Thread: Tired of so called "MMA" in UFC

And Fedor is also a world class Judoka, not just a world class sambo player. He took up boxing in 2000, I believe, which is what makes his striking ability so amazing to me. And he and Minotauro did have some awesome matches. Fedor's offense from inside the guard is staggering.
I've always read that a lot of the looping overhands MMAists seem to be so fond of throwing are adapted from Russian-style boxing. I think there may have even been a thread about it somewhere on bullshido in the last 6 or 8 months.

There will always be guys who are better at one than the other. For example, guys like Crocop and Mark Hunt, coming from striking backgrounds and starting to learn grappling. But nowadays, even more so in the future, most MMA fighters are pretty well rounded. Guys like me who want to fight and started learning both games at the same time."Prison is for rapists, thieves and murderers.

I can't believe no one has gone apeshit over this little piece of brilliance:

You know, there were only a handful of truely horrible posts in that thread. Most seemed a little off but not completely stupifying.
Compared to having to convince people they don't have magic powers it just seems tame.

I am but a simple MMA caveman and these large words confuse and annoy me.

This thread is considered "good" by their standards? I'm getting a migraine reading this slack of ****. I want to break my foot off in half their asses.
I mean, wtf, seriously. Some of these kiddies are playing the "omg bjj and mma=TEH DARK SIDE" crap.
People like sensationalism, other's misery and gratutious idiocy. It's makes their miserable lives seem less drastic. Mankind has proven that ****t ever since forever.
People who fight for the sake of fighting are sadist and/or masochists, whether on a minimal level, moderate level or extreme one. It takes all kinds to move the world, I guess. Imagine if all you could do in life was fight for a living. That's pretty wack. Hurting and getting hurt for what amounts to peanuts compared to other pro sports; just pitiful. It goes beyond that though. These fools love to fight because they've conditioned their brains for it. They are just wired in a weird way. They also have a high threshold for excitement; they are often adrenaline junkies and thrill seekers just like fools who base jump and ****tt. It's not like most of those cats are rocket scientists anyway (Rich Franklin not included). Most of them are bully types and just like high school wrestlers (which most of them were) they have a problem with self-loathing or low self-esteem or controlling others through aggression. Many of them probably come from very abusive -OR- overly permissive backgrounds (i.e.: sociopathic). Without a fully developed conscience beating on someone who is not a real enemy is a lot easier.
Okay so the proper response to all this is if you can't fight but call yourself a martial artist then you need to rethink your classification. In that instance "Martial Wanna-be" or "Martial Novice" would be more appropriate. Conversely, a lot of the MMAs types are martial artists gone astray; Bushi Matsumura wrote about them in the 1800's. They nedd validation outside of themselves. It's called the "Bujutsu of Nominals". Look for Machimura's "Buccho Ikko" and peep a real martial artists assessment of the state of MAs as they always will be.
Happy Holidays to those who celebrate them!!!!

I'm extemely unhappy that this jobber has dragged Bushi Matsumura into his rants.
