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.
