    Go watch one at any sports bar and tell me I'm wrong. They're stereotypes for a reason. I am a former brother-in-law to one of these people, and there are millions just like him.

    Sure, there are exceptions to the rule, but that is the rule.

    I absolutely love MMA. If you are a fan/potential fan and all you want to see is stand up, you are generally going to be disappointed. I think you have to have an interest in grappling and strategy for it to be more than a novelty.

    Sorry but I don't fit your stereotype.

    Tell me, are all football fans meathead roider idiots that are just reliving past glory and wondering why they didnt make it past high school?

    Are all female basketball players lesbians?

    Are all soccer fans Eurotrash?

    IS DOG FIGHTING THE SAME THING AS HUNTING????

    MMA: in a much higher volume, there's no denying that.

    Like I mentioned.. there are exceptions to every rule.

    There are some female football fans.. but the vast majority are males, many of which are drunken idiots. Many are just like you described. Still trying to relive past glory like Al Bundy or Uncle Rico.

    There are some reasonable, not douchey MMA fans, quite a few, I'm sure.. but the loud majority of them are not.

    MANY soccer fans are eurotrash, but I'm sure some are complete gentlemen.. and many are from south America and elsewhere, so the term would not apply ;)

    I simply am too complacent about MLB and NBA to make any assumptions into those people, because I don't care enough to notice.

    I like MMA. Occasionally go on a kick and DVR some reruns.

    Boxing used too be good. Could not name 7 boxers now

    If any boxer landed those same shots- those guys would be dead.

    Thus the reason for the thicker gloves... in which they still knock people out.

    Unlike your girl hands fighters Melindez and Sanchez slapping.

    The thread title should have been "Is boxing more irrelevant or is MMA more irrelevant?"
