    What do you feel is the current popularity level of MMa where you live?

    I live in the U.S. and tend to find that very few people even know what MMA is. Whenever I show it to them they are bored and uninterested. What's it like where you live?

        No, he made the distinction: There's cool countries, then there's Canada.

        To the topic at hand, I'm pretty sure most people in my area have no knowledge of MMA, outside of UFC, though they would not know it as such. Those that do watch UFC on Sunshine (Florida channel) probably have no concept of "MMA" and a boo when it goes to the ground. There have been some local NHB matches though, so there is some MMA movement, but I haven't really experienced much of it yet.

          It's coming up. It's more of the current middleschool--highschool generations around my area that are getting into it.

            Since they actually hold MMA events here locally, I think that means it is more popular here than in most places :p

            Proof of my claim

                We have a local channel that shows UFC weekly here in florida so alot of people have at least have a very basic idea of what MMA is. Sunshine network shows UFC weekly. The do however, show some of the most boring fights on the show.

                  No love or real knowledge of MMA in Charleston SC either. Some folks do train in a couple of styles like a karate, and then judo ... but they don't call themselves MMAs or profess to study it. They continue to call themselves Karate-ka and Judo-ka.

                    it is really popular around here..... Atl. GA. However, I may have a warped perception since all the people I talk to or hang out with do MAs...

                        TSN shows it once in a while at midnight (EST). I think they're still showing the UFC mid-twenties last I saw.

                          I wrote a little guide to finding when UFC and martial arts events are playing on TSN:

                          Looks like tomorrow we get an hour of board breaking, and weapons and freestyle routines! Whoo! UFC 20 is on at 12:30 at night as well.

                            Exactly the same in Australia, though most people with cable tv have seen the ufc they dont actually watch it or know whats going on. When I had cable tv I watched it but turned it off because I found the groundfighting boring,

                              Next to none the UFC stopped showing here a couple of years ago because of lack of interest.


                              Pride was never shown here:(

                              I'm willing to pay for their shwos and dvds...but no luck:(
