That's what I think, i mean i dont mind grappling at all. It's just when you see a guy failing to pass the guard throughout the whole round it gets BORING. Nothing really happening, i even sometimes hear myself saying "WTF STAND THEM UP!"

Sure a pure boxer would get beat alot of times, but so would a pure BJJ guy. You need it all nowadays and that includes boxing.
Who the hell told you to talk sense in this thread?

IowaMFSFan has a little shameless behaviour in the past
There has been a change,but Grappling will never disappear. Fans overall are pretty stupid,but free style wrestling is still pretty popular around the country,especially at the high school levels and if fans can sit through a boring free sytle match,then I doubt they will quit watching because of slower action.

Fans booing is just something people do. Its kinda of stupid,but if they pay there tickets and wanna boo,let them.

Hopefully Dana knows the majority of fans wanna see action,but they dont wanna see Grappling disappear and they strike the right balance.
