The Most Important Factor Of The Fight Game

Hype. yes thats right, nothing is more important or effective than the power of the mouth. But a lot of MMA fans don't seem to understand the necessity of it. Boxing and MMA need hype to keep people interested.
Being the typical humble martial artist translates well to fellow practitioners and/or people who respect an agree with whatever martial art that fighter engages in, but not to the casual fans, who are the number 1, most important market and rightfully so. There is no need for us, the hardcore fans to come first because we already know an understand every facet of the game while the casual fans are the students who need to learn so they can tell more people about MMA.

But i am straying away from the subject so i digress. Hype is necessary because unlike other sports mixed martial artists don't represent their local towns until they are fighting in them, although of course that doesn't mean they aren't proud about their hometowns/area's. it just is a completely different experience and like scott coker said. which is one of the smartest things i have heard him say, "people don't understand, martial arts is a individual journey" now i don't know if he got that off a movie or what but it is the truth. these guys want to test themselves against other men regardless of what town they are fighting out of.

Now i will be the first to tell you, like many others that some hype, doesn't live up to what the fighter is saying but for the most part. it is not supposed to, hype is about getting people interested. so you can complain about rashad proclaiming he was gonna make rampage quit and even though he didn't he still had you interested, which means that the hype was successful.

Hype surrounds fights for good reason..... And Wither it was a good fight or not, it gives us something to talk about.

P.S i have been up all night, it is 6:00 in the morning and if there is some jumbled shit in there...than...kiss my ass because i couldn't be ****ed to fix it....I'm going to bed.
