    You constantly hear about boxing purists but are there MMA purists?

    Do you consider yourself an MMA purist?

    I used to brand my hotdogs with the UFC logo, so I'd say so.

    I think we need to use the term more often to distinguish between true MMA fans, the purists, who want to retain the original spirit of NHB, and the new fans who like "money fights", WWE drama and things like that.

    No more of an alcoholic who enjoys cage fighting.

    Yes, sometimes late at night I watch old fights with face stomps and cry myself to sleep.

    I need a better explanation of what "purist" means before I go pretending to be one.

    A purist is one who desires that an item remains true to its essence and free from adulterating or diluting influences.

    No, since there are still plenty of things Id like to change about MMA. Rules, judging criteria, etc.

    A purist reacts critically to any change to the way the sport is traditionally played. MMA still being very young is still working out the kinks.
