that was an awesome read man, thanks for the article. Damn I really liked that alot, made alot of solid points. Baronis entry on the first live MMA event on CBS or what not was sad for the sport, shit like that makes me cringe to say I like and train in such a sport. Headbutting someone like Baroni did as well also makes me look away, we need to support Mixed Martial Arts not Ultimate Fighting and/or a WWF type of MMA.
Casual fans are needed yes but tauntin oppenents and having no class etc is not something we should be participating in just to get "casual fans". If they want to see people killing each other and retarded intros, head butts, sucker punches, shit talking etc then go watch WWF or a movie
