Hi.

Hi Im new to the site.

My names James Im 17 years old and studying for my AS-levels.

I've been getting more interested in MMA recently so far I've only seen UFC and a bit of K1 amd Cage Rage.

Out of what I've seen Chuck Liddell has blown me away with his ability and class he displays.

all I can think of saying then

Welcome James,
I hope you have fun here, its a great site, you'll learn many things here.

You should really watch some pride too, they have amazing fighters and some great ground fights.

So you dont do any martial arts?

I did Tae Kwondo (not sure about the spelling) until the place had to close due to financial trouble.

I'm looking to start boxing while I know it's not a martial art is good fighting discipline IMO

Ive heard of pride going out of business and being taken over by UFC never got to watch it.

At some point I'm planning to buy the 200 open weight grand prix DVD as I saw it reviewed in fighting spirit, unless you could recommend a better DVD.

Boxing is an amazing style for mma. Look at Cro Cop.

No, pride is not going out of business, ufc is alot more popular in america so it seems like pride isnt doing well.

I've not seen much of cro crop only really read about him, I'll checkout some of his fights at some point.

By going out of business I meant that it's not going to be the same now UFC's taken over due to stomps and football kicks being banned which I was told was a lot of its appeal.

What disciplines do you use?
