if it makes you feel better ive done judo on and off since i was in high school, and i do a bit of sprawl and brawl with the guys at our gym. as well as kickboxing my gym produces some extremely talented mma fighters- i have a fair idea of whats going on. but that isnt actually relevant to what we are talking about. i dont fight mma, my mum would kill me and my girlfriend would stomp on whatever was left (not even joking, i surround myself with cold blooded, vicious women, and im also the baby of the family. the first mma fight my mum ever saw was bonnar vs griffin, which didnt help)
No I don't feel better, I'd rather not use you as an example of the critic nature of Bullshido, and what we need to do to fix it. For the record, I envy your youth and the ability to live your dreams fighting Muay Thai. And more important for being one to call out **** when you see it, no matter who posts it.

Just waiting for the paperboy.

Okay I'll give my 2 cents.
Which in the currency of mere mortals is wortth so much more.
- Matt should perhaps be somewhat less vocal in every aspect, and start his own blog instead.
I will visit that blog to check out his musicvideos that arent half bad.
There are other ways to become a more prominent member and being taken seriously at the same time.
-Omega has no love for philosophy, and that's cool with me.
-We seem to have found IIF's lost twin, he is posting under the name of ChuckWepner and perhaps we all should chip in to let them meet up.
-Sirc is getting bold and since he is asian he cant grow any facial hair, thusfor he is doomed to lead the life of an unattractive middleaged shopowner.

I'd also like to mention I appreciate Alex's input, he does so for years on here and he is imo a nonnonse, capable (martial arts wise that is) pottymouthed kiwicunt.
But I mean this in a good way.
He deserves more cred.

You going to take being called a nonnonse, Alex? I wouldn't.
Just kidding, I'm with Lebell. Alex is an asset to this site, he fights, he calls bullshit when he sees it and he's a prick. But he's a prick because he calls bullshit.
As an Australian I am bound by law to dislike the guy until such time as I meet him in person. But dammit, I respect him.

You're allowed to fight full Thai rules but MMA is too dangerous?
Is anyone making an actual point on this thread, or has it just devolved into a game of he-said-she-said?
P.S. Maybe I've detected Matt's. He's saying that authority on this board should only proceed from high levels of expertise, and people like him should basically shut up. He's only posting to tell them to shut up. Some of them are only posting to tell him to shut up. That there is any problem with this remains obscure to him.
P.P.S. Regarding "THE FIST" as a symbol of some kind of moral authority. What fraction of the challenge matches occasioned by this site have shown both participants to be good fighters? How many of the genuinely skilled fighters on this site have felt the need to play internet grab-ass rather than just competing normally?
P.P.P.S. If Rudy did amazingly well considering the grand history of CMA vs. grappling, what kind of gemstones are we buying to decorate Dr. Tzun Tzu's Unified Bullshido Championship belt?

Devolved? It was this from the beginning, even with Sirc's OP. I have no clue what you have been reading.

Nope, nice try though.

Ahhhh...Betty Darwin's "Theory Of Devolution" that was overshadowed by her brother Charlie's controversial theory, that was stupidly based on science.

Just a quick reminder, this is what i originally responded to (emphasis mine):

On a site dedicated to rooting out BS in the arts, and Alive training methods, I think it's fair to say that if I'm on here and I put "Muaythai" in my style field, that I am saying to myself (and the world) that I am training Muaythai in a non-BS, Alive manner. And I don't see how one can argue otherwise.
There's a time to learn, and a time to burn.
