#18229 3 years, 4 months ago
I have been an MMA fan since I saw UFC II at a buddys house back in '93 or so.
I liked the Pride Fighting Championships better and then the UFC bought them out.
Now they have bought out WEC and Strikeforce in their quest to dominate the market.
But there's still M-1 Global, Bellator F.C., Dream, K-1 F.C. Shooto, Pancrase and a bunch of others in competition with them.
Any fans on board ?

I've been training since jan 06. Karate, Muay Thai, sub grappling no gi.

I started watching The Ultimate Fighter and became a fan of the sport. A classic TUF noob.

I have really loved the exercise and continue challenge of training.

This weekend I'm picking...GSP, Machida, Aldo.

I was hoping for a debate from Dead Heads that its violence and should be banned. I would like to hear opinions, and give mine.

^^^^^^^^^This weekend I'm picking...GSP, Machida, Aldo.^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I'd go along with those picks. I dont give shields much of a chance against St. Pierre.

I myself don't see a big problem with the violence in MMA , I mean they have really toned things down since the old days when the matches were Vale' Tudo contests

Was anyone as dismayed as me seeing Fedors fall from the top ? This does not compute !

It was an interesting card.

GSP has such good game planning, and he sticks to it. I hope his eye is OK.

I love Machida the most of them all, so I'm glad he got his win. Nothing against Couture though. That guy is a champion, and really represents what's good about sports.

Even the guys who lost all put up good fights.

This was the extremely rare card that all my picks won.

Yes, I have been into MMA since 2000 and I rent practically every UFC PPV. Last nights card was excellent however I wish GSP would engage a little more. He seems to do just enough to win.
