You dont make any sense. You claim I dont know anyone insinuating what I said was out of touch with reality. When I post facts you still claim Im a spammer. I think you're the one with reading comprehension problems.

This is the thing to me. It may indeed require skill, as you have suggested, but when these fights hit the ground, it's just plain DULL to watch. I don't care how much macho promotion you dress this shit up with, watching a couple of guys roll around on the ground is just BORING.

Yeah, that's why I liked some of Chuck Liddell's fights - there was ACTION, punches being thrown, guys moving around and getting knocked out - not dull, boring rolling around on the floor.

ya and there 5 minute rounds, often 4 or more of those minutes are guys hugging each other on the floor

mma isnt more exciting than boxing, but it has a single governing body and is marketed better

You need to get some humour - it will help with your comprehension.

What doesn't make sense is why someone spends as much time in the MMA forum when you hate the sport? You do realise there is pretty much no legit posters left in the MMA forum to troll except Zakman? Pity he also hates the sport and is only here to boost the post count for the advertisers.

More or less is though.

I have to laugh at people mentioning hugging and MMA in the same sentence. Same people are Wlad, Ward and Hopkins fans.

Well, you have to develop a good marketing plan when your product - stripped of all the macho posturing and WWE-style trappings - is about as entertaining as watching paint dry!

UFC ratings and PPV buy rates are sinking consistently.The fanboys and followers of the WWE are their only hope to keep this garbage in the news.

Just as with boxing if you learned more about submissions and grappling you would have a greater appreciation for the art.

It's like people that say Mayweather is boring because he doesn't brawl. Opinions vary but when the science and skill is there, the onus of beauty is on the beholder.
