Why can't it be both??

I (along with Dana and Co.,) however, believe fighters who manipulate the rules to "control" a match and have no intention of "fighting" have no place in the sport. Some people slam Dana for manipulating the sport for "entertainment" (in the negative connotation associated with that word by the WWE) by keeping that out of the sport. I applaud him for keeping the "spirit" of the sport alive by not allowing the sport to be ruined in that way.

I like it for both reasons. I love fights that aren't as technical but are explosive where both fighters are putting on a show, but I can also appreciate the fights where the fighters are picking their shots and fighting more with their brains than turning it into a brawl. I really dislike "lay and pray" fights though... where one guy just grinds their opponent on the cage and gets a takedown in the last minute, or just gets top position and wastes time. Boring snooze fests.

I watch all sport for entertainment.

I prefer entertaining sports matches to non entertaining sports matches.

I prefer more entertaining sports teams to less entertaining sports teams.

I would rather watch a rugby side that played with a dynamic style and was ranked number 5 in the world to a team that played with a conservative style that was ranked number 2 in the world.

Its all entertainment and its all sport.
