Why we watch and will continue to watch.

There are few mainstream sports still in their infancy that generate the type of passion and intensity in their fans that MMA does. Wether it's the thrill of watching a guy you despise getting stopped by a young up and comer, or the excitment of watching your favorite fighter get a late come from behind knockout or submission. MMA sends us on an instant adrenaline rush from the time we set down, all the way up until we go to bed that night.

 

While we may argue and complain that some fights didnt go the way we wanted, or that the refs screwed up a decision (Hamill-Bisping)..We will continue to watch as loyal fans because we will always feel the rush leading up to the fight and the instant adrenaline kick as soon as the fight starts...So why every fight may not go the way we hoped, or we may complain about a certain fighters style...We must all remember that this sport is still in its infancy and we as fans are the ones to keep it going in the right direction....Keep up the intensity fans but always remember that the fighters are the ones who put their lives on the line for our entertainment, and that we are all just spectators who have the privilege of watching a truly great sport evolve.

This sport has lost some of it's gladiator like appeal, but gained so much more. Notoriety mainly, which in turn brings a higher level of competition. That and $185,000 winners bonuses (i know, top pay)... would you throw caution to the wind???

TO me they ruined everything when they brought in judges and decisions.

Well you obviously didn't say anything about brain damage, but thats what happens when fighters start taking unnecessary blows when they aren't intelligently defending themselves. I mean, as much as I would have enjoyed Shogun teeing off on Machida's unconscious face for another few seconds, it's dangerous. (Yes I know Shogun stopped the onslaught before the ref jumped in)

I know what your saying they gotta keep the sport safe and everything but somtimes when I pay 50bucks and the fights end werid it makes you say what? its like those NFL guys take licks every week and there mostly ok and seeing guys train 4 months for a fight and it end in 3 min im like he's tuff he's a grown man let the fight go on thats all!
