    Fucking lol at this nonsense.

    The “beautiful game sport” where the fans constantly riot and beat the shit out of each other? Must be those damned American violence fans at all the games.

    I completely agree that MMA is a superior sport to soccer. American Gridiron Football is better than any sport though.

    Soccer is the greatest sport no doubt but I have been watching a lot more NFL the last few years. A lot of people I speak to have one gripe with the NFL and it puts them off...the number of breaks in play. A game that consists of 4 quarters at 15 mins each can last up to 3 hrs.

    Did you even read the post you quoted....? I responded to someone saying Soccer isnt popular with Americans because their culture wants to see violence. Yet its the Soccer fans rioting and beating the shit out of each other world wide lol.

    Love both. There are good/shitty soccer games and good/shitty MMA cards. At the end of the day they scratch completely different itches. You arent getting the violence and split second game ending moments (ie flash KOs etc) in soccer, but you arent getting the scale, teamwork, storied rivalries, crazy fanbases, fantastical goals etc in MMA.

    The only itch UFC "scratches" is the ghey itch.

    I'm speaking for everyone when I say Bernard Hopkins had it right when he compared UFC to ghey pornography.
