This is quite simply the most absurd thing I have ever read. If anything, a finer appreciation for the sport comes with time, especially a sport still developing a global presence such as MMA.

Is that so???

I didnt realize the Cowgirl is the goddess of sports appreciation.

Like most things the longer you are around it the less exciting it gets. Sure the love for sports does not have to follow that rule but to say its absurd is down right retarded. Im someone who used to be downright addicted to MMA and now that iv been watching it for so long i no longer feel the need to read every piece of news that comes out or rewatching a fight 5 times.

So if my post is the most absurd thing you have ever read then you really need to read more.

You can start with reading your own post to find something even more absurd.

That's how I am with MMA as well, especially now that there is more talent out there then ever before and more media outlets covering MMA then ever before. I got to watch Bellator, RFA and UFC all in HD on my TV without paying any extras over the weekend. 3 free cards. If anything the interest should be growing with the talent. Plenty of great fights happening all the time. Who gets tired of knockouts, back and forth battles and amazing displays of skill and effort? Love it. Love it, love it, love it.
Well thats why you have been watching the sport as excitedly as you have a few years ago (Not sure when you became a fan).

But the funny thing about Humans is that they tend to be pretty unique. And what applies for one person does not necessarily apply for everyone.

I know atleast 3 people that were watching every PPV with me for 2 years straigh and now they are a bit bored of it and only catch the huge fights.

And MMA isnt rooted in our society like SOCCER is in Europe. You cant compare the two. Im sure if EVERYONE watched MMA around here like people watch soccer in europe then my friends would still be catching all the fights along side everyone else.

When its a group thing its easier to not get bored then when its watching it by yourself. And alot of people are still watching MMA by themselves....

im still just as hooked! im pumped for all these next events \o/ MMA is awesome right now, especially with all the SF guys coming on board in the UFC, new blood is always fun to watch

its hard to keep up with all the events though, i agree...im very busy, i work all day then go to collage all night, i wake up at 6 a.m and get home around 11 P.m and sometimes have to work on saturdays too so its tought to keep up and have some kind of social life

the events with stacked cards i always catch live and invite friends over, but the cards where you have 1 or 2 interesting fights and the rest no doubt will be fun but arent huge then i dont really make it a priority to catch it live, but i ALWAYS torrent it on sunday and watch all the fights, including prelims

so i still love MMA just as much but im on the same boat that its hard to keep up but ive never missed an event thanks to torrents

I tend to go through periods of interest and periods of disinterest. None of them really more pronounced than others. I'm on a bit of a kick right now, which is why I'm watching old Pancrase fights in my office instead of working. But there are other times where I won't watch an event and find out the result until the next two days or so. Usually though when that happens I'm busy with other stuff.

You claiming that his statement is the most absurd thing you've ever read is actually the most absurd thing I've ever read.

Same here. Not really liking the way the title shots are given now. I know there is a problem of having very little but still, it now seems more like WWE than actual fight

I've definitely been losing interest.

I still watch the big main events and good free shows, but it just doesn't feel the same.

I used to watch every preliminary fight but now there will have to be something really good going on to get my attention.

There are peaks of ups and downs.
I find myself more enthusiastic about it when my favorite fighters are booked to fight soon.
But i usually get high on adrenaline if the fights are good.

I enjoy it. I'm pretty busy training and in school so I don't generally miss big events, but I skip some. Miss most bellator unless there is a highly anticipated fight never watched sf challengers but generally at least TiVod the big shows. The ufc is a mix I rarely miss the free stuff. But I pick and choose my ppv that I order and the ones I go out with people for.

I don't know I was really into it when I first discovered it. Then I started training and I missed a ton because all I wanted to do was fight. Then I became a major fanatic like knew every single fighter on the undercard when I was out of training for couple years. Now I've settled into a nice medium, I make time for the cards I'm interested in and I turn it on when I have time, I never pass any org up if I'm just surfing but I don't dedicate or plan around all of it anymore.

Also lets stop with this elitist attitude and general feel that you're not a real fan if you only watch the UFC. It's the major org out there and it's the easiest for most people to find or watch because of their cable or tv etc. You know no more or less by watching smaller orgs. Let's stop being hipsters people.
