    I hear what you are saying but I think that is part of the whole problem with the casual fight fans that are just starting to come on board.

    They are not all equal. Especially not the "no holds barred" part. Each different MMA promotion all have their own set of very specific rules. Non of the MMA organizations are no holds barred organizations. Whether its in Japan or here in the US, I think the MMA's promotions are trying to distance themselves from being veiwed by the general public as that "no holds barred" type of sport.

    There is a great deal of structure, art, and sport to MMA events. Back in the day at UFC 1 & 2, I agree, those were no holds barred events. Everything but eye-gouging and biting was allowed. The MMA world is completely different today.

    You SnyperBob as knowledgable MAist as you are claiming to be...you saying that statement above is the most pathetics thing I ever heard in my life. Not even a white belt karate guy would say that.

    So to you, I have been comparing UFC to WWF? muhaha, where did you see that? Ah man I really love you guys, please read the whole thread again if in doubt.

    Ok fine I can see the true hero in you, beleiving in fair fight.

    You are such a joke. Would you mind reading what you just wrote? I though you said UFC is the **** so why not UFC your man to the ground and make him submit? And but the way, who said you be carrying guns? So you now want to carry guns now eh and forget all about your UFC moves? You really love talking out of your *** dont you?

    Thats all fine by me mate, Im not gonna stop you from collecting your UFC videos. If you think it is the ****, again I already said this is fine. I already said I support what they do and do train in what they do to improve my skills. But dont take an offence when someone say it is not the ultimate just because thats what you beleive in.

    If you want me to say it is one of the ultimate fight entertainment show, then I can probably agree with you just for the sake of making you guys happy.

    Now let me ask you straight and be honest, whats your MA background? whats your experience? what you been exposed to? have you actually trained at all once in your life? Do you know any martial artist for real who does it for living?

    The impression Im getting is that you dont even train, you dont even know how to fight. You may know your UFC inside out but you certainly dont know much about MA.

    tooting your own horn, saying you're better because you fight in the streets, is pretty lame, and it appears that others agree with me. IMO, it shows your insecurity. If I'm not mistaken, I would imagine that MMA would instill humility in a person, would enhance the fact that no matter what it is, if it's MMA, it takes talent, no matter what the venue.

    Ah well, sitting here arguing about it with people we will probably never meet is rather pointless isn't it? I mean, it's not like we're going to change anyones opponions on an internet forum or anything...lol
    Final words to you and SnyperBob, as we already established we are just going around in the circle.

    I suggest you guys start MA seriously to get the real feeling what MA is all about. If you dont know much about it please dont impose your view on others, because its not healthy for all of us. You are surely not helping yourself and others to improve their knowledge that way.

    As I said, if you love UFC, love collecting videos and watching them, please keep the idea to yourselves. Beside you should be training and not going crazy about UFC in front of your TV if you are really into it from what you said.

    Once you guys start your first MA experience, you may go around saying it is the best. I dont blame you guys for saying that your first MA style is the best after all you are only a beginer. I was like that when I was a kid as a white belt, I thought shotokan karate was "the ****" This is how the guys in there led me to think. As I became more experience, lucky I have enough sense to get out of their "we are the best" attitude. I realised theres alot more out there that I can learn from. Im always willing to learn from other styles, whatever that will work for me. I do cross train alot, and one of them happen to be the cage orientated style of training, Im fortunate enough that my friend teaches it professionaly and the "Elite" guys are just a mile or 2 away from me.

    If you still think UFC is the only one, then you might aswell go for those sort of training for many years to come rather than waste your time in judo.

    Anyway, good luck with your first MA experience, dont give up, 5 years of experience is really not much. Once you get into a higher level and felt you are not learning much, thats when you should start cross training. Maybe go into a standup sort of training.

    Whatever you do, please come back and tell us what you think.

    Dude, I believe the original question of this thread was "is anyone else addicted to the UFC?" I don't believe the OP ever put "come tell me how much of a great knife fighter and MMA artist you are". When I think of the UFC I think of it as a sport, just like boxing, football, etc.. I watch it for ENTERTAINMENT. I don't watch it thinking they are the baddest kats in the world.. Are you very young / immature? With the kind of attitute you have it sounds like you get into fights a lot which would lead me to belive that you are..

    You may know how to fight.. But can you do this?

    I know what you are saying, but I dont think it really matters where the fights are held. Its the rules that matters the most, as long as it bear the minimal rules that gives it that realistic feels. I mean you can have boxings in the cage and you can have everything goes in the ring.

    I get a feeling that the cage idea is put there to make it look more ultimate. The fighters have the option to surrender if they want to and the fight ends, its not as if the fight is for death that the cage is a must, making sure no one can escape death.

    Look like theres alot of UFC video collector in here. I didnt even say I hate UFC, I said I do watch it alot before but not as much now. Heck I even train in those kind of stuff for the sake of improving what I already know.

    Where did you get the idea that I fight on the street alot? Matter of fact, I avoid it at all cost if I can. If you read my post earlier, streetfight happens and thats something that you may not be able to get out of. Being streetwise, being prepared for the worst is probably the key you are looking for.

    Where are you guys seeing Im putting down UFC

    Damn, too many guys out here not reading post.

    Ah well.

    LOL - Guys WTF is this? stop the nonsense.

    > @SnyperBob
    You are talking absolute nonsense. How can you even think UFC is ultimate? Ultimate in what? It's nowhere near a real fight. I too grew up in a rough place. Talking from experience, alot of fights can be avoided when common sense is applied. When you see a possible danger, you have a choice - avoid it or pretend to be tough. There will be a time this may prove impossible, you talk your way out, run like hell or find a safe place. In UFC, you either fight or lose your face. Don't get me started - this is just a small example of the UFC against reality.

    > @Red GTi VR6
    You should really get the taste of martial arts before arguing with someone who knows about it. You argued like you knew it all didn't ya?

    > @Chris31
    Leave them alone, they can have UFC in the comfort of their own home as much as they want. I don't think you can change them until they get deep enough about martial arts and reality. Out there, you just got to do what you got to do in order to get out of a bad situations. Recently I had an encounter with a guy who think he can take anyone on. This guy and his gf sunbathing on the beach, me got clumsy and accidentally kicked some sands onto the guy's arm. Naturally I said sorry, guy stand up start pushing me. Me relactant to fight, he is much bigger than I am, I guess he want to show off to his ugly gf. I knew a fight is going to happen, out-of-fear I grabbed some sands and threw it at his face, guy couldn't see, put his head down, my knee right on his head, fight over. I'm not gonna play by his rules, I take actions to get out of trouble quickly.

    I can see your points and getting irritated with some in here, I don't blame ya bro. Some guys had it all easy in their younger years, maybe their momma always protected them. You and I never had those kinda life. Some of the best fighters out there certainly did not had an easy life, without the not so nice experience I doubt they be where they are now.

    And who saw UFC 57?

    Peace
