I haven't lost interest in MMA at all but somewhere along the line I definitely lost interest in arguing about it with dummies on forums.

I watch every event I can find. UFC is always and i'll be watching every Bellator event I can because some of my training partners fight there.

2013 is just another number no different from 2012 or 2011, sure the sport is technically still young, but that shouldn't mean fighters shouldn't strive to take chances and try and finish fights. Don't get me wrong I'm not one of those "just bleed" fans that wants to see finishes (and Ko) in every fight, but I do not like play it safe fighters.

That's my opinion. But I am not the thread starter and still try and watch as many fights as I can. I was just giving some reasons why I don't view the sport the same way as I did say 6 years ago.

Yeah I hear ya but it doesn't always have to end in silly arguments. In any sports people will disagree and call other noobs and elitist (lol at that term). It all depends on the respect factor, you send respect to others opinion and chances are you'll receive the same. Trolls will always exist so ignore those

Yep I agree, my problem lies with the rules and judging which IMO encourages "point fighters". That's why I enjoyed Pride rules and scoring better. Thats not to say I didn't like UFC which I honestly watched more of.

The judging definitely is still rough around the edges. Perhaps they'd be better suited to move to a system like Pride had, scoring the fight as a whole as opposed to each round.

the point fighting is wearing on me a bit, and there are just so many bad fights. Plus i do not get as excited for up-coming events like i used to.

If you want a taste of the good ole days just watch OneFC. They even changed the stupid rule that got Arlovski DQ'd and now it's straight Pride style kick yo face off.

I think people need a little more OneFC and Nick Newell in their life, bring that passion back. MMA is the shit.

Heres a suggestion, don't want those divisions then? It's just as easy to follow now. get over it things grow, and Batman is better than spiderman
Believe me, I would if I could. But say Bones/Belfort for example. My table of 5 (along with the rest of Buffalo Wild Wing) was bored as tears during the Flyweight Title fight on the show. But what are we supposed to do about it if it's on a pay-per-view? If these fights were on TV I'd gladly skip them (like the upcoming one) but if it's on a pay-per-view I'm watching then there isn't much I can do.
