    I am closing in on 40 and I haver been following MMA since the mid 90's. I live in Denmark, so watching live shows usually means staying up till 6-7 in the morning, often alone because not many have the need to watch the fights live as I do. So many fights have given me butterflies in the stomach weeks and months before the fight takes place.

    I used to have it every time Fedor, Wanderlei, GSP(not so much in the last few years) or Anderson fought.


    But I havent really had those butterflies for a while.

    I am not sure if I have just been oversaturated with MMA since there are SO many events, and all are easy to watch. Or maybe it is the feeling that MMA has changed because it has become a million dollar sport and so many fighters are willing to play it safe and win on points. Whatever it is, I have had a hard time getting hyped. I have even started watching the fights the day after instead of in the middle of the night live. And don't get me wrong, there has been MANY great fights the last years, I just did not have the feeling of nervousnes like if I had to go in the ring myself.


    But goddamnit boys, I have had that feeling since Jones vs. Cormier was announced.

    I am looking more forward to this fight then I did to Christmas, or New Years Eve.
    Forget about personalities and who said what said. These are two of the greatest fighters that have ever lived, both undefeated(Jones loss is as real as Fedors loss to Kohsaka), both fighters fired up with what i belive is genuine dislike for each other, which usually adds to the fun.

    I do not know who will win but damn this is going to be good.

    I missed this feeling.

    You're 40 and you're posting gifs of Batman and Edge? Let me guess, by Denmark you mean your moms basement, right?

    But 4real, I know what you're talking about.

    Great post, I understand completely.

    This is the most exciting match up we've had in quite some time.

    Biggest fight in the last few years for me. Two undefeated, amazing fights who hate each other. It's just great.

    Anderson-Weidman I is the only one that came close for me in the last few years. I felt strongly that Weidman would beat Anderson, and all the hate Anderson fans had for Chris made the fight really intense leading up.

    the publicity team went all out on this one...Very well scripted,,,,the music in the commercials, the editing...After watching the pre fight material it triggers lots of impulses...

    Forget about that. If you know anything about MMA and fight sport, look at what these 2 masters of fighting bring to the table. They are both undefeated and have fought great competition, usually making them look like amateurs. Both great wrestlers, both exciting strikers, both have killer instinct.

    DC and Jones are without a doubt 2 of the best fighters that have ever lived. And we get to see which one of them is the greatest. If you can't get excited about this, what will...Obama vs Putin bare knuckle fist fight on the white house lawn with the rematch happening in the catacombs of Kreml? Well actually that would be amazing, but I hope you get my point.

    I have kind of the same feeling, it's that feeling of waiting for fights like Fedor vs. CC, GSP vs. BJ Penn 2 and AS vs. Weidman 1-2. Two excellent fighters fighting for the title, with the add of a genuine mutual hatred toward each other, the fight being close to 50/50 and we have no idea at all what is going to happen when both of them are in there and the octagon door shuts, I can't wait for January 3rd.

    This has to be one of the biggest fights of the last decade, if not the biggest. The LHW GOAT, in his prime, versus an undefeated heavyweight, AND, for added sauce, they both appear to genuinely hate each other and threaten to spit on, and/or, kill the other, literally.
