    You're gonna love this: "Mixed martial arts = legalized dog fighting"

    Here's the link to that ever so respected site of sites, Tigerweekly.com

    Check this out.

    I didn't pretend.

    Also, dogs tend to die with alarming frequency in the dog fighting world. Once the death rate for fighters in MMA achieves parity we can return to this woefully ignorant simile.

    Hack sensationalist journalism fails when written with the skill of a 7th grader. Wouldn't you agree?

    WTF? Swords?!

    I'm still waiting for ESPN-MMA, which is to say ESPNeleventybillion.

    Instead of having a serious discussion about why this is barbaric and a sign of straight-up devolution, ESPN shows UFC commentator and comedian (yes, comedian) Joe Rogan yelling and carrying on about how graceful it is when Chuck Liddell (a popular UFC fighter) straddles another guy and relentlessly beats his face in. Seriously?
    "Straight-up devolution"..... I bet this twit's a creation scientist.

    Of course, how could I rant and rave about how terrible MMA is without talking about boxing and even professional wrestling?

    First of all, boxing is a completely different animal. Boxing is regulated by various entities like the Nevada State Athletic Commission; meanwhile, MMA organizations run from such regulation.
    Fact check alert! According to the miniscule amount of journalistic chops I have by virtue of having read newspapers a few times, I detect an incredible failure to research.

    Seriously, someone needs to point out to this tigerweekly site that this guy isn't doing his job and that if they paid him for this "reporting" they should seriously consider closing up shop, because with business savvy like that they're fucking doomed.

    As for professional wrestling, at least that is staged. The people who watch the WWE do it as much for the soap opera storylines as they do for the violence. It is scripted and choreographed. I would rather live in a culture that watches choreographed fighting rather than this barbaric and senseless human cock fighting.
    I love this, cause here comes the irony.

    LuLz, cause the WWE isn't a bunch of steroid using guys beating each other up that results in huge injuries and deaths and has a veritable mortuary full of dead kids that tried to mimic their favorite wrasslers to its credit.

    I can't believe this fucking failure of a writer pulled this travesty off without once saying "human cock-fighting". I mean, did he miss the memo?

        Nice post from OP. Shall we compile a well thought out response to send to his email, highlighting the flaws in his argument?

          Still, can we invite the writer to come and talk here so we can smack him upside the head?
          Or, you know, beat him with shovles??

          How could someone acctaully think of writing an article without some sort of research, I mean, his opinion is clear, but there is no evidence to support his claims and there seems to be no reasoning or proof behind his wild parralells to dog and cock fighting. Geez, its like an episode of 'Today, Tonight'... Damn i hate that show.

              I think everyone jumping on the guy hurling abuse is only going to push him further into his dilusions. Hence my previous post.

                Fine, be nice. It's much less fun though :(

                I do agree with you that he needs education, because everyone who reads this paper is now going to have that image of MMA burnt into their uneducated brains. Though they still will unless he writes another article from his new perspective. If he gets one.

                Dont underestimate the power stupid people have. Especially when they write stupidity down, because they then spread the stupidity. It's a well enough written article, but the content is the reason it's here.

                  Why doesn't someone local too him invite him to a free lesson so he can see the technical side of the sport and feel how athletic you have to be to do it?

                    I doubt he'll be responding to any e-mail you send him. A link to the article was posted on the sherdog forums so his inbox is bound to be full with half-baked rants.

                    Plus when I saw his article the other day I added his email to a bunch of gay porn spam lists. So his inbox will be full with that too...

                      I think this is the most sane reaction to that article.

                        Wait, if you keep rewarding this guy for articles like this just imagine what he'll write next....

                          Here's post #39 from the article's comment section:
                          I doubt this was the real Dana White posting (as it lacks any expletives), but I thought I'd share it nonetheless.

                            MMA = Human Dogfighting - including a reference to Michael Vick

                            Notable highlights:

                            1. See his comment on how boxing embraces regulation while MMA orgs "run from it."

                            2. There's no such thing as graceful MMA fighters.

                            3. 131 comments all basically calling him a dumbass.

                            4. Obligatory "cock-fighting" reference.
