    We can add boxing and the fighting buisness in general i guess, but name me a sport where fighters are going trough A LOT like our gladiators?
    Training, fear, doubt, critics, wars, competition,loneliness, being the subject of a brutal knock out, in the case of mma not that much of money, short career for a lot ,Etc...

    Its more than a sport, they always challenging themself.

    Sometimes im putting myself in their shoes, and im asking if i could everyday train against monsters who btw have the same goal. Its like fighting for few seats.
    They have that passion, you really have to love that, in other sports you can Rest on your laurels like kyrgios in tennis.
    But in mma? Hell no, you navigate in deep water with full of sharks.

    (Or at least i just see one name its gegard moussasi lol, but im sure he train hard so its just his "cocky" look when he fight, like he just get off his bed and accepted a brawl)

    Formula one. More dangerous, more demanding and filled with A-level athletes who get paid millions.

    No I think its a sport, Im pretty certain they are performing for our entertainment not performing brain surgery.

    If I invented a sport today where people throw themselves down hills inside rubber tires and people got to live doing it professionally, I could have a company with 300+ professional athletes one day. Probably training to be able to take those beatings every day, and then getting wrecked every 3 months or so.

    Or like with weird fetish porn, so long as the money is, for some reason there to be paid up there's going to be girls out there standing in a line to do it.

    All the hopefuls in MMA today don't really have that heart for it imo, same reason why they do steroids. I'm sure it's a fun exhilarating journey, but it's way too fucked up the sacrifices you have to make. Everyone's looking to cash out like McGregor/Diaz'. That's why growing the sport is also detrimental to it, because we're not gonna get the Fedors/Silvas this way but Paige Van Zants and Miesha Tates instead.
