    Hey fellow forum goers. Your assistance is needed.

    So I met this chick the other day. Turns out she's somewhat interested in MMA, and I promptly fell in love with her (jk...but for realz). Anyway, she's asked me to put together a bunch of fights for her to watch so she get into it more. So. Some input on fights to get her introduced to MMA and show her some great knockouts, submissions, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

    Also. She said she's really interested in Japanese MMA so yeah, let's get some of that in there.

    She's not really interested, she's humouring you. Schoolboy error.

    She doesn't care about MMA, she's just saying that because she's interested in you.

    do what i did. on a first date take her to Hooters to watch a PPV. buy the bigger beers (because the cost per oz is cheaper when you buy the 22oz than the 16oz) and watch the waitresses do YMCA out of the corner of your eyes.

    of course, when there is no second date, don't blame me.

    Considering she's the one that mentioned her interest in MMA in conversation without any prompting from me, maybe she's actually not turned off by the idea of sweating dudes murdering each other. Or maybe you're right. Either way, I'm always down to show MMA to ones who haven't had too much exposure to it.

    How could you forget Mir vs Big Nog 2 under your submission category?

    You must have brought it up for her to know surely? Anyhow, give the gal some Genki if anything, she can at least appreciate the entrance even if she doesn't dig the fight. I'm not sure big ko's and limb snapping are what she'd be into, and if she is that's straight-up weird =] It's good that she's pretending to be interested anyway.

    Maybe your tapout shirt or brock key chain gave it away.

    put on Soa Paleilei vs Eddie Sanchez and make a move during the long asss boring fight. Thats what she really wants. An excuse to spend time with you. Dont be a pussy.

    DEFINITELY DON'T just send her a list. Invite her over to watch that shit with you.
