When people watch guys like Nick Diaz have a pre-pubescent meltdown at the weigh ins or flip off his opponents in the cage, they're not going to get a good image and going to think that MMA is just fighting when it's really smething more. Not to mention post fight brawls and regular use of narcotics don't bode well either.
Not to mention retiring after being bewildered by the safety first style of the Natural Born Killer!
