Match = Sport

Fight = No rules, could be one vs one or one vs. multiple, alcohol usually is involved.

You know that saying: "Can't see the forest for the trees"?

The match is the "trees" while the fight is the "forest"

The people that need to see the art in MMA the most are the "just-bleed" diehard fans who are convinced it should be more like a fight, and less of a sport.

I meant the goal is to make it fan friendly, like the pre-fight soap shows. Create an image that they are regular dudes who fight, that it's not barbaric violence like in the old days. Not to argue which fan base needs to see what to be "educated".
