Most of these guys train for a year, with some limited background in something, hop in the ring for thier fixed fight and there you go. Then, in two months when everyone is talking about them, they get hammered by some nobody. Why? Because its all hype and its basically rigged. Some lucky chump comes in and lands a giant haymaker, and then down goes your "27th degree blackbelt in ju-junksu and college wrestling phenom that has been training for this his whole life" ( With, mind you, a 10-6-2 record. ) Its junk man, plain and simple. The next UFC you watch, put on your sheep suit, like everyone else.

YFC. I ain't no sheep, and I take offense to that. I've liked MMA since the first UFC.
When dude's get KTFO, I don't think they want that to happen. You do?
I don't see how rigging fights are good for the UFC as a company or a brand. Doesn't make sense to me.

Trust me, I know, my ex's cousin and him are tight, he (Steve Rusk)was a wrestler at IL and Auggie, and taught Pat everything he knows about grappling.
But, I do have the best Stars-n-Stripes (or whatever it's called) fight story to date. Top it, if you can.
When I moved to the QC in 1999, I worked at a bar with Rounds. The head of security (Ed) was the "promoter" for the Tuesday night Fights over at that place. Rounds and I used to go over there every week, for probably a good year or so. One night, we brought one of his HS buddies, Brian Waggoner. Dude did like 3 shots and couple drinks before the first fight. They had been talking that night how they needed a light fellow for one of the fights. First fight starts, it's a MMA fight, and ended up being a good one, as I recall. Wags gets all excited, and claims that he's in. We try to talk him out of it, (he was drunk). No dice on calming Wags down, so we talk to Ed and line it up. Ends up being the last fight of the night. To make a long story short, he got hit once, and it was lights out. It took us a Chucking hour to get him up so we could leave. It was almost worth it, considering I nearly split a gut laughing so hard.

Chase20460 wrote:Its like you forget I live in the QCs, where MMA and UFC HAVE ROOTS. Ive watched some of these guys fight in bars on am fight nights back when Milletech was the man. I also remember the first big UFC style fight to come here and was at John O Donnell and everyone there left pissed off because it was nothing more than a wrestling match and phantom punches.
Chase20460 wrote:All Im saying, is IMO, its all hype. The fighters are way OVER hyped. I think I see better fights on the Mediacom show on 22 that shows the fights from DSM. ( I think thats where they are from, most the time anyways. )
