I also rarely tell people I'm in to MMA because they don't understand it. If I have to talk to them about MMA, which I usually try to avoid, I refer to it as "fighting" because I think that's a little better than "UFC".

When they think that an up and coming MMA organization that only had one event, like DREAM or M-1, will destroy the UFC!

the casual mma fan thinks Kimbo has actually a chance of beating Chuck.

-Whenever they ask me "what's so great about that Shogun guy" and I have to teach them a damn lesson about the man

-When I asked my friend about MMA and he said "uhhh yeah I like Chuck" and I said "he's fighting Wanderlei from Pride in a little while." He gave me a confused look and said "who from where?!"

-About the Tapout ordeal I saw a guy in a train station wearing a Tapout shirt....and he was fat. Nuff' said.

-Whenever I ask my friends to face me in a submission wrestling match and all they damn do is a headlock

-Not really about being a casual fan, but I was gonna get into a fight with a black kid and I hit him with a Muay Thai roundhouse kick and he said the following lines "kicking...that's so white" and "there's no kicking in fistfighting!"

MMA fan: "Damn!!! Did you see Silva last night?" "He beat Franklin up again!" "I don't think Franklin will ever stand a chance against him!!!!"

CASUAL FAN: "wait now, which Silva??" "I get the Silvas mixed up there's so many."
