Good read man - enjoyed it.
With regards to Felony Fights, I have never heard or seen this stuff before, but it sounds horrific. The description of the bout where the guy was out cold but took 5 more punches to the face and a jumping knee slam to the head is really horrible.
Events like that will obviously stay underground and I certainly won't be engaging in viewing any of them. I like the rules and the restrictions, its sensible and wise and we all accept that they are needed. I think we would be hard pressed to find a member of this forum who would want to go back to no holds barred.
As for the gay fighter - fairplay to him for being open about it, I honestly believe that there wouldn't be an issue if a gay fighter was to come into the UFC, you may get the idiots in the crowd dishing out some childish chants early days, but things would soon quieten down. In this day and age there really isnt an issue with it anymore socially and thats the way it should be.
Still, the UFC will continue to grow because they do the right things for the sport.
