I wonder if it was like the town bell they had on Little House on the Prairie?

What do you think about the fact that many MMA fighters seem to like to........?

What do you think about the fact that many MMA fighters seem to like to keep there hands down or at best away from there chin.
I know that in some ways that probably comes from a lot of Muay Thai influence . Also I know that it's makes you able to throw crazy combination's. Do you really think it is the best thing or do you think it's a good example of how MMA fighters are not usually as good as top level strikers? I don't know about the any of it really. I just think what I thionk but I'm open to the truth what ever that may be

It was supposed to involve alligators

If nothing else, you canít successfully accuse the original promoters of the UFC of failing to think big. Specifically, in addition to such outrageous ideas as putting electric fences around the ring, one of their many schemes was to include live alligators thrashing around in moats. Fortunately, UFC [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] were a bit more practical in their thinking, advising against such plans because of the potential harm these could do to the fighters.

It's true. One of the original investors in UFC 1 was a filmmaker named John Milius. Milius was responsible for either writing or directing a lot great "guy movies" such as Magnum Force with Dirty Harry and Conan the Barbarian. This is pure speculation on my part - but I attribute the alligator filled moat idea to Milius.
