Start out by watching Spider Silva bouts on youtube. If that doesn't grab you check yourself for a heartbeat.

Yeah, the fights vs. Cote and Maia definately should do the trick!

The real reason that MMA is moving ahead of boxing in popularity isn't because it's somehow objectively "better" or "more exciting" as a sport, its that the structure of the sport is such that the best matchups (or at least really interesting ones) get made one after another after another and the champions are always fighting a contender that has at least some decent argument for why they should get a title shot. In boxing you can have champions fight cans and avoid other good fighters and it makes everything ****ing dull. If boxing had a league/union or some sort and not just ****ing promoters, it'd be much better off.
Excellent points!

Basically what this guy said.

Just avoid watching Jon Fitch and you'll be fine.

Been watching it for years, Don't get why people compare it to Boxing, to me they're completely different and MMA is not on Boxing;s level when it comes to excitement. When I ask people if they watch Boxing, some answer me "nah I watch UFC/MMA", or "I think UFC is better", That to me is like some one telling me they watch NBA when I just asked them if they like Football(soccer), like what does MMA have to do with Boxing, different combat sports, how come nobody ever tells me they watch, K1 or Thai Boxing, or some other combat sport, as if MMA was competition for Boxing...

I take that back. You should definitely watch Fitch's fight with Hendricks, that was a surprisingly entertaining fight.

I feel like I would rather watch a bad boxing match than a bad MMA match, but when either sport is at their pinnacle, it is indescribable. I can;t choose which sport I like better between boxing and MMA, but I also don't feel that it is necessary. I love both sports and I hate seeing anyone disrespect either.
