    UFC Fake?

    Bwaha. Of course not. But check this little entry from another forum I ran across, you may get a laugh from the first post. What amazes me is that this is recent.

    Why is a brown belt a mod?

    that guy said he wonders why every fight ends up on the ground, he obvously has never been in a real fight. i always wondered what if UFC was fake, that would be funny, but i knew it wasnt, if it was there would be alot less brawling and a lot more flying side kicks.

    Is that wrong? We have a Blue belt in charge of a section here. Try and guess which one?

    The ability of a poster to write this with a straight face

    Many karate styles can be reduced in efficiency when taken to the mat.
    Leaves me stunned by their powers of insight.
    Failing to become awesome since 1976

    I like how everybody ignores the first guy. This is progress.

    That thread makes me cringe. Just like the other day when a co-worker of mine busted out, "UFC is great and all, but just once I'd like to see a REAL martial arts master go in there an show what he can do". His implication being today's fighters are just brawling with little or no technical skill and making me guess he hadn't seen a fight in at least a few years.

    It wasn't brought up in the thread, but there have been worked (def:faked/predetermined) fights in the UFC, although they were based on an agreement between the two fighters without any prior knowledge on UFC's part. Now that MMA is regulated here by the athletic commisions, any fighter caught taking a dive faces severe sactions.

    Japan is a different story altogether. The line there between MMA and prowrestling is definitely blurred, and even mostly legit organizations sometimes have worked fights. Pride had several hig-profile works in its early years, and every now and again discussions start up when a fighter has a questionable performance.

    How the hell could you take this seriously?

    Either there's something Im missing, or maybe's I be spelling some fake fighting

    But the best part was...

    Injuries were more severe and the possability of internal injury due to pressure point striking with penetration was hard to analise.
    Armbar = Pressure point striking?
    :bduh:
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    That's how you salvage a thread. Fair play to the guys who posted afterwards.
