    The TapouT Show Discussion Thread

    Alright, for weeks the TapouT show on versus has been the elephant in the corner of the room here at Bullshido; it gets mentioned in passing and it is hard to ignore, but most people try very hard to pretend that it does not exist. So, with new episodes starting tomorrow, I figured what better time to have an actual thread dedicated to the show then now.

    This thread is dedicated to all things TapouT. Talk about anything from Matt Major's good sportsmanship to where Mask buys his groovy camo facepaint.

    I tell you what I hate about Tapout, the show : the Tapout crew. And I'll quote what other people say on the subject since it perfectly reflects the 1Mill question about these clowns:

    Just look at the names these posers use for themselves: Mask, Punkass and Skyskrape. They may sponsor fighters and ****, but so is the beer-gutted punk who pays for a ticket and buys beer and hotdogs at an MMA event just to get a chance to yell "fight like a man, you homo."

    Honestly, wtf is with the afro wigs and the fucking makeup? That's stupid poser's insanity and stupidity. That's the type of image people get when they watch MMA. For every good deed they may do via sponsoring fighters, they undo it in the eyes of the public with their lunatic antics.

    How can these...





    ... be differentiated by the TV audience from this?

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    While they were a big part of keeping MMA alive in California during the dark ages (in a far, far bigger way than Muchacha seems to understand), they're no longer needed, the brand has become "No Fear" v2.0 (and will soon be bought out by Walmart), and I'd like to see them crash and burn, or die, or become hermits.

    I think that the TapouT show is the worst thing they could do for marketing their products. After watching those screaming MMA LARPers, it makes me think everyone wearing TapouT shirts are cheese-dicks.

    But...that's what they've been doing for fucking EVER, it's just that now they have a TV show. If you didn't realize that then you haven't been paying attention.

    The sad thing about tapout is that it's a pretty fucking cool idea for a show (amature fighters pro debut fight, bit of the history of the up and comers). If those guys didn't try so hard to be 'edgey' or whatever the hell they're trying to do I'd watch it more.
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    The fact that they kept MMA alive in the past, or the fact that I may not understand it as you said it, neither of that can explain nor justify the retarded clownish faggotry of their costumes, wigs, camo makeup and ****. They are pushing their clown **** as the public "reality tv" face of MMA.
