Did MMA adapt some of the worst things from Boxing?
I am not a fan of the Carnival atmosphere that surrounds Boxing and the WWE. I feel that the fights are reason I am watching and myself, I don't need a lot of noise and exaggeration to be excited about, and to watch a fight.
What I am specifically talking about are noisy introductions before the fights. I am pleased that the UFC no longer uses the hyped up, noise filled walk to the ring, the song is plenty, but Mike Goldberg yelling is excessive.
I suppose the worst noise is Michael Buffer imitating his brother Bruce elongating names and yelling into the Mike. Shogun's last name really doesn't need to be 10 seconds long. It is atmosphere but not appreciated here.
The other thing that was taken from Boxing is the scoring system. It doesn't adequately relate to MMA and leaves a lot wanting.
This is an opinion and I would like to hear yours. I would appreciate it if the name calling (morons, idiot, stupid etc) could be saved. Thanks
