this is true but we also need to consider that if you took every wmma fight that's happened in the ufc that was considered cool by everyone except lwb you could watch it all in less time than a standard feature film.

it's getting better, but we're definitely still in the phase where the most i hope for out of a typical wmma bout is 'not terrible' and it fails this expectation as often as it surpasses it.

WMMA is getting better at a decent clip but it's never going to be as good as it could or should be if you pull the rug out from under it. It's only going to get better when you keep incentivising it.

people need to chill out on this subject because a lot of really stupid poo poo is being said in defense of wmma that is actually making lwb's point stronger, and his point is not good.

It's okay to be a fan of different fighters, and you can enjoy or not enjoy WMMA. Just remember, arguing on the internet will never change anything.

This is a weird complaint, because it's true of literally everything. You think Baseball would attract the kind of freakish talent it does if A-Rod wasn't on a multi-hundred million dollar contract and was just doing it for the love of the game or whatever? Baseball is a sport so loving boring to play that even people making a fortune to play it are on amphetamines in order to pretend to be interested.

It is an absurd comparison, because I can't think of any WMMA fighters who are as bad as Phil DeFries, who has a win in the UFC, alongside several increasingly absurd losses.

most female mma fighters have a regular job since theres no minimum salary. the same thing happens in womens cycling. there are a few really talented people competing in both sports but the general level of competition is low because of a lack of money and good training prospects. which in turn limits the people with the most talent because generally you can only be about as good as the people you compete against. so a little money is necessary if you want to have high level sport

I know. This was my exact point. The level of talent in other sports is high because there's a shitload of money and fame associated with it. It's not unique to WMMA.

In more important news, RIP to Chris Weidman's weight cut, after he was seen on Embedded Vol. 3 eating french toast with maple syrup four days before the fight.

Aren't cheat meals pretty important to maintain high metabolism during a weight cut?

as long as he's on weight he can eat whatever he likes before he starts pissing and sweating out the remaining percentage. i'm sure there are intangible benefits to getting to eat french toast instead of your half a cup of spinach or whatever the gently caress johny has to eat at gunpoint.
