    That was the fight for me. I was hooked. I thought MMA was pretty awful and scary before I saw that fight.

    First UFC event I saw was Brock vs. Mir 1. We were at Hooters and left before the main event. lulz

    I didn't REALLY get into it until 2009. It was a random, spur of the moment thing to start looking into MMA. I found some sites streaming matches of the guys I knew of like Tito, Brock, etc. Once I started to understand the ground game I was hooked. So I guess I don't really have an answer, lol.

    That's pretty cool.

    I can't imagine an athlete I like all of a sudden kicking ass in another sport I wasn't to aware of.

    I'd been a casual mma fan for years but after I saw fedor beating up guys bigger and fitter looking than him or copping a flogging then pulling off a crazy win somehow I started to train. Now I'm pretty much an addict checking for news everyday watching most events training most days of the week traveling to other countries to train and compete in grapple comps and things. I am addicted I don't know if there is a cure....

    The idea of putting martial arts together and see what they would do in a real fight agains other martial arts. A few years after Machida came to mma and I got even more envolved.
