Default Re: Al Bundy's Opinions on MMA

It would be nice to see something like the early UFC's held once a year as a proving ground to make sure that MMA remains on the right track--a combat-effective direction--compared to the other martial arts systems.

Now that MMA is a regulated (and respectable) sport like boxing, kickboxing, and wrestling, there are inevitably going to be those who claim it's not "deadly" enough. For these naysayers, there should be a Vale-Tudo style tournament open to champions of any style held once every couple years (like the Olympics). As long as the MMA guys continue to dominate, we'll have proof that the recently-developed BJJ-Wrestling-Boxing-MT mixture we call "MMA" is the most effective one around.
