Too many LOSERS in muay thai and mma

I have been training martial arts for a long time and I have come to find that right now, at this point in time, there are real low life wannabes training in mma or muay thai. I have more respect for boxers. I feel this way because I see it, I see the a$$ holes in the the gym everyday that try and act tough because they watch mma and all of a sudden they are Anderson Silva, in your dreams buddy. The other day we did sparring in a kickboxing session ( I don't call it muay thai because i'm sick of all the losers who say they train muay thai, if your a real muay thai person you fight with elbows knees and the whole nine yards) and some prick was watching us spar, this guy bangs his gloves and goes hard in training but he doesn't put his damn head gear on to throw down. If you look at him he tries to stare you down like your the one who has to say something. So I say f*ck all these douche bags because they are wannabes who talk behind your back. I'd rather play football against these dirt bags and ram my head into their face.

I tend to find the meat heads that want to "cage fight" and act like dicks aren't willing to properly commit to the sport and just drop out anyway.

At Shooters Dundee everyone is really kind and helpful, egos are to left at the front door.

Thanks to Leakler for the sig

I think its all about find a gym you like and finding training partners that you like and then just been happy with working with them and not really worrying about why other people may join up and try there hand at MMA, as far as I am concerned the more people who want to try at the gym where I train the better, its better for the Gym because they are helping to support the club and even if say 5 guys try it out and only 1 is any good then thats still good because you still train with who you train with anyway and maybe for every 5 fighters that join or 50 even, if out of that you find another good guy to train with then its still a good thing.

Hell I am having the most fun right now training on my back garden with a guy I work with from Latvia who is a Judo black belt and has competed in and won Sambo tournaments back in Latvia before he moved over here to the UK, when we roll together he subs me with ether an arm bar or a ankle lock near every time and its just great fun, he refuses to stand and spar with me tho which is a shame because I would love to see what he has got on his feet but he only likes the ground game and just rolls with me for fun with no real desire to improve his own ground skill, he just likes to stay sharp, wasted talent I think cos if he stand then I know guys that could get him competing but its not his dreams to do so.

Strange techniques off the back used in Sambo when you are only used to BJJ, because he never pulls full guard, half guard yes because he does not want to give up side control, but he will opt for the butterfly guard every time instead of full guard and 9 times out of 10 he pull a sweep just when you think you can pass to side, but maybe thats just because he is 10 times better at Sambo than I am at BJJ which would seem like a fair assessment, but I have never rolled with with such a great success rate at pulling off sweeps against me.

This is definitely the sport w/ the most Bros. And that's a very, very unfortunate, but not surprising, thing.

Yeah, this is the sport that everyone can feel all macho and stuff. It is unfortunate that this sport attracts lowlifes like that but that is the world we live in. We have to deal with it.

Meh just don't train with people like that

It's inevitable that some people will bring their ego's and attitudes into a MMA gym

You just have to accept it and realize its how most people act when they start out in a combat sport. Typically as they get better they get less egotistical.

I admit when I first started wrestling I thought I was the shit because I had big arms for my age(complete tool). The more I wrestled the less I talked because the better I got and ultimately my insecurities went away.
