    Would you agree that having no down time besides a week or two is what makes mma/ufc so great to follow? I can go to bed any day and wake up and theres a huge story breaking or a great matchup made to look into. Its also what makes it so fun to discuss. No other sport goes year round the way the ufc does. In this respect, Im surprised MMA isnt more popular. Is the continuing news something that keeps you drawn to the UFC/mma?

    For me, it's the unpredictability factor. I am a boxing fan first, but MMA is far more unpredictable. That is why you see so much shuffling among champions and constant upsets.

    EDIT: I read this as "Your sound reason why UFC/MMA is great to follow." Carry on.

    Yes, it helps but something like only 10% of the posters here follow another sport.

    I like your enthusiasm!

    I enjoy mma but the really great match ups are few or at least in current memory they are.

    As a fan its a bit hard to have a party for friends when no one really talks about the fight, its why i usually only host boxing matches or futbol and watch mma at my bar

    I wish more people were like you

    Dude I love MMA, Almost too much. I try to follow every big organization. Shit, im going to LFA tonight. For me, its the constant news that keeps it interesting. I went to nap 3 hours before ufc 213 and woke up to find out the main event had been cancelled. What other sport does that shit go on? Or when i was in vegas for 200 and jones got busted. The whole city was talking, good times.

    I only follow MMA, so glad that we have events year round. Also glad for Bellator and other promotions.

    Since 06, feels like forever ago. I was gonna mention SOCCER but I live in america so whats that? That sport just gets no love here except from high school lesbians. I do respect them though, even if its not that phyically challenging of a sport other than cardio.

    Yeah Man, I know sports dont revolve around the US. I was joking around. We are pretty set in our ways with sports. I just have a real hard time keeping interested watching soccer on TV. I used to watch it all day at my last job cause we had espn in our office. It was terribly boring but thats just my opinion. Im sure I would get beat for saying that in manchester or whatever other big soccer markets there are out there.

    Agreed. That period between the end of the NBA season and the beginning of the NFL season is painful. MMA is pretty much my only sports outlet at that point.
