As MMA fans and grapplers, we all hear things and opinions from uneducated people about the sport and grappling. My question is which of these things do you guys find most annoying? 1. When people call the UFC a sport. We've all met these guys. These are usually the guys wearing Tapout or Affliction(Not always, I don't want to group fight gear wearing ppl into this group I know theres ppl who wear Tapout who arent assholes), the guys who call themselves MMA fans but they only watch the UFC, or havent ever heard of Strikeforce, the WEC, Bellator, DREAM, or Pride. They say things like "UFC is so awesome", "My buddy trains UFC". 2. When people who have never grappled say that BJJ is "gay" or for "homos". Usually the tough guys, who don't train, and only watch MMA for stand up fights. They don't apprieciate grappling, or for whatever reason have to bash BJJ. 3. People who still call MMA "human cockfighting". I run into these people alot. I'm 16 years old, and of all my friends and their parents, I'm the only one who watches MMA. It's the parents of my friends who cannot stand to see me watching MMA. Whenever they come by and see me watchung UFc Unleashed or viewing fights on MMA-core, they always have a negative comment about how the sport should be banned in all states. They always say "Oh, this is that sport where you can do anything" or words to that affect. They'll say "These guys are animals" For me, it's #3, because I'm 16, and it just amazes me the adults I run into do not have a general idea of what MMA REALLY is. it's 2010, not 1993 anymore. Theres rules, regulations, athletic commisions over seeing everything, refs, and big companies sponsoring the athletes, they're not animals.
