    There's usually less booing when there's something actually going on, rather than just hugging in the corner.

    Erm, "something going on" as in actually submission attempts, attempts to finish with gnp, rather than holding the guy tight and throwing short punches to rack up points.

    Edit:

    Also I'm from the city of Boston and I don't drink.

    I think you should be able to win by ippon, that would stop all this ground fighting nonsense!

    Seriously though, I have noticed more people starting to talk about the 'ground game' at the bars I sometimes frequent for UFC events. So the knowledge is growing.

    I wasn't being entirely serious, but it does look a lot like you're trying to defend that type of behavior (the booing ****). As far as I'm concerned, it's never appropriate except for maybe a clearly biased judge's decision or bad sportsmanship.

    The only reason people do it in the first place is because they don't realize that it's not as easy as it looks, you don't ever hear other fighters doing it.

    Yeah, but some fights are fucking boring.

    Remember Kos vs. Sanchez? I love Koscheck, but Jesus, that fight was booooooooooooorrring.

    As for the booing, yeah, I agree, it's annoying and rude -- personally, I never do it. But when there's not much action, what can you expect? In the future I look forward to seeing more aggressive fighters, with strategies more based around finishing, rather than surviving.

    From what I've seen, I really think MMA is evolving and fighters becoming more skilled/nuanced in their technique, which is great.
