    Didn't what Bisping got for running his mouth teach you island dwellers anything?

    You mean like what happened to catch wrestling in the US in the last century?

    It depends on which people you mean. The people who wanted catch to remain a legitimate sport didn't turn it into pro wrestling as we know it today. It happened because they were outnumbered by the people who wanted to see worked fights.

    I don't think MMA is at risk of that happening. Maybe because pro wrestling still exists as a separate entertainment venue for those who want it, and MMA remains popular enough among its current fans to keep the sport true to itself.

    I still don't know how a person with a 2-1 record, in any legit sport, gets a title shot.

    Yeah, a lot of people want to see KO's, fights standing up, GnP, and don't appreciate the technical aspects of the fights. Catering to that correlates to WWE attitudes, and Lesnar fits that both in his attitude and fighting style that totally satisfies that crowd.

    The people who advocate against you probably don't want this kind of thing to be accepted or lightly looked over, so it won't start happening more and more often. A guy like Lesnar had been promoted for a reason, and that was completely up to the guys who run the show. The cause-and-effect of viewership (audience makeup) and "bad attitudes" such as Lesnar is mutual, so it is probably completely up to the promoters and organizers. I will say this though, if in the near future all the competitive guys start doing shit in crude attitudes, viewer makeup will probably change. I don't care if they are educated or not. People aren't going to want to associate themselves with that crowd, and start moving away from the sport.

    Okay, enough playing devils advocate.
    I have no opinion one way or another btw. State of affairs in UFC is fine, as long as things like this don't spiral out of control. Big deal, he made fun of his sponsors and alluded to sex. He probably won't allude to sex again. What happened in the ring? Not a class act, but whatever. Its part of fighting. It happens every once in a while. Dana White spoke against it, and he apologized so I don't think they are promoting this kinda stuff. And the sponsor thing? Let the sponsor and UFC sort that out. Completely outside my scope of judgement. If Lesnar is stupid enough to diss a financial contributor, I don't care.

    You don't think UFC provides enough violence to satisfy that crowd? Is its real strength in its rhetoric?

The rest of the world thinks all americans are educated, smart, sophiscated and tasteful. Or something to that effect. I wonder what actual WWE viewership is like, I wish they included WWE/WWF in that article I was reading I mentioned a couple of posts ago, since then it'd be more relevant to this discussion.

    I think in the end people just don't want MMA turning into an entertainment industry completely by people who want to see violence with no regards to the sport itself. If you turn it into a gambling venue that'll probably change really quickly... LOL

    This paragraph says it all for me. Nothing against gorilla's but he was clearly making the UFC look like the WWF sorry WWE. A true martial artists would have more class in victory or defeat.
    Do you actually know what the WWE's viewer demographics are. I think you'd be surprised at how many of those "beer swilling hillbillies" hold college degrees and good paying jobs. Check out the stats not only in the US and Canada, but also the rest of the world. Then be careful in making assumptions about entertainment you don't personally enjoy.

    Some of you sound like McCain when he was stupidly mouthing off about MMA.

    There was some stat. out showing that MMA, Baseball, Basketball, football was the order for the most educated viewers (college degree holders). I had this theory that a lot of wuss college students or bodybuilding (for their confidence levels) types use it as an extension of their ego.. lol

    I'm calling bullshit on this part anyway.

    As if a pro like Lesnar needs a script to do a work. He's a master of getting over as a heel.

    Script:
    "People don't like me so you act like an a-hole so I can correct you. Then you will be the bad guy and people will like me. Got it?"
    "Yeah, boss."
