Even if he is making this up it wouldn't be trolling. This isn't really something that will generate anger or frustration.

It doesn't matter on my end anyways there aren't any repercussions for responding seriously to the topic. So either he isn't lying and should take my advice or he is lying and my post isn't of any benefit to him either way it has zero impact on my life.

I'm actually enjoying the potentially reverse troll. i mean someone bought that gold.

also, your definition of troll is a little narrow, and your scope shortsighted. I've seen trolls you people wouldn't believe... attack trolls off the shoulder of sherdog. lol

That's what I was thinking. Unless you're a masochist, you wanting someone to be hurt in a fight will be unfulfilling.

Well that is what a troll is someone trying to either disrupt a conversation or gain responses of anger or frustration from others. Saying something as a joke or a prank or what have you doesn't make it trolling by default nor does making up a story to gain emotional responses in a broad sense because then you are saying Emily Bronte was a troll for writing Wuthering Heights.

Ahh. lol. You're hilarious...

But seriously though. If I was a pro fighter, it would be easy for me to defend my assaults inside of the octagon/ring with the justification that "it is all included in the sport."

Think about this. If I DON'T do MMA, I may very well end up getting into bar fights. However, if I do get involved in MMA, all my bloodlust will be focused on the mat.

It's a justifiable act. Because after all, consensual violence among two men who are genuinely ready to beat the shit out of each other AND get beaten to a bloody pulp, is the ultimate form of civilization.

You shouldn't be fighting a man in the first place. If you measure civility by a persons ability to absorb an ass whooping you would be a gardener for no other reason than the lack of toilets to clean.

Ive seen some seriously crazy violent kids join a boxing gym and turn their lives right around. Im of the belief that combat sports are perfect for people like you ViKtoricus. Gets it all out of your system and allows you to go out into the real world and not get into trouble. One particular dude I knew used to fight on the street regularly. Violent horrible fights. It all stopped the moment he started to box. I'm assuming MMA can just as easily fill that void.

Is it just me or does anyone else see a potentially epic match here?

That is EXACTLY what I thought on seeing the first post. Not sure though, about your bet after watching his "training" vid. I do know I would love to see that fight.

To the OP: On the off chance you are serious. yes. Train MMA. Spar with higher level people. They will teach you to control your emotions. First time you try to hurt a BJJ purple belt (or a blue for that matter) as a no-stripe white belt, you will learn the error of your ways. Same with Muay Thai. First time, in friendly sparring, you go too hard against some guy with real expereince, you will stop doing that.

As for taking pro (how about amature first, eh?) fights to let out your bloodlust, I wholeheartedly encourage it. If it takes you to where you need to be to not fight on the street, you win. If you develop an undefeated record and become the next GSP, we all win. If you take a violent ass-kicking, and never fight again (in the ring or the street), then well, I guess we all win there too.
