The problem is MMA isn't really a sport in many fans eyes, it's entertainment. In any sport no matter how boring a player is, if he was one of the best he would be popular. That doesn't translate in MMA. I mean look at the BMF title, it's two solid but not top tier fighters headlining MSG.
MMA is not really a sport and I have never treated it as one. It has the trappings of a sport to make it marketable and so that regulators allow it, but at its core, its just a fight. I want to see interesting fights and interesting fighters. Might Mouse is a terrific and fun fighter, amazing to watch even if he never crossed over.

What does bum me out is that the current rules are being exploited and we are getting boring as shit half-position stallouts. The Kamaru Usman/Covington style of fighting is the worst style out there and I am all for these boring ass dudes getting knocked out of the game.

That thing is glorious lol

Good on Kelvin getting punished. The cheer of victory for coming in at 184 made it so blatant. Like if he had been 184 in the back before the official weigh in they wouldnt have been so relieved to see that number.

I'm really intrigued to see what happens with the BMF belt in the future. Is it only going to be one weight class? Who's going to fight for it? What if a non BMF wins it?

A rare Nick Diaz sighting at the weigh-ins. Best card of the year, and not a single fight fell through. Hyped!

UFC is the carniest shit and whoever wins that dumbass belt should refuse it, call it out as the dumb bullshit it is, and call Dana an idiot for green lighting it.

the fighters came up with the idea of the belt and having the Rock involved. They love it.

I love the concept of this event as a direct repudiation of the boring as shit belt that will be defended next month

On Reddit, I made a Street Fighter reference joke immediately after McKenzie Dern lost her last fight and got permabanned after a mod’s alt flamed me for it over PM.

The joke was “go home and be a family (wo)man”.

permad from the sub over that, place is a joke if you poke fun of a mods waifu.

unless you told them the context along side the joke, i dont think i would just put that together. especially since she's a fairly new mom

he looks absolutely wasted.

i followed his snap to see what he's up to, but all he's doing is partying and drinking.

the man's done.
Yeah he's 100% done unless for some bizarre reason is given a million dollars for a fight.

After Nate secured the $2 Million bag against McGregor in their rematch, he felt entitled to "money fights' too despite coming off two fat L's.

Gonna enjoy seeing Hardy getting utterly outclassed. Biggest mismatch since CM Punk vs that photographer.

I know I said Kelvin would obliterate Till and he fought pretty intelligently. But Romero and Whittaker would actually knock him the fuck out.

So fair play to Till, he’s not ducking good fights!
