    Too many ifs for it to be even considered. there is really no point for the UFC to majorly invest in the sport of kickboxing.

    Sometimes I wonder if the "Most exciting combat sport" narrative that Glory is shouting, gets to the head of some in this forum.

    Ya that claim gets old. I like Kickboxing for its technical violence, but all fight sports have potential for exciting fights and shitty fights, Kickboxing included.

    That comment was a reply to MMouse. He was talking about fighters needing to speak English and have a persona. I provided examples of fighters that dont have those. Not just in boxing. In mma too.

    A certified idiot?? LOL Thanks.

    Yes and the United States has a huge Spanish speaking population so bringing up Spanish speaking fighters is a complete moot point.

    Guys like Anderson Silva didn't sell well.

    The interupting in kb isn't very good too often. Ref yells fight..tap tap..clinch...stop...wait for ref to come separate you...fight...repeat till round ends. blaablaablaa Kunlun Fight...but that's a big reason I like their rules when the ref imposes them properly. Fight the fuck out of it and don't just wait for ref to come stop and separate you all the damn time.

    Americas got a bit of everything. Including Filipinos that knew about Pacquiao before he was widely famous in the Philippines. America has people from all over. Even a fighter like GGG has kazakhstani crowds at his fights.

    He sold okay. Would of sold a lot more if he was an up and comer in this social media era. Head kicks flying around twitter. Still waiting for Pet to go viral after landing one of his smooth head kicks in Glory on some action movie type shit.

    I think comparing Pac vs May to anything is a little unfair.

    Well they seem to be thinking about promoting boxing so the notion of change is floating around.

    Who are you talking to? I'm right here. You dont need to say some in this forum as if you're throwing a hint out there and not replying to me directly.

    ANYWHERE ON THE DOME !!!

    I've seen Bruce Lee demonstrate better ground game in his acting then Conor does in real life so its a wash..

    id have to give it to Conor .. more power in the hands..

    everything else seems like a wash..

    BWAahahahwhahbawahhaha that is all

    That is a good one. Do they really not have any drama between fighters in the international kickboxing scene? The UFC drama seems forced. They try to hard to be boxing. I find it hard to take McGoat seriously. He has that tattoo on his chest. Its so obvious he wants attention.

    Did the Klitscho Bros start out in KB? How about one of them vs Cormier, or Jones, or Weidman in sanshou rules?

    near to no drama compared to other combat sports,sometimes there is people trying to sell fights but it is pretty much never over the "i am going to knock this guy out" lines
