this thread made me laugh soooo hard because they now sell tapout stuff at Champs and Pac Sun and a ton of skater dudes buy them and think they look cool and shit and i hate when fat people wear them or affliction shirts. its so dumb. and the casual fan jokes are funny too, but there really are too many silvas haha but the true mma fan can easily distinguish btw. them

How about how Jet Li could beat any mma fighter at his weight class(actual conversation i had with a guy at basic training) also apparently there are guys who like train in the mountains their whole lives and have punches and karate chops and stuff that can KO you or kill you instantly and could beat mma fighters. ridiculous. The fact that non-combat style martial arts still have this kind of stigma is ridiculous to me.

Yeah, thats great for Tapout as a clothing company but it sucks because you have ***** skater kids walking around with tapout shirts on. Funny and sad at the same time.

Did you know that Buddhist Monks could kill these guys with one hit? Yes a guy actually said that to me once.

My other favorite is how Mike Tyson, in his hay day, could have destoyed any MMA fighter today!

oh yeah, the mike tyson argument. Yeah, the monks type of comment is so dumb. I was going to rep you but there was a retarded add on the bottom and it wouldnt let me. people just think that guys who are in action movies can really fight and that the goofier looking a martial art is, the more effective it is.

Thanks kamikaze for the rep. I tried to rep you back, but apparantly I have to spread the love around a bit before I can rep you again !!

Yeah, I have heard the Mike Tyson thing more than once. All I can do is laugh. I asked the most recent guy how Tyson would knock somebody out from his back and he just looked at me with this blank stare. He had no clue what I was talking about! I ended the conversation telling him he was probably right . . lol.

Well, we don't have those kinds of problems here in Spain, because very few people know what MMA is, and I'm making sure that my friends are getting educated in the sport (well, to the extent of my own knowledge which isn't much), so I usually can have an intelligent cnversation about MMA with the people I know .
