I also liked Pride's card criteria.
So did I, I wish the UFC would consider a similar card system..

If you miss it so much, no one is forcing you to watch the elites in the ufc, you are free to watch smaller leagues, amateurs, vale tudo or the laest bum fights tape for that matter. I'm sure theyll start winging for your pleasure with little to no training and planning.

Mma has none of the same problems as boxing. Boxing sucks because it's a watered down hugfest with kos coming once every 2 years. In mma, besides the occasional lnp (which still existed in the shamrock / severn era), the sport is still exciting as hell with regular finishes and ever deadlier techniques.

Thank you for creating another thinly veiled jones attack thread.
I don't feel like you accurately addressed what my point was, but it is an open topic and I appreciated the feedback from you. I have seen you posting for years and enjoy the passion you have for the sport.

Well thanks for that, and my apologies for flying off the handle a bit. I am aware my passion can often come out as hostility and bickering.

Its just that this whole 151 episode has put a disproportionate amount of hate and blame on one guy. It really troubles me how people are so eager for a witchhunt and the extent to which the hatred can go.

To address your question, yes i am happy with the general direction of mma as far as fighter attitudes and techniqes go. Yes there are a few play it safers but those have always been around. Overall its as exciting as ever.

What i dont like lately is wwe style promotions and soap operas, and the paper thin cards being put on by the ufc, but those reasons are different than yours.

If you don't know, find the nearest bridge and jump off it.

I'm still hoping you're being sarcastic.

If you can't see the similarities between the 10 point must system in MMA and the 10 point must system in boxing, I don't know what to tell you.

Of course they are similarities, but I references what is MORE similar. What the judges judge on is more important than what method and formula they use to do so. UFC judges highly on control while Pride judged highly on attacks. Boxing doesnt judge on who pushes their opponent back more, only on punches, so in that aspect I'd definently say it is more similar to the Pride system rather than UFC's.
