Last night I went to dinner with my parents and decided to wear my XXGear.com shirt that says "Fighting Solves Everything".

As we were leaving a guy that worked at the restaraunt came up to me and asked me where I got the shirt. I told him and he then began to tell me that he was a Lightweight MMA fighter in the local BANG League. We talked about training and upcoming fights for about twenty minutes. I know his trainer and the school he trains with. He wasnt full of **** or talking out his ass.

This guys name was Thomas, and he was VERY polite, and well spoken. He spoke to my kids, and was a gentleman to my wife.

Afterwards I told my dad who it was and what we were talking about. He said, wow, I would never have figured him for an MMA fighter.

I hate that people have the negative stereotype of MMA and its fighters. Yeah some are thugs, but every sport has them, look at Michael Vick.

I am glad that I met that guy, now my parents know that the stereotype of fighters is all crap.

All it takes is ONE asshole MMA guy.

That's it.

After that, the image will forever be embedded in the person's mind.

Unfortunately, MMA FANS are often a hundred times worse than actual MMA students/fighters. They also outnumber MMA students/fighters, so you're climbing an uphill battle there.

Yeah, it's really a combination of a strongly biased media and a bunch of asshole fans who think they know how to fight.

MMA fighters ARE all thugs.

That's why when I train MMA I keep an ice pick in my wrestling shoe in case anyone goes overboard and needs a shanking!!!

I've actually yet to meet an MMA tough guy. Just TMA tough guys, one life gaurd who thought he knew the jits, and a little 14 yr old kid that was an Aikido tough guy. I've yet to have the experience of some guy in a tapout hoody or affliction shirt talk ****.

I'm an MMA fighter, and I'm a badass thug ************. However, I was a badass thug ************ before I got into MMA.

We can scarcely avoid the inference that MMA and thuggin' are unrelated.

Hmmm...can't imagine where the thug image comes from... hmmmm.......not that I don't find the shirt amusing but really, you go around with an intentionally "shocking" shirt and then worry about the image of MMA. Cognitive dissonance?

Well I learned from a forum call antiMMA.com that all MMA fighters are unskilled thugs.
