Greetings from Germany!

Hi everyone,

i have only recently gotten into MMA (9 months or something like that) and still have a lot of catching up to do. I still don't get every aspect of MMA I think, but I am reading a lot and try to watch every event I come across. Thats why I also finally registered, because I have been leeching of the Download section for a few weeks now.

I am really excited that the UFC will come to Germany soon and I am anxiously waiting for the moment I can buy tickets.

I don't fight myself, but am looking to get into it (that will probably never happen though )

I am currently watching all the fights of GSP and will probably watch Fedors or Penns fights next. I don't really have a favorite fighter, but I like Nick Diaz, because I read some funny shit that he said and I like Shane Carwin (not sure what to think of recent findings though).

I hate Anderson Silva, because I wanted to get friends to watch MMA and we watched the main event of Dubai and I guess you can imagine how many of those 4 people that watched it with me tuned in to MMA again.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. I am looking forward to contributing to the discussion.

Welcome to the forum! If you want to recover from that incident, I would show them some other Anderson Silva fights. For example, if you showed them Silva vs. Leben or Silva vs. Griffin, I think they would see that Silva doesn't normally act like that.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the staff!

Thanks for the welcome...I think that MMA ship has sailed for them. In general its hard to convince germans that this is a sport, because there are cultural differences in the perception of violence I believe.

I am still trying to convert the boxing fans though

Nick Diaz is an excellent pic for a favorite fighter...

Him and Jason Miller.

Not sure yet if you are mocking me or complimenting on an excellent MMA-Noob choice, but I will go with mocking since I am a noob

Ouch, baby, very ouch.

I hate that it ended, although everything passed season 8 sucked.

Welcome again, and enjoy your stay, my good man.
