    We were all noobs at one point and some of us might have been a little slow to catch on to certain MMA related things, for instance:
    1. I was a young kid when UFC1 happened and I had thought that the fighters were going to fight to the death. I was disappoint.
    2. I used to think Charles Oliveira's nickname, "do bronx", was always a misspelling and was actually supposed to be "da bronx".
    3. I used to think that the interlocking fish smash was some kind of Sherdog joke which described a maneuver in women's MMA when both fighters had their legs intertwined on the ground and their vaginas were coming into contact with each other. kind of like a "scissor" maneuver.
    Now that i've cleansed my soul of its ignorance, it is time for you all to confess!

    I remember watching Tito fight before I was a fan and thought that taking someone down and ground and pounding was easy and basically cheating.

    I thought reddit /r/mma would actually be a bit better than here but it's just gayer. Still retarded.

    I thought technical striking/grappling was really easy until I started training. Fighters make it look easy.

    K-1 strikers would dominate if they can keep the fight standing

    I stopped watching WWF when I was a teenager, when it became PG13. One night I stumbled upon UFC on like challenge TV or something. I watched for 5/10 mins, can't remember who was fighting, but I thought to myself my god this is boring af. I obviously knew WWF was fake but I thought this was some budget WCW or the likes.

    Anyway I didn't watch this again until a few years later I stumbled upon TUF. Sadly I was hooked and took me a while to realize this was the same show I'd watched years earlier and been so critical about <Fedor23>

    Before I joined Sherdog I didn’t realize that people actually had issues with WMMA. He’ll I didn’t even know what WMMA was. I thought it was all just MMA.

    I used to think Diego Brandao would be a good match up for Jose Aldo "because they're both MT and BJJ guys"

    I thought that UFC "no holds barred" was like WWE no hold barred matches
