UFC hardly a hit

Wednesday

The UFC can certainly teach boxing a thing or two when it comes to marketing; Character development, national television, I don’t know, maybe a website.

But after watching the biggest name in mixed martial arts leave himself open to a punch Floyd Mayweather only wishes he could throw – because a Mayweather opponent would never get caught like that – its hard not to come away disappointed with the “fastest growing sport” in the world.

The truth is boxing should be ashamed of itself for even being compared to a sport filled with guys who would be working for Vince McMahon if their acting wasn’t as embarrassing as their defense.

Of UFC 71’s nine fights on Saturday night, six ended in three minutes or less, including the main event which –following a minute of dancing- lasted all of one punch. Even the knockouts didn’t have that exciting wow he just got his ass whipped boxing feel.

And this form of fighting is supposed to KO boxing? It just makes no sense. After actually watching a full UFC, my opinion remains the same.

It’s just real wrestling.

With shorter, less exciting matches.

MMA has 10x the depth of boxing. Youre simply showing your ignorance of the sport. The biggest entry barrier to MMA is the complexity of the sport, especially the ground game. The new fans just dont understand. Once you understand MMA, boxing becomes ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, ill never watch it again. Boxing isnt real fighting, and boxers are not real fighters, its a game that only allows punching, which we already know isnt really fighting. Early MMA proved how lacking boxing is in a real fight. Boxers dont stand a chance against the real fighters of MMA. In a dark alley with no rules, a boxer wouldnt last 20 seconds.

Just letting you know what a moronic past that was. UFC has gotten huge without you and will continue to get bigger without you.

I think that is what is making the sport of MMA so exciting and viewer friendly. We want knockouts and we respect the fact that it can happen easily since the sport is damn near bare-knuckle. It's nowhere near wrestling.
It seems you upset anonymous. LOL! That's awesome!

People like a good fight no matter where it is. So, UFC has figured out that people want to be entertained with constant action. Big deal, they apparently have figured out a marketing plan that interests many people.
