    I propose we create a new fight league that doesn't allow submissions or the use of the guard. Only striking and throws. Kind of like Sanda with MMA gloves + ground and pound. Maybe all the hicks will stop watching proper MMA and switch to the new format.
    I think that the way they market the UFC has something to do with this. I mean, I've seen plenty of ads which make it look like brawling. If they tried to clean up their image and focused more on submissions in the ads a bit it could help.

    They already did that, it's called "Iron Ring".

    I've noticed that as well with the crowds at UFC events. However, the crowds at local venues are no doubt, still bottom-of-the-fucking-barrel.

    My experience with local KotC has been pretty bargain basement. Some smaller events in San Diego and Hollywood turned out pretty well though.

    I just try to have fun with it. Instead of getting annoyed, I just try to be a bigger douchebag and yell **** even louder.
