    One of the things you can say about professional wrestling is that they are always looking for new ways to bring viewers to their show. After a while, seeing two men roll around on each other and punchin each other gets a little old... no matter how many hype up ppv commercials your company makes. As mentioned by the poster in the article you quoted, he's right that a lot of fights go to decision... people wanna see the lights get knocked out and these fighters have figured out a way to train hard enough to float through a few rounds, get to a decision and get a paycheck without having to sacrafice the dignnity of being knocked out

    Every time I see someone with a Tapout shirt or hat I ask them where they train.

    As a UFC fan myself, it isn't the other fans that get me, it is the guys who think they take part in the sport.

    If someone ever tells you that he "Trains in MMA", he is probably an idiot and has no more combat skills then an 8 year old girl scout.

    I did wrestling for 6 years. I got my blue belt in B jiu jitsu, and I have been around the gym long enough to understand the boxing/kickboxing elements. MMA is a natural combination of all of these, so I enjoy taking part in and watching MMA. Like any sport, it is easier to enjoy if you know what they are doing. (Mother ****ing Joe Rogan is not one of these people. That idiot has never lasted a fight without suggesting a d'arce choke.

    *Guy shoots, other guy sprawls*

    Joe Rogan "D'arce choke, now!"

    No Joe, shut the he|l up. You have been talking out of your *** for as long as you have been covering the sport. I have waited your you to stumble upon atleast one accurate insight, I am yet to find one from you.

    I don't "train" in MMA, the only people who train in MMA are the guys who do it as a pro( more than likely after atleast 10 years of training a specfic martial art), and guys who saw it on TV.

    Moral of the story: Don't be afraid to beat up some ***hole with a tapout shirt.

    You'll be fine.

    Because the UFC systematically destroyed them all.

    There are guys fighting in the UFC who only have like 3 pro fights anywhere else.

    I disagree with your Rogan assessment, having a decent understanding of the sport myself, I run into very similar thinkings as I watch fights. Many times I'll announce almost identical to what he's about to say considering the situation. Could just be a similar train of thought but he is far from the "uninsightful fool" you suggest.

    But you are correct on the "train mma" cats.

    I don't know for sure, but I think Rogan has some experience in TKD and that is pretty much it.

    Lol, sorry, I'll agree to disagree on it, but "unincightful fool" puts it kindly.

    Last fight I saw he called an Anaconda choke a "modified guillotine". Dude knows nothing and is prone to just make stuff up. I wish Goldberg knew a little bit just so he could call him out on it.

    Actually Rogan actively practices BJJ at 10th planet with Eddie bravo. He's more versed than you think.

    Brookins/Oliveira?

    I have no problem with him calling that a modified guillotine. He closed guard and pulled back guillotine style, so it was kind of weird. It was an arm in triangle, but not really a text book version of an anaconda. I would have had no problem with him calling it an anaconda either.

    MMA and Boxing was about as amusing as watching people argue over it.

    I USED to like boxing, but it got old. I never liked MMA, simply put, because of the wrestling. There is technique and skills required in both, but its the same reason I dont watch Golf, its boring.

    One of the worst cards I can remember with the venue change and fight changes.

    Huge decline in the US. Every single MMA fan knew that was going to happen. Guess what, 148 will be a huge rebound with Middleweight Championship Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen as the main event and a great card to back i tup.


    Most important note.... UFC 147 did HUGE HUGE HUGE in Brazil. Massive.




    Oh but people think UFC/MMA is dying?? lol.

    I don't even know who Sonnen is. Jfc, how long does it take for GSP to recover? They might release the walking dead ep 2 before he gets back in the cage!
