if theres no replies Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
