Question Would You Bring Your Family To Watch You Fight?

I was watching anderson-franklin 1 and was so embarrassed for rich when they showed he brought his whole family to watch him get his face rearranged. i would never bring my family to watch me fight..it would be too distracting and if i got ko'd it would be humiliating, especially if it was in front of your kids and shit

Well they will probably get a better view of you getting KO'd on the TV than watching it live unless they are looking at the big screen.

My mom hates MMA, so pretty sure she'd be out, regardless haha, my dad might go but he's not really into it.

Don't have kids or a wife though, but I think it would be pretty hard to know you got knocked out violently in front of your family. It'd suck to get beat down too and not be able to pull off a comeback, I've heard Rogan and Goldie say plenty of times that fighters' wives don't watch the fights, they just stare at the floor and cover their heads.

if you got brutally KO'd in front of him do you think he'd still respect you?

I don't know him well enough to really answer that at this time, he's very young :P

But I'd hope it wouldn't affect his feelings about me, if he only respects me for my fighting ability I'll have failed as a father.

My whole family would want to see me fight except the one person who would give me the most strength... my mom. She'd never even consider it.

X already answered this above. But I respect any fighter more than any spectator.

Roosevent said it best:

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

My wife would be a nervous wreck and my kids are far too young right now. Once they are teens I would bring them if they wanted to be there but wouldn't make them. If you at the UFC level of fighting your family would likely be living the fight game with you so its not going to be a big shocker if you get your block knocked off although they will be upset of course.

It doesn't matter to me considering I know either way they would respect me for getting into that cage and fighting my heart out.

Also when you're at that high of a level, you only care about your opponent.

When I wrestled in HS and worked my way up to the top, I could care less about what others thought of me because I knew win or lose what I was capable of.
