I've been watching since 1993, haven't missed one yet. I still get excited about it. I don't like all the new rules but it's still the best sport out there.

I can understand why the people who are really training might get tired of it. I like cherry pie, but I wouldn't want to eat it every day. Cherry bend over on the other hand is something I can eat every day.

I watch every event, every week. Plus i watch info shows like
The MMA Hour, Beyond The Octagon.

Cage fighting for me over the 20 years has only gotten better.
More content, more choices
UFC itself has gone down a little, because of the management. Not the fighters.
There are many weeks when Bellator, RFA, WSOF, Titan......etcetera. Put on better shows than UFC.

I'm with Killz, when I trained it was all I could think about, I watched everything possibly related to MMA. But I just can't get into it as much, the odd match will catch my eye but the majority leaves me rather underwhelmed.

If I trained more I could see myself immersing myself in MMA again but currently I'm emotionally detached from the sport and feel no excitement.

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.

I have lost interest with MMA, gained it again, lost it again, gained it again, quite a few times. It just depends on how good the fights are at the time, who the champions are (thus how interesting the title fights might be), how the divisions stack up at the time, etc.

Right now the sport is a bit more interesting because Anderson/GSP are not champions anymore. That's two divisions that open up for new challengers and interesting title fights. I used to watch every event from UFC to Pride to SF, WEC, etc, but then I got too busy and lost interest in keeping up with all of that, started to focus on just the UFC (especially after they bought almost all their competition), and now my interest sways in the wind from interested to not interested.

I guess in comparison to other sports, as MMA has only became mainstream fairly recently, there must be an element of "novelty" about it. And for some that novelty has worn off.

People need to start placing more bets on the fights. I have noticed that nothing makes a fight funner or make me care more about it then when i have money riding on it. I literally sit there at the edge of my seat and my emotions going on the same roller coaster ride the fight is going through.



Also i noticed when you get busy and miss a few events you care about it becomes easier to miss other events and care less about the sport as a whole. Its almost similar to when you are playing a game and every day you are playing the game and you dont want to miss a day from playing it. But then when you miss the first day of playing that you wanted to play and then the next day you also dont play again and soon you realize you dont care about playing the game at all and you "quit" for lack of a better term.
