I know.

and when things aren't going your way you get SOOO FREAKING mad at that racket and throw it, preferably at the opponent, but then you hit the net instead and it all just fails... and you get more mad and start rambling profanities in a weird, stuttering voice that no one understands so they start to laugh and you get even MORE mad... and then you die.


yeah, that is a serious sport.

**** badmitton, but if you start talking shit about ping pong it's going down.

In all seriousness, the UFC has gone downhill, in terms of popularity atleast in America, I think a lot of it has to do with Lesnar and GSP being out, missed opportunities. Looking back GSP and Anderson should have fought in 2010, Fedor didn't come over and the economy is worse.

Give me another infraction if you's want, but fuk these threads. I'm sick of it. In 2012, MMA is at it's absolute peak. Fighters are more talented than they have ever been, we have Junior Dos Santos, Jon Jones, Anderson Silva and GSP as champions (others arent as popular)...why do people keep fuking complaining?

To me, and probably to you since you're on this site, MMA is the greatest sportin the world. Right now, it's at it's peak of talent and skill. It's not bombarded by commercialism and near enough everyone is a true fighter. Right this second, we have TWO Ultimate Fighters running, Jon Jones is fighting Vitor Belfort in a few days and Anderson Silva is fighting in less than a month. There are up and comers who are looking to be the future of the sport on every corner, from Rory McDonald to Erick Silva to Gus, and we've recently got the best from WEC fighting in the UFC against the best the UFC has to offer (which has already made for some great match ups)

In summary, shut the fuk up and be happy that you're getting to see such fantastic action live, because sooner or later it WILL crash and you'll be the one nostalgic about the "good old days" of 2012.

Unrelated, but I just watched UFC 3, that shit was awesome.

I once dislocated my patella playing competitive ping pong. It's a rough sport, man.

And yeah, the UFC looks like a bunch of bullies and hillbillies beating each other up. Boxing is the same. It would be different if MMA was a team sport but it's not. Just look at Tyson. Nowadays he seems like a nice (badass) guy you'd like to share a beer with. Remember what he was like when he was still knocking dudes out for a living? He was an asshole. Why? Because being an asshole gets people interested in you. Sure, you can be the nice guy all the time and have respect and all that other boring stuff that nobody cares about but there are few who pull it off in the long run. I guess what I'm trying to say is that it comes with the sport and you can't change it unless you don't interview these guys (which is unrealistic because these guys sell all the PPVs).
