You just lost me
 
Ok, after viewing the latest episode where 4 idiots pissed in the fruit tray and another idiot jacked off in the shushi I officially give up. I wanted to post something to Dana telling him that but cud not find a place on the ufc site to post anything, so im posting here. I was about gone anyway, but kept watching, hoping that Dana would put some brakes on the iodicy but thats not gonna happen. He has taken martial arts from an art to the lowest crap on TV, indulging street rabble not fit to waste a bullet on their every sick whim. Yes Dana, you are bear responsibility, it seems the BIG MONEY/Hollywood/Vegas devil has your soul now. Good luck. Dont care who wins anymore. To George St Piere and the very few decent fighters left out there, best of luck and I hope you dont end up like the others. Nuff said!

There are more than a few true martial artists out there who fight. Also, yeah the pranks are dumb but nothing Dana can really do about that and the new breed of fighters are athletes, not martial artists. It depends on the individual on whether they carry that martial arts spirit or not.

For some reason I stopped caring about this season. I'll still watch the finale though.

dude, its a goofy reality show. its about entertainment, with a secondary goal of finding talented fighters. personally I lol'ed at the piss and jizz pranks :D

Have you not watched the show before? They are always doing ridiculous things like this and yeah it sucks, but at least their are fights at the end of each episode. If this is what the UFC has to/thinks they have to do to get more viewers, so be it. I didn't find it particularly funny, but I'm sure a lot of people did. I'm sure Dana is very upset about you no longer watching though.

I remember Forrest rolling around in the livingroom with his head shaved actin like a monkey shovin multiple bananas in his mouth at once...........Forrest is the LHW Champ:thumb02: Get over it......Dana would probably have said go **** yourself......he's a dick like that....

I don't mind some of the silly stuff, but I would much rather the show focus hard core on fighting and training to fight as opposed to the goings on in the house. But yeah, the whole sushi thing was a bit much, it definitely was over the line for me, and I hope they don't show anything like that in the future.

I'm glad some see that it's just a (goofy) reality show. It's a shame that people get judged by their character on the show, versus their potential to be good fighter for the sport in the end. Everyone of these guys that are in the UFC have a dream just like the next person!

the problem is, if the show was focused hardcore on fighting and training it would appeal mostly to the hardcore fan who's going to watch the PPV anyways.

The current format of the show gives them the opportunity to take a new public and expose them to a few UFC events, the finale and hopefully the PPV events were the coaches fight, in a best case scenario, the new fan will be hooked with the caged action and will continue to follow the UFC.

This season has been great in that sense thus far because, Good Hearted Nog vs Asshole Arrogant Frank Mir is a good story, classic Face vs Heel which should get some nice reception with all the Prowrestling fans who have crossed over to see Lesnar.

Yeah, the antics are a little weird, but it gives the show that "anything can happen" premise which when fulled by this "sick" stuff, well you can turn in those people who just like to watch sick stuff and will probably find entertaining to watch two guys fighting in a cage, yeah..it's not the purpose of MMA, but it's potential money to make the sport grow.
