should mma have a black belt system?
hey guys i was in a gym in upstate ny recently ,i have been in the mma game since 1995. let me cut to the chase a high ranking karate guy was talking to a so called judo and jiu-jistu master , and they were talking about starting a movement to establish a belt system in mma .they said it would bring a systemized order to the sport and they laughed as they said it would bring money to their schools and events they plan on running. i am so happy i am out of the game . its a shame a sport i loved so much is falling by the wayside to commercialism. i miss the days of being a fighter and not a product brand. i see these guys as another group trying to buy credibility in a world they know nothing about. well i guess money can buy anything huh? america is a great country [well at least it was yesterday . thats how i see it from the cheap seats , senseisteel clear
