I find it cringe that UFC turned into a mainstream celeb hipster organization

    I haven't seen any of this hipster shit 10 years ago. There was a time when UFC was strictly exclusive for the hardcore fans and it was actual much more entertaining. Nowadays, everyone and their 14 years old sons are into UFC, fighters acting like hipsters and becoming more like a celebrity, fans following and glorifying attention seeking manwhores, UFC treating their organization like WWE, cringe marketing and all that crap about WMMA.

    It's too much for me.

    Mainstream and hipster? Aren't they opposites?

    When your promotion goes from an underground seeming thing full of grinders and turns into a mainstream, "marketable fighter" belt-fuckery farce, this is what you get

    Hipsters? What's wrong with that? They are grown men, they can wear whatever they want, they can have any haircut they want. This isn't North Korea or Saudi Arabia. They can listen to rap music (or perform it if they like), they can record youtube videos or post instagram pics of their bicpes or whatever.

    The worst of TUF noobs and the worst otaku geeks of PRIDE created a hyrid final form, legitimacy dorks, and they caused this.

    Well played. I just find it amusing when "real men" care so much about looks of other men. I mean, usually you should care about the looks of your potential partner (genetics, or simply aesthetics).

    I understand. It reminds me of the time when only me and 10 other people knew about a little film callled Star Wars. Those were glorious days. We'd debate and argue over things like Darth Vader's cloak or the Ewok's headbands long into the wee hours. It was a special club for special people. Not anymore though. It was all ruined when those filthy hipsters discovered the films and then came the casuals and now everybody thinks they're a Star Wars fan. It's just disgusting.

    That’s what I was thinking!

    Arguing that you were into something back when it was underground and cool is THE MOST hipster thing you can do.

    Casuals and pop culture intrigue are necessary evils.

    So long as the UFC doesn't go full Star Wars, and damn near intentionally alienate the entirety of its core fan base, a reasonable degree of crossover isn't such a terrible deal. Exposure. It's good to spread promotion of the martial arts as widely as possible. We need more children wanting to grow up combat capable.

    That's what hipsters are trying to convince themselves of. That they are "so different".

    Saying "I find it cringe" is about as hipster as it gets.
