I am a ditz about MMA...

Hey everyone,

I'm trying to learn all I can about the sport but I'm starting from zero so any tips are appreciated!! I'm just trying to learn about who the big names are so I can sound smart when I talk about it..

trying to impress my Mom's new boyfriend who is really into the sport. Hopefully I'll learn enough browsing to pick up something..

so..

What is the stupidest thing you ever heard a girl (or anyone) say about the sport?

I'm not answering your question because there's too many dumb things to pick from.

Google is your friend, and browsing these forums, of course. Happy reading.

I'll give you the basics:

There are 3 five minute rounds for non title fights (every main event from now on will be 5 rounds as well regardless if it is a title fight).

5 five minute rounds for title fights

The champs in each division are:

Bantamweight: Dominick Cruz
Featherweight: Jose Aldo
Lightweight: Frankie Edgar
Welterweight: Georges St. Pierre (known as GSP)
Middleweight: Anderson Silva
Light Heavyweight: Jon Jones
Heavyweight: Cain Velasquez

A fight ends either by knockout, referee stoppage, submission, or obviously when the time runs out and it goes to a decision.

The most common stand up technique is muay thai kickboxing(although most fighters pick and choose the best techniques from a few different types of martial arts)

The most common ground techniques are wrestling (Typically Greco-Roman, Freestyle, and/or Catch)and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Sambo and Judo practitioners are also fairly common.

Those are pretty much the basics.

Fun fact for a girl to know to impress a guy: Royce Gracie was the first UFC champion.
I mean its somewhat common knowledge among the mma community but if a girl told me that I'd be fairly impressed.

Dumbest thing I've heard a girl say had to be from my ex who asked: "why doesn't he just push him off??"
