    I will occassionally watch via spike tv. Overall I've never really enjoyed watching "fight" sports. I prefer object based sports. Unfortunately I do admit it's more fun watching than straight up martial arts competitions which are usually pretty boring.

    For someone who hates violence, I certainly love violent sports...lol.
    But really, martial arts are about a philosophy as well, and I like that technical expertise wins out sometimes not just brute strength.
    But there are some great knock-outs too...

    The problem is I think UFC takes away some of the honor and philosophy that is central to defined martial arts.

    I agree - it's a sport, not a martial art... even if the practioners sometimes have an martial arts background.

    We need to go back to Roman days and have gladiators. That is why this "ultimate fighting" thing is leading to.
    Also, we need to have showcases where we throw Republicans to the lions. :razz:

    Yeah, the future could get grisly. Ever read 'The Running Man' by Stephen King? NOT THE MOVIE VERSION, the book. Interesting take on reality sprt shows, and at one time I expected American Gladiators to evolve into a sort of extreme (you could die) event. Alas, poor Nitro, Lazer, and the rest have left the TV arena...

    I think they shhould have a REAL survivor show. Drop 20 people somewhere and whomever lasts the longest wins. No food, no help. No killing each other, just survive as long as you can.

    I haven't seen the fight yet - but I heard! Holy shit, way to go Randy!
    I thoughtArlovski would kill Sylvia last time, but he acted like he didn't even want to be there..sigh.

    Hey, never to old to improve your fight skills!

    Is Ultimate Fighting plotted and choreographed like wrestling is? I have never seen it. Wrestling is more like Broadway than a sports event.
