    UFC 76 seemed to be going the other way, except people booing Sanchez. There were some cheers for grappling exchanges. I was surprised to hear that.

    I get the impression that so many of the fineries of MMA are lost on the average punter who will pay for a seat. My view is the average UFC fan is a moron, who is into rasslin' and has been attracted by "cage fighting" rather than some style v style view or an intellectual curiosity about training methods.

    That's why so many people were depressed by the UFC buying out Pride. The Japanese actually appreciated the differences between fighters and knew about stylistic differences. The UFC crowd seems filled with rasslin' fans who just want to see someone get KTFO'd while they get drunk.

    Booing when fighters are clinching? Booing when fighters are grappling? Booing when fighters are striking. There's all three ranges of fighting, what more do you want, faggots?

    Also everyone is either a "UFC expert" or a "UFC fighter." Which really means, "I watch a lot of UFC." and "I pay $250/month to take 'MMA classes' at the local gym."

    Why are you UFC fans so stupid?
    I didnt know faggots watched MMA. Wow, you never cease to amaze me.

    I have people over to watch all the UFC events, and I always hear the comment, "Why are they just laying there?"

    I always respond, "So that guy wont choke the **** out of him"

    Its lost on them.

    It took a long time for me to personally start appreciating the lying-on-the-ground-like-a-couple-of-faggots part. I guess I got over that phase since I'm doing bjj myself too ;)

    I have to say, Joe Rogan helped a lot in it supplying some lingo and ideas on what to research. Then again, I hate him for giving the term "chess match" to Goldberg, who really should be switched for someone better.

    Rogan's fucking uselss as well.

    If he'd take Bravo's cock out of his mouth he might be able to talk about BJJ in MMA but he doesn't he just screams about Rubberguard when anyone looks for an omoplata and calls side ride taking the back.

    What? That would be fucking awesome!

    They need to introduce _ing _un to the UFC. Then the fights wouldn't be boring. There'd be plenty of blood, broken spines, super quick, super brutal KOs.

    And if anybody booed the _ing _un fighter, they'd get KOed too. Because chunners are so hardcore.

    Yeah, well, after you get familiar with grappling you don't really Rogan all that much either. I really enjoy watching TUF because there are no commentators. That, and the first round of Quarry vs. Sell in UFN11 when the mics had failed.
