Well I was watching PTI with Tony Kornheiser and Mike Wilbon yesterday 10-25-10 and they had a small segment entitled Lesnar. The mailbag question asked was "If MMA is ever going to get mainstream how can they if their heavyweight champions keep losing?" Both Tony and Mike totally dismissed it and the first thing Wilbon said was it's Barbarism total barbarism. Then Tony chimed in and said yes it is barbaric, it already is a mainstream sport and is all over tv. Then they just jumped to the next question and dismissed MMA entirely. Here is the link to the podcast on ESPN if you would like to hear it. PTI - ESPN The last episode is middle of the page on the left toolbox. easy to get. It is absolutely crazy how these guys can praise Boxing/Pacquaio/Mayweather etc yet totally dismiss MMA as barbaric. The difference in how the older generation 50+ think and the younger 20+ think is really pronounced in that segment. Someone really needs to get on PTI and debate those guys on how it is perfectly okay to stand in a ring and beat on someones head for 15 rounds or play 16 football games where you continuelly get hit in the head EVERY PLAY for 60 mins yet getting in a fight for 15 mins is barbaric. Half of those fights do not even last the 15 mins and a quarter are BJJ/Wrestling matches. BUT times are a changing. What do you think?
