    This is my first post, I have been reading both the UFC discussion and Mayberry for a while.

    Have you guys gotten or almost gotten into a fight in the street as adults?

    Me personally, I began training Muay-Thai for self defense at 16 years old, but it has gone unused in that sense because I have not even been close to getting in a fight since before I started training. I still do it because I enjoy sparring and learning techniques and I have been blessed to be coached by two of the best.

    I am twenty-two years old and I do drink socially, going out to bars with my friends in South Florida, but to tell you the truth I do not see a whole lot of people fighting, only once in a blue moon.

    Right now I am visiting Texas and I have seen bar fights like nobody's business. A local guy told me its part of the culture in this town, even amongst the educated adults. This boggles my mind, I have not seen anything like it before. To top it off, these guys don't really fight, they are one-hitter quitters who just like to try and get in the first big shot and do nothing once they are in a bad spot or getting tagged.

    Why do adults behave like this? Is this the case where you live? FWI, I am in no way dissing Texas, I am actually planning on moving here in the future for job related opportunities.

    The reason I ask you guys is because presumably you have a similar perception to my own in regards to fighting, since we follow it as a sport.

    Lmao, 2-0, both in middle-school, and I tried to avoid both. One guy actually sucker punched me.

    I once took Rickson down but he said it didn't count so I'm 0-1.

    3-8 or so lol. I actually won all my fights, but I tended to get jumped in on. Considering I'd be the one beat up I count those ad losses. 0-0-0 as an adult. Come at me bro

    I'm assuming he said it was because he didn't know the rules.

    I'm 35. Last fight was when I was 22 and it was in a bar parking lot.

    If you don't go to bars then the probability of getting in a fight decreases immensely. The chances of getting randomly attacked as an adult male in the U.S. have got to be up there with getting struck by lightening. It's so incredibly easy to avoid a fight if you are a normal person minding his own business.

    I go to bar's a few times a month, but at least where I live in Florida, I have never been in remote danger of getting in a bar fight. lol.

    I see what you mean though. It probably helps I don't go to clubs.

    Obviously it depends on the area like you said, Texas vs. Florida but regardless, bars in general are the best place to find a street fight.

    99% of street fights in SD are due to some asshole marines.

    I've never been in a real street fight as an adult. Last time I got in a fight was my senior year of HS. Some kid spit on me so I punched him in the head, then it got broken up.

    I just find it bizarre that in any part of the US, educated, white-collar adults find bar fights both amusing and acceptable. I have heard some stories about people who work in the upper-echelon of the university who have all gotten into fights somewhat recently. Like are you serious? lol.

    Saw this gem yesterday. Cracked me up. Just avoid this guy and you'll be fine:



    Then again, I wonder how many sherdoggers are this guy?

    Last street fight I was in was 2005. I got jumped buy a guy and his friends who I fought a year beforehand. I was 24 at the time, and them in their early 30's.

    He was a local tough guy who was going to beat up my friend at the bar because his GF was flirting with him. I tried to diffuse the situation and got into a big bar brawl. Wasn't looking for trouble.

    He never let it go that i got the best of him and was looking for me ever since. You learn who your friends are quick when the shit hits the fan.

    Other than that yeah, there was always fights at my local bars. All the Americans came over since our legal drinking age is 19 and it was a hostile place.

    One guy from Nova Scotia who a buddy met in University came to visit with his girlfriend. Guy was no push over and in the same night his gf got stomped on the dance floor, and he got rape choked buy another local trouble maker in front of the pool hall. The next day he said he never seen such a fucked up place. lol

    (havent lived there since 2007)

    I bounced for a long time (in Toronto), so most of mine were gaining control and removing problems. I've been in a few dust ups though.
