One is *real* and the other is *prechoreographed*.

Other then, perhaps the demographics.
In what year where you born, again?
A lot of what comes out of the MMA community today reminds me of how the pro wrestling fanbase reacted when the "Realistic Era" of the NWA gave way to the completely over the top, larger than life, cartoon era of the 80s, with Hulk Hogan, the Ultimate Warrior, and the like.
Got me there, '85. In my defense, I've read books, and there are still people in the PW community bitching about the subject. If you prefer, I had a front row seat for wrestling's switch from "Family Friendly" to the Attitude Era, with the sex, swearing, and ultraviolence, which also brought in a whole new type of fan...who were loathed and despised by those of us who still believed that swearing, misogynism, and breaking the rules were what the bad guys did.

If this is true, it's a fair point.

That's like saying "Sure Dana white swore a lot, but the guy who played the comedian in the watchmen film raped a woman, why aren't we after him!!"
