    UG is probably better but you stick around here it proves you have thick skin.

    Chael is an Alt Right provocateur, very much like Milo Yianoppolous. So there's that.

    With regards to interesting discussion, i personally spend most of my time in the technique forums. Great folks in the f12 and f11.

    With regards to funposting, Heem is real shit.

    If it wasn't for the routine of adding to my post count, I'd be gone.

    Very little left on this forum to enjoy.

    I never liked underground. Never used it. It isn’t layed out very well and everything just seems a mess / lumped together.
    Sherdog is the number one and Chael knows it the dick head.

    r/MMA is the worst, It's like the 9gag version of MMA, a bunch of autistic depressed neckbeards who constantly spout memes and act like they are an expert even though they've only been watching it recently. Also they suck off any fighter that posts there and the mods ban anyone who makes a remark about the appearance of a female fighter

    Years ago when I first heard about it I took one look and said, "Fuck this." It really is ugly and outdated, or at least it was then.

    Reddit is not much better.

    When you sweep those two aside, but else is left other than Sherdog.

    Junkie's forum was kinda decent at one time, but the last I looked it was a graveyard. Not sure if it even still exists anymore.

    Sherdog is the most popular, and if you skip by the idiot posts, the most knowledgeable, and the one that the most fighters and reporters go by.

    yes, sherdog is great. people complain about shitty posters but you can easily block them with the ignore function. UG has a horrendous layout and r/mma, I just don't visit. also some circlejerk and lots of posts with single gifs. also way more liberals, since its reddit

    Sherdog is one of the better sites overall if you know how to navigate it properly. The only other message board I used was IMDB and they got rid of that. You wanna talk about toxic posters? IMDB had some of the biggest assholes on the internet. This place is tame compared to some of the shit there. I remember getting into an argument with a soccer mom over “the Cape”.

    I don't find tapology to be bad. I feel like the fight records page is awkward, can't explain why. sherdog fight finder seems more natural but tapology has way more info. also has great rankings, you can check a lot of stuff there. I don't post there but I always check fight records there and to see future events who is fighting who and their records

    Sherdog is a cesspool, but it's definitely the most popular mma site and it isn't close.

    For a lot of long time members it's the subforums. With just the heavies I would have left many years ago.

    Yeah all those other great great better forums are gone now because they were the best and had the best members .. the shittist forum with the shittist members (sherdog) is still here suprise suprise! Who would have thought that?

    Oh yeah and you didn't sign up straight away because the other forums were so much better .. but you were here from the start though .. in fact you were here at the beginning of time .. in fact you are God .. all praise kumason the mma God the just bleed warrior who has seen mma forums crumble into dust before his very omnipresent eyes.

    I believe that, I stumbled across quality threads with the search function.

    I think I'm just burned out on forums right now, plus MMA isn't wildly exciting. I've limited myself to checking my notifications and shitting out plus ones on the Heavies while doing stuff on different tabs, I haven't put in the effort.

    why do you feel the need to add to your post count?

    All the fighters that got me into watching mma are old and broken down now. And the legitimacy has taken such a heavy hit. Used to be a lot more merit based with the odd freakshow or money fight. Now the freakshow is becoming the main attraction, with contendership fights and title defenses happening whenever it doesn't get in the way of the circus. I probably spend like 90% of my time in the Berry, and the rest here until I get annoyed at trying to converse with retarded people.
