I think the big knockouts is what attracts people to MMA. Deep down, we all have a brutal side that loves to see another human get beat and bleed.

To be honest, that is what attracted me to MMA. I used to love to see Tank Abbott beat the hell out of some one. Then as I started watching more and more, I began to understand the sport. Now the sport is more amazing than the knockouts. But I still love a good KO now and again.

Last night, I really got excited when Werdum got knocked out. 1. It was totally unexpected coming from someone making his UFC debut. 2. Werdum's nose exploded and he had no clue where he was. I would guess that was the knockout of the night.

/shrug I always want to see a KO or a slick submission.
So I would have to admit when I buy a PPV I just want to see people get taken out with authority, and unless the fight is unusually entertaining, I don't care to watch decisions.

It's just all preference.

Yeah they piss me off really bad, last night the guys I had over were annoying the sh*t out of me, like when Sherk was coming out all they were talking about was steroids and then when they found out Diego pulled out they said he pulled a Shamrock. I was about to kick them out I was so annoyed.

next time there is a show with no KO, don't leave your buddy hanging Knock him the F.O. I bet he stops saying it (at least around you) Everyone wins.

Yeah that was sick. I was going nuts while I was watching it, and everyone else was kept asking me what was going on.

Depending who I'm watching fight, sometimes I want to see a KO too.

I think I was like that guy when I first started watching MMA also. After a while, I learned to love the intricacies of the ground game and now don't really care if a fight goes 15 or 25 minutes without any huge shots.
