Default i am completly bored of MMA

MMA is over saturated, its everywhere, im seeing repetitive fights....

if its on so much it loses its appeal, the big fights are diminshed, and the build up for fights and that whole interview process is tired....

anyone else feel the same?

No.
With the merging of PRIDE and the UFC the big BIG fights should be just around the corner.
And if you feel bored of MMA because of over-saturation then you must be bored of every other sport on the planet.

hes got a point, im not tired of it, but it is being oversaturated, the hardcore fans will love it. But the mainstream fans are beginning to feel that way, I have a few buddies who feel that way.

All the "mainstream" fans got tired of it as soon as Liddell got beat .

Leaving MMA now would be like leaving boxing when Ali was coming back in 1970........oh boo hoo.....there are going to be too many good fights too soon.......I'm bored

MMA is just starting to get going and entering the mainstream.

There is a ton of it...so the anticipation is gone. But at the same time, having too much MMA is like having too much pizza. I'm not sure if it's possible.

boxing lacks that middle class polish to it, its a rough diamond

i'll be honest, im sick of the fanbase and the ufc presentation more than anything. Cage Rage in the Uk is more edgy

I will agree that the last few boxing fights, especially Saturday's HBO card, were outstanding. There's something about an evenly matched boxing fight that seems a little more epic. The UFC, with so many PPVs, can only pull off those "epic" type fights every 2-6 months. Alot of the rest are garbage, like the last few cards.

Are you being serious? You are bored with it, because they are too many big fights, too often? I sure wish boxing had that problem. You know what I am tired of? Waiting for 6 months for a big fight to come along, only for it to be a huge let down when it finally happens. That is after 10 press conferences where they say the same thing in 10 different cities.

I sure wish that the boxing stars had the huge habit of boring their fans with mega fight after mega fight. That would be such a shame. MMA is giving the fans what they want, and I certainly don't see how you can be bored with seeing "too many" great fights. It isn't like you don't still have the anticipation of two guys finally dispatching of the other top guys until they meet each other.

I have some friends that were all about MMA, they would catch every ppv and then all of a sudden they stopped talking about it and slowly stopped watching all the matches. Most MMA fans seem to be bandwagon fans and a lot seem to be getting bored with it already.
