    While commentating on Max Griffin fight, after his opponent's ear got thorn, Anik said " what we do is dangerous " . "We" ? But what gets me is a UFC commentator making a statement that MMA is dangerous, certainly extra fuel for those that want the sport abolished. But, yeah, we are all aware that MMA can be dangerous.

    If it's dangerous, maybe you should buckle up!

    The danger is what makes it captivating. Shooting balls through a hoop or scoring beautiful goals are nice and all, but the danger in combat sports is... Something else.

    Oh shut up.

    1. No one wants to abolish the sport anymore.
    2. When people DID want to abolish the sport, the UFC made the brutality of the sport the backbone of its marketing.
    3. I'm sure Anik didn't mean anything by that "we".
    4. MMA is obviously hazardous to the health of the competitors.

    Agreed

    He is NOT a fighter and needs to check himself.

    He is appropriating the fighters' blood sweat and tears to make himself more badass

    Oh, some goofball telling me to shut up makes me rethink my posts. FYI, the UFC did not market the brutality of the sport, it just modified the rules so that it could be more acceptable to the main stream.

    Anik is certainly no one to get frustrated about. My point was that in general UFC tries to downplay injuries, whereas this guy emphasizes them.
    I remember when UFC got upset at Dan Hardy ( who was a good fighter ) when he publicly berated Herb Dean for not stopping a fight sooner. Anyone notice how Her started stopping fights a tad quicker, after that?

    How is it so dangerous to sit where he is sitting ?
    Is the fighter going to crash through the cage at him ?

    I'm sorry, but are you really bored. ....????
    Or analyze everything.
    It's a figure of speech, doing a commentating job. Nothing more nothing less.
    Maybe try and watch the fights instead of making nothing outta NOTHING.
