MMAOpinion about the media 10 year late bashing on MMA in Australia

IronMan wrote this article about the scene of Australian MMA. The blindness and arrogance of some is shameful.

It is a reply of this article by the dailytelegraph.
http://www.news.com.au/dailytelegrap...001023,00.html

You can post your replies and email them if you wish. Luckily a Sport minister(Don't know actual position) who actually did research is on the side for it staying as long as it is regulated.

MMAOpinion's article.

We may not be the biggest nation in the MMA world but we are progressing. Many are pushing for it to be banned with 2 states banning it already(In Victoria the premier banned it by pictures he cited). However, it is looking up by XFC coming back with fighters such as Soa Palalei, Brad Morris, Kyle Noke, Hector Lombard and possible even Elvis Sinosic and Chris Haseman.

Hmm, I didn't expect to have any reaction from people outside of Australia, but way to go Ironman. Well written article that says what we were all thinking.

I care about Australian MMA because the next Anderson Silva might be Australian. I care about Australian MMA because it has the capacity to produce great athletes and because the more fighters we have the better the quality of the sport will be.

Mostly, though, I care about people who lie about the sport MMA, regardless of where they live.

Frankly, I care about people who lie, but if you lie in order to hurt something that's dear to me, I want to break their kneecaps.

I mean, I write an angry article instead. But I want to break their kneecaps.

A) IronMan you'er one of my favorite people in the world, I've tol dyou before all your posts are golden and MMAOpinion is lucky to have you.

B ) I also hate when people trash talk MMA calling it too dangerous when there are far more dangerous sports in said places. If I recall right, Rugby is getting big in Australia. How can a country that backs rugby attack MMA?

C) I stumbleuponed this article so hopefully people will see it more often. Good Luck and keep writing.

Thanks, Tra. You're a good guy around the forum, so keep it up.

Thanks for increasing the distribution.

Also, make sure to vote on the poll (the link was broken last night, so I fixed it). We need to spam it a little bit.
