You just sw the MMA equivalent of Hilary Duff. Nice and neat makes everybody happy. Except real music fans, and reall MMA fans.

Compare what u saw to a PRIDE or even a UFC event.

All 3 of those stoppages were ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT! I gaurantee a high level CBS came to the NJAC and said " We don't wan't anything bloody". Do any of you really think they would let BJ vs Stevenson on Primetime.

The doctors were thinking of stopping the Lawler vs Smith fight after 2 rounds because of the cut on the TOP OF LAWLERS HEAD!!

For all lets review!!!


1) Carano Fight : Stopped for a cute UNDER THE EYE.

2) Smith : A POKE IN THE EYE!

3) Slice: A BLOODY EAR?


This is not fair to the fighters. God forbid any of those ******* Reppulicans see blood.
It’s not going to “kill” MMA in fact it might even bring more serious interest and perhaps some of these newcomers will start to watch some UFC or WEC events or even seek out a Brazilian Jujitsu or Muay Thai school.

The production reminded me more of a wrestling freak show and several of the fights were completely devoid of skilled fighters.

I think if all MMA events were like this I might be a little embarrassed to admit that I train (and I don’t get embarrassed easily).

By the way I’ve voted “Republican” in the past (but may never vote major party again) and I train both Brazilian Jujitsu and Muay Thai (Gracie-Barra).
Try and keep sophomoric political blather to a minimum.

Just like in MMA you will not see any bloody fights, if it does get bloody..it will get stopped qucik.

I am not knocking American MMA fans. Just the powers that be.
So by your rationale we should let knee jerk public opinion dictate our foreign policies?
That would have meant that slavery would still exist (618,000 Americans died in the American Civil War), Hitler would rule much of the Western world and Imperial Japan would rule Asia and Australia (400,000 Americans died in WWII).

Please tell me you’re 16 years old because I would hate to know that you poses a single digit IQ.
