LOL its an essential part of a league format in which you eanr a point for a draw and if the game ends up 5-5 how can that not be exciting regardless of the result.

some peoples logic.
I never expect Americans to fully understand football/soccer. Its not anything personal. Its all to with the media.

As for this new rule. I like it. Even if it doesn't work out at least Dana and the UFC are always looking to improve the sport which doesn't always happen in other sports. Every sport in way is evolving what with the technoligical advances we are seeing daily. In MMA though, we have a sport devoid of coruption. Theres nothing and nobody blocking the development of this sport. Unlike in football,boxing etc.

Again. Its nothing personal, I just don't think the majority of Americans don't 'get' football like the rest of the world. The same way, I don't really get Baseball (glorified rounders), American football (Fake rugby) and basketball. Well I get basketball, its awesome.

Its all to do with the media and how the sports are portrayed in different countries. You may have "tons of soccer" but in alot of countries like Brazil, most of European countries, football is life. Apologies for the off topicness but needed to reply.

Well it definitely isn't life for most americans, but we do have pockets slavering, insane soccer fans The Timbers fans from here in Portland have emulated european fans to the point of beating the shit out of opposing team fans during away games. Property was damaged, arrests were made. good times were had!

I'll agree that they are nowhere near as common in the states though.
