Look man, I like to think that everyone on here posts with the best of intentions, but . . . seriously.Quote:

This might not be the same stress as dying, but it sure as hell is stress. Or if you want to relate it to the UFC or Pride, how about this: Every single fight these guys take could be their last. All it takes is one careless mistake and their livelihoods are kaput. That seems like stress to me.
2.) Refs rarely stop fights too quickly. Your lack of understanding of how things work is not the ref's fault. If a fighter's eyes roll back into his head from blows or if he is not defending himself intelligently, or if he lets his arm snap (aka Tim Sylvia), he is probably not going to win the fight. I'm sorry that you do not seem to understand thse thing, or that they do not happen in super hi-definition. Try going to some local amateur MMA events. These things are easier to see in person sometimes.
3.) Gumby isn't dead, and he has provided us with photographic evidence of 6 people trying to kick his head in ON TEH STREET! AND HIS FIGHT WENT TO THE GROUND! STRAWMAN EXPLODES VIOLENTLY!
