    They simply don't want their own particular brand of violence associated with what they're so very afraid the limp morals having folks will try to marry with companies who are, in their opinion......violence promoting.


    What a circle, eh?

    I used to see a lot of guys sponsored by Benchmade. I love the UFC, but this is a very odd choice to me.

    Most of the "fighters" that I personally know don't like guns or knives. They don't like them because they're afraid that if they pick a fight on the street, they might be shot or stabbed.

    Same goes for knuckles, fistpacks, rocks, kubatons, beer bottles etc. They think that because they are a badass in a sanctioned ring, they are a badass on the street as well. This is simply not true.

    The quote, "God created all men, Sam Colt made them equal" comes to mind.

    I'm sure it's this kind of attitude that they're trying to distance their selves from. Not the same type of violence.

    Are these the same type guys who insist that having a huge physical advantage is *manly*, but any other kind of advantage makes a person a *punk*? Am I on the right path?

    To hell with the UFC, the only thing it has done for me is to make me aware of how defenseless I could be if I ever land on my ass and back. Since then I've been training to avoid it and deal with it more effectively if it happens. The fights get boring after seeing enough of them because not many of the fighters take really big risks or go balls to the wall. The UFC is about making money and nothing else.

    I would never pay anything for their PPV's or tickets to any of their events. The fighters are mostly a bunch of egotists who are looking for big paydays.

    I quit watching that garbage when they changed to being nothing but boxing but letting you use your feet.

    Back in the day when there were no "rounds" or "rules" and Joyce Gracie was kicking the poo out of 450 pound brutes, now that was cool. Now it sucks. I haven't watched a MMA fight in a long time, now this gives me an excuse to continue to not watch it.
