    as usual with this guy, I like and dislike some of his point but thought I would share. But thought I would share his work here.

      MMA is definitely a niche sport, but that niche is strong and always growing.

          Is there anyone better than a true MMA fan?
          Are you kidding me? Have you seen the Just Bleed guy? Have you heard crowds boo anytime the fight hits the ground? And I'm not exempting the "hard core" and "educated" fans either. Those are some of the most fickle mother fuckers in existence. Guy loses one fight and "he sucks." Frankly, as a whole, mma fans are terrible.

            I wouldn't call the people you are talking about true mma fans. Sure, there are many douchenozzles out there, but I think the more reasonable fans out number the fuckheads.

            At least, I hope so anyway.

              That's the no true scotsman fallacy.

              People are people, sure. Douchenozzles are in every arena of life. But to single out MMA fans as somehow being exempt, or "better" is ridiculous.

                LOL Wolnut you posted this on PinoyMMA too.

                I agree with JudOWNED. If you don't consider the multitude of douches who are fans of MMA, you'd be counting out a significant portion of the fanbase... The sad reality is the majority of MMA viewers are the so-called D-bags.

                    I've gotta agree with the others - the majority of mma "fans" are not only douches but don't understand (or want to take the time to learn) the strategies and complexity that is MMA

                      It's certainly more difficult to root for an individual athlete than it is for a sports team over the course of, say, a generation.

                      At least I hope it is. Let Couture retire before 65!

                        True, perhaps we need MMA teams.

                            I would imagine the major point is the fact that MMA consistently proves its effectiveness in front of a massive worldwide audience

                              Because... FUCKING PARRAMATTA EELS FUCKING RULE, YEAHHHHHHH, PARRA 'TIL I DIE BITCHEZ!!!!

                              I admit that there is an air of illogicality to it, as the closest I've ever lived to Parramatta was North Parramatta, but following any other team is stupid because fuck those guys.


                              Sley, hasn't that already been done and failed? Repeatedly?
