MMA is barbaric and a symbol of everything wrong with America right now.

What's entertaining about people sitting on each other wailing away at bloody smashed up faces? What the hell is wrong with people?

I don't watch MMA, but I don't know that I agree with you. First of all, there's plenty wrong with America that isn't at all symbolized by MMA. Secondly, martial arts competitions have a long history in virtually every culture, so just because it's not your cup of tea (or mine) doesn't necessarily mean that anyone who enjoys watching or participating is a cretin (though cretins do tend to enjoy it, I'll give you that).

Stop with your relativism Cam. "I'm okay you're okay". It's fucking gross and the fact that we expose kids to it like it's just okay is gross and you're gross.

At least MMA is real, unlike that stupid fucking professional wrestling stuff. Anyone that pays to watch that shit needs a lobotomy.

Most incidents of spousal and women's abuse percentage wis among all professional sports. Many are serving prison terms. Hbo's inside sports did a fascinating piece on it. I've never watched a match. Not my thing but I don't begrudge anyone from making a living.

Outside the ring many are making their ring names seem tame.

Pro wrestling is like any martial art. It's stylized combat. If people think any of that stuff is real they're dumb.

No problem with MMA. To insinuate it is purely American is pretty naive IMO.

MMA is a lot like what you read about in the bare knuckle days before gloves, timed round, limited number of rounds and other rules.

Naw. What happened was that boxing went PPV which opened the door. Boxer vs. wrestler has been around forever. So why not up the ante. The most American thing about it to me was the entrepreneurship of Dana White recognizing the void.

I'm not a big MMA fan, but when I watch, I respect the skill. Gladiators existed before the USA, and will continue to exist potentially after the USA. It's not an American concept.

Fair enough. Just don't forget that turnabout is fair play, so next time you espouse a view that I find asinine, I'll probably come up with something colorful for you.

I think message boards are most of what is wrong with "murica" today. Or at a minumum what is wrong with the msu fanbase.

(Their kids, maybe not so much)

Point, being, is that cousin-fuckers should not be so insulted as to say that they are NASCAR fans.

And no, I'm not a cousin-fucker....though I have fucked other people's cousins, so maybe I am, technically.
