Just curious...

Just going through some of the posts of late and wondering to myself just how many people on here actually do mma training. Check out how many guys compete, how many guys do a bit of training, and who watches it on the TV...

I mostly watch it on tv, but considering trying it out after my Cardio kickboxing/Karate membership is up. I'm interested in trying Muay Thai as well.

I'm gonna take this right foot, and I'm gonna whop you on that side of your face...

Man, I am way to lazy to train for MMA. I haven't even been to a regular gym in over a year. Not that I'm that out of shape, I work construction.

Dude, for a couple of years I trained MMA, but now, I just watch it. I'd love to train again but I don't have the time. (AKA I'm too lazy, would rather spend time with friends and getting drunk.)

I do Muay Thai fella and its amazing. You'll never look back if you do it. Give you mad core strength.

Ramon Dekkers (to me ... the best fighter ever) + Anderson Silva + Renato "Babalu" Sobral + Chuck Lidell + Peter Aerts + Forrest Griffin + Nick Diaz + Roger Huerta + Paul Taylor (get a ground game please) + Lyoto Machida + Gonzaga = LIGHTS OUT!

Kickboxing.

Wouldn't have a clue where the closest legit MMA gym is. (I live in Australia).

i've done muay thai kickboxing for a while but have stopped...wrestled in high school and have done a small amount of submission grappling....the only one i've ever competed in was wrestling. Now I just weight train and try and look tough lol.

Yeah, i'm looking to do something other than just hit a Wavemaster for 30 min at a clip. I mean it's great exercise, but i'm looking for something more challenging.
