I'm not sure exactly what it is but it seems to be this way with MMA more than any other sport. I don't see people losing interest in soccer or NFL because they no longer compete in that sport. But I hear about it from time to time with MMA.
I don't know if it's because if you dedicate yourself to training you could compete on some level in MMA and with these other sports no matter how much you train it will just be for recreational activity. Might not have anything to do with it, just thinking out loud. I just noticed MMA seems to be different from the major sports in that respect when it comes to people losing interest.
