Re: MMA as it was
I used to rent those UFC tapes back in the day when I was a boy and I absolutely loved it (I like fighting in general). It was more brutal back in the day as they their would usaully be mismatches by putting in a fighter whose style was ineffective against a different type of fighter. You saw blow outs and blood baths frequently. Now I think the fighters are all balanced in skill for the most part. If I remember, I think the gloves were also different or maybe they didn't wear any...I'm not sure about the no gloves part but I do believe they used lighter gloves then now.
