    MMA BS: Not MABs worthy but worth a mention.

    Why is it that if you train in anything you're automatically an "MMA fighter." Really what the **** does that mean anyway? In the 80's if you trained in anything whether be it boxing, kickboxing, judo, etc. you were a karate guy. 90's was kung fu guy. Now it's "MMA fighter." I take offense to someone calling me an MMA fighter. I don't think they even know what MMA stands for. And I really just hate acronyms too. Am I the only one annoyed by this?

    No, but you are the only one annoying!

    Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk!

    Actually, I see your point.

    That's scary.

    So, if I "Do Taiji", AND take a video home Kenpo course, I am a MMA guy?

    Yeah, thats wrong on many levels.

    As long as your not accepting being called an MMA fighter or "cage fighter" (uugghh). What I hate is douche bags that have never stepped in the ring or cage calling themselves MMA fighters... less annoying but still lame is when people say they do MMA when they just happen to take a muay thai class and a BJJ class.

    Bingo. Unless you've stepped up in MMA you're not an MMA fighter, and preferably only if you've done it a few times. You're not a "Boxer" unless you've got a fight record, and this is no different.

    There are always posers.

    Kids who buy bag gloves at the store and hit each other on weekends say "Yeah, I'm a boxer".

    Kids who roll around with each other in the yard go "Yup yup, I'm a wrestler"

    Idiots who buy a pair of Harbinger 4oz bag gloves and no mouth guard and spaz out on each other say "I'm a MMA/Cage fighter".

    Hell, you see posers even in MMA gyms. Those guys that have 2 lessons under their belt, and for the third lesson wear sprawl shorts or Windy thai shorts, a gracie barra rash guard, wrestling shoes, Windy Thai gloves and Quano MMA gloves.

    People like to be classified into groups. People also like to be classified without ever actually doing what it takes to be classified. Some people even like to just say they know people classified into groups, so they say "Yeah, my friend is a MMA cage fighter", when their friend does Olympic TKD and owns 4oz gloves.

    Where am I going with this? I have no idea.

    I can kind of relate but in a different way. I hate it when someone who has never stepped foot into a cage/ring calls themselves an MMA fighter.

    When someone asks me if I'm an MMA fighter when I just so happen to be sparring under MMA rules I will stop pull my mouthpiece out and say, "No. I train in ____." Where the ____ is everything I train for. It takes about 30 seconds and they lose interest in 10.

    I do however tell people that I participate in Mixed Martial Arts sparring. And when they ask what's that, I tell them, it's like fighting but different. And go no further. If they ask if I'm a cage fighter, I usually punt them into my neighbor's yard... REGARDLESS OF WHERE I AM AT THE CURRENT MOMENT.
