So you don't enjoy watching fights, you just like seeing people get knocked out and submitted.
Did you not feel the possibility of a finish when Benavidez dropped Johnson in the fourth round? I felt that possibility the whole time, because anyone who has seen his fights knows he hits hard, and he was fighting with bad intentions all night.
I enjoy watching fights, more so if there is a higher probability of a finish. Tell me you would rather watch Johnson defend his title than say, Anderson Silva? The possibility of a magical finish is so exciting and glues me to my laptop screen every single time. The heavier fighters pack such power that anything can happen.
Was the Benavidez-Johnson fight good? I'd say yes. But was it that exciting that it got me sitting at the edge of my seat? No. The only time I got really interested in the fight was the 1st round ( to get a rough gauge of who is going to win the fight ) and the 4th round.
Maybe I'm judging the division before it really has the chance to set off, but thats just what I feel right now. I think that the flyweight division is just too extreme. How many fully grown men weigh around 125 pounds? How many of these men are good enough athletes to be UFC fighters? How many of these athletes would want to choose the path of being a UFC fighter?
Probably need a longer time before I can determine how I truly feel about the division though. If there is more talent flowing in and better finishers, then I'm all good.
Edit: On a side note, I absolutely hate it when one questions another of being a fight fan just because they have difference preferences in fights. Lets give an example. You like rock, while I like pop. Then you say I'm not a real fan of music just because I like the mainstream pop nowadays, which absolutely sucks. However, its just because my taste for music differs from you. Same for MMA. You prefer watching flyweights fight, while I have preference for those that are able to finish a fight. Not saying flyweights can't finish a fight, but you have to admit the probability is lower.
