    That's ridiculous. Why would you be selling out if you are doing something you love for money? And you have to love fighting to do it professionally. Or at least to be any good at it.

    You'd be surprised how many people's attitudes change after a quick triangle choke. I know mine did.

    Getting choked out is a very humbling experience. At least the first time. Unless you're smart enough to already know you aren't hot ****.

    If you watch UFC to see people get hurt you are a simpleton.

    UFC is not too commercialized

    UFC today has evolved so much of what it used to be, that there are so many styles of fighting in which those fighters are the best pound-for-pound fighters. And to say that the UFC has gotten commercialized would be dumb because, what are they selling besides the best damn fights with the best damn fighters on the planet?

    When a lot of a sport/entertainment is pushing supplements rather than fighting, you gotta wonder...

    yeah. if that were true of course, which it isnt. when they spend more time pushing xyience or whatever than they do fighting on a UFC PPV, then you might have a point.
