Tired of so called "MMA" in UFC
*groan*.... even the thread title makes no sense.
I don't have the energy to go it alone on this one. Just another reminder of why I don't even bother posting there anymore. On that board I am just too outnumbered and the groupthink is too strong and the moderation is too heavy. It takes all the fun out of ridiculing people.
When a topic like this one:
....can be taken seriously...what else is there to say. And some of those guys are even adults....MOST of them. Maybe I'm just feeling unispired at the moment. There just seems like sooooo much wrong with the entire "deabte". It is so 90's. :laughing3Fighting evil and upholding justice in blue silk pajamas baby!
Bah!!! Puny Humans.

This is a nice one:
ufc fighters are about conditioning and being able to take it as opposed to really being into martial arts.

I read it. 3 posts containing weird statements, but the rest all seemed to say that the UFC fighters were most effective if they cross-trained, and Kung Fu Magazine was stupid for saying they were not martial artists.
didn't see your point really, just seems like you were trying to stir some ****.

What they say is true, from a certain point of view. :tongue11:
Their bizzaro-world version of martial arts is probably limited to blowing asian cultures, perfecting weird dance forms and working on inner peace or chi or "respect for the master".You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

That has to be the worse quote ever, "ufc fighters are about conditioning and being able to take it as opposed to really being into martial arts." In just about every fight I have seen, they keep talking about how winded so and so is. In fact, just this past Saturday on UFC Unlimited, Bonner was fighting and throughout the entire fight, Joe was saying how winded Bonner and his opponent were. I believe the fighters in the UFC are all about ending the fight as soon as possible. As far as being martial artists, on Saturdays show, they had a guy from Chicago who apparently did not have any MA training, just a really good street fighter, good striker but not G and P, he took a flying knee to the head and was out cold. :read:

Edit: Seriously, there are actually some really good posts by users over there. This isn't the total headache I thought it was going to be.
12/19/2005 3:31pm, #10I would like to see more knees hitting noses, elbows hitting jaws, and
snap kicks. I use almost all kicks when I fight. I'll be doing some amatuer
cage fights over the next couple years.
And SNAP KICKS? Yeah, let's see more of those!--
