Why are a lot of MMA fans right wing?

    I've noticed that the MMA fanbase tends to be right leaning from what I see on Sherdog and Twitter, why is this? Why aren't there more liberals and left wing people who are fans of MMA? Also how do we attracts more left wing fans into the support? Would having more LGBT fighters perhaps attract more left leaning fans?

    This is a serious thread. Please keep discussions civil.

    Also "right-wing" doesn't mean the same thing as "right-leaning".
    Also also, you are probably 12.

    Maybe because a lot of them are grown-ups.

    Because most mma fans are idiots. I mean, they watch people punch each other for entertainment.

    How is this wrong? A lot of left wing people view the ring girls as demeaning to women, maybe having ring boys will change that perception. Elias Thedorou has been pushing boundaries on this.

    Because it was originally marketed as a blood sport and rednecks like Buzz cuts n shit like Chuck Liddell.

    But this isn't 15 years ago and I don't think they are right wing nowadays. There's all sorts. I think it's a misconception.

    It’s a known fact most mma fans are white kids who are pro white.

    Just look at the ufc crowds they’ll cheer for the Russian khabib over the American tony just because khabib is white and tony is of Mexican descent.

    Sad but that’s how it’s been for a long time but they’ll deny it all the way.

    Can a mod move this to the war room for like 45 minutes instead of the dump immediately? Just for laughs.

    Majority Mma fans are grownups.

    Majority sherdog users are teens.

    We don't.
    Left wing people are weak. They don't like fighting and never will.

    MMA is a sport for real men. Real men are right wing.

    They are hypocrites. Same people ranting about "dem libs" but also complaining about fighter pay and rooting for the UFC to fail.

    Because most of them are dumbasses.

    Just like anyone who identifies with either party.

    Fact of the matter is, MMA appeals largely to white males, and specifically the same subset of white male Americans as right wing American politics; the uneducated and the poor.

    Obviously, MMA appeals to a lot of people who don't fit that criteria, but speaking generally you're going to find a lot of bitter, resentful, white male "victims" among the MMA fandom - think Trump without the money.
