Ok first thing.First post for me but I've been a lurker for awhile but felt like I finaly had something I wanted t say to you guys.
I've seen a couple of the UfC fights and a couple of the Pride ones and all I can say is BORING!!
Thank God for Fast Forward.All that GnP stuff is so boring it about killed me.Compared to the few K-1,Kick Boxing and Muay Tai fights I've seen there is no comparison.
Now I now there is alot of skill and technique involved in what I've seen but man are they BORING..
Oh well..Was just wondering what everyone else thought about this..

I liked it much better after taking some sambo and bjj, and understanding the ground game. Most people don't like things they don't understand.
Groundfucking has a low entertainment value for the general public.
Which makes you wonder why certain MA are all flashy and pretty. Is it just to attract students?
People wrongly choose aesthetics over effectiveness, hence the “I can kick this high” syndrome.

Maybe they should start them out dressed in hockey gear and surface the Octagon with ice.

The thing is I just finished watching "Pride grand Prix Finals" and I was dissapointed.My god Royce and Sakuraba lasted over an hour of mostly hugging. was driving me nuts.They both were so scared to commit to something for fear of being subbed.
Of course I have no talent or exp in what they were doing so I couldn't really appreciate what they went through but my god that was boring..

duo you genaraly just train standing fights or are/have you trained groundfighting?

No, that's just Royce for ya. If he can't beat you offensively, he'll hug you until time runs out or until you screw up and give him an opening.

This thread is boring.

Royce's fights in the early UFC (haven't seen much more) definitely ARE boring... but is real fighting about looking good, or is it about.... ?
