    Co-main:
    Greg Hardy, thrown from much more known and established sport in American Football for domestic violence, lands in MMA.
    What does he do in MMA, in front of a huge audience? Blatantly breaks the rules. Shows exactly what kind of a sportsman he is. Gets praised by UFC.

    Main:
    OK, nice short fight between two champions, one beat the other one...OK. Wait, what does the president of UFC says? Ah, that was a horrible stoppage? And not even one nice word about the winner, who's supposed to be one of the best MMA fighters on the planet? Hmm OK.

    So what do we have here?
    - MMA being a sport for thugs, rejected from other sports for all the right reasons, which prove their thugishness again on a big screen;
    - Bad officiating, both from sanctioned bodies and high authorities in the organizations.

    Welcome to MMA, ESPN viewer. In case you only heard of it but never watched - this is how it looks like.
    Enjoy your stay.

    If there are rules, you cannot just say "oh they're cage fighters, they cannot follow the rules because they're too stupid"
    And bad officiating , along with org officials not giving a due to their champion, has nothing to do with it anyway

    There is no expiration to it, and it perfectly fit the moment.

    I myself, honestly , enjoy being MMA fan, but not because it's cage fighting. I enjoy it because there are so many aspects in fights, such versatility and ability to apply so many strategies and techniques...

    And I DO make money from it...but very cautiously

    You see the difference? One response was humorous and on point (mine), other was predictable and infantile (yours)

    Now I see why you get double yellow...besides offtopic flooding of course, like you do now

    this is just part of the general trend ufc has with giving zero shits about staying consistent to a set of rules or ethics. very sad to see, but it's the way it is now.

    Stop crying because you produce garbage thread after garbage thread. If you said anything worthwhile there would be more replies. Instead 90% of the posts in here are you and me going back and forth. You’re welcome for keeping this thread on the first page and not wastelanded.

    Have a good day kid :)

    That's not the same as "MMA cannot be a legit sport" or "MMA should never strive to be a legit sport"
