For obvious reasons...
Is it turning you off or damaging your enjoyment of the sport?
I care about good fights. There has been an abundance of good fights lately.
But with all of the nonsense interm titles, silly gifted title shots, refusals to defend, contract disputes, colitis, etc...it must be wearing on many fans goodwill towards the org and the sport. No?
Yeah in a major way.
HW - Good, consistent.
LHW - DC only got belt because Jones popped for steroids
MID - Belt held up for year only for GSP to win then drop it, so now Whittaker suddenly labeled champ.
WEL - One of the only consistent champs gives us two of the worst title defences ever back to back. Now willing to give up title to fight GSP.
LW - Champ out for over a year with no sign of coming back. Do we just give it to Ferguson? Bad situation.
FW - Good now, but the division was a mess just a few month ago with the whole Aldo getting promoted to champ at same time Holloway/Pettis declared a interim bout. Was so weird but thankfully we may be back to normal now, for the first time in two years.
BW - Current champion doesn't want to fight in his division.
FW - Good, consistent.
WFW - Germaine gives up title to avoid Cyborg, so now Cyborg champion.
So many main events cancelled. 4 of the last 5 events for starters.
That's just the surface. Someone can write a book on how UFC collapsed in 2017. And UFC don't even care, they just want to get into boxing now.
I've just lowered my standards as to what I expect out of it nowadays.
It has been a mess for a while. Glad you're up to speed!
On the contrary, it's turning me on.
Yes, it's been a clusterfuck for some time, but it seems to have swelled to an angry red pustulate...ready to burst at any moment.
Ehhh I'm numb now....I was really turned off about a couple years ago and actually took a break after the following fighters pissed hot.. Jon Jones, Machida, Silva, Rothwell, Romero, Belfort, Barnett, JDS, (I know I'm leaving out quite a few names) eventually my love for the sport drew me back but im definitely numb and not as passionate about it as i once was
I use to watch all the pre fight shows, press conferences and everything in between that was UFC related
Back when the fertitta boys were running tings it was fun times.
Now I just watch the actual fights, usually with the sound off (Goldie Bless)
is it just me or are " is it just me " threads annoying.
no i'm not getting turned off MMA.
Who says that current mma is not entertaining is full of shit.
All the best fights ever are in the last couple of years and the level is consistently getting higher.
I spend less time watching promos and stuff like that these days but I still like watching the cards....if you can read between the lines it's not that bad....when I watch tony and Robert in my mind I'm watching the most talented in the division
ufc dying thread
Fuck you pal.
GSP Bisping was a great fight.
If you disagree I'd love to hear why...so that I can verbally rape you and teach you a thing or two.
Gillespie vs Gonzalez
Dong Hyun Kim vs Marco Polo Reyes
Gaethjie vs Johnson
Gaethjie vs Alvarez
Oliveira vs Medeiros
Try to find stuff more entertaining than this.
Idiots that shit on 2017 mma are complaining just to complain about something.
