    why is UFC guy

    almost always a *********?

    my friend was a pro boxer and Id go to a lot of his fights. You didnt have every guy in the crowd thinking he was a pro boxer.

    UFC crowds..every other dudes has an Affliction shirt, eats four pounds of Creatine every day, finished third in his district in wrassling and thinks hes a tough guy.

    very tired.

    I blame the high perentage of wrassling fans who like MMA


    I'm living the dream.

    I like MMA. I'm pretty sure James Taylor could kick my ***.

    I'm a UFC fan and we're not all like that. I get what you mean though...I'll be at 3bag watching the fight tonight and there will be plenty of Affliction wearing tough guy wannabe meatheads.

    The sport is still growing. So with as small as it still is, you're seeing the hard core fans. Most other sports have the same thing esp football. See Raider Fan!!!!

    Re: why is UFC guy

    I am going to say I use to wear Affliction shirts, when I was in college 4 years ago, but never once thought I was a UFC fighter. I understand what you are saying, but I agree in that this is still a growing sport and once the "fighters" get flooded by the average Joe you will notice it less and less.

    Also, a little off the subject, but are there any bars on Court Ave downtown Des Moines that shows the fights.

    I'll forever enjoy "The Sweet Science" of boxing over MMA. I love that people dress up and look good going to big prize fights. You see tuxedo's, suits, dresses, etc. I went to an MMA fight in Omaha and it was exactly how you stated...Affliction shirts and meat-heads. I hate blanketing people with a stereotype like that but it's exactly how I saw it too.

    hahaha I am both a Raider fan and a UFC and while I am not a violent person whatsoever, I would agree the majority of these fan bases are absolutely ridiculous. I have never been to a Raider game without seeing a fight break out.

    Re: why is UFC guy

    The best thing about the affliction shirts is they are always 2 size to small. I laugh at everyone of them to their face. If they ever say anything, just tell them you saw a funny shirt. None of them have gotten it yet. Beware though, they usually have a hair trigger temper. So unless your ready to take a punch, it's best not to engage them. Especially if they have numbers.

    Re: why is UFC guy

    The thing about UFC guy is that a lot of them were wrestlers or just fancy themselves as ultra-tough guys. Therefore they think they could be just as good as the guys in the ring, when in reality, most of them can't take a punch.

    Me, I'm a boxing fan. And while I was on the boxing club at ISU for my last semester, I have no delusions that I could last more than 10 seconds in the ring with any fighter.

    Re: why is UFC guy

    Even the guys that fight at high level get sick of it. I was at a 7-7-07 wedding, a bunch of current and former UFC guys were there (used to bounce with them in QC). The night before the wedding we had a big kegger and I ran into Justin Eilers. I thought it was him, but the cyclone tat on his calf gave it away to me, I went up and asked if he was who I thought he was and he completely tried to diss me till he realized that I wanted to talk ISU football. After that, we talked and drank for a couple hours.

    Here's my evidence.

    Re: why is UFC guy

    I really don't know that UFC/MMA can even be considered a growing sport anymore. It was a growing sport, but has hit a plateau as far as pay-per-view and merchandise sales go.

    It has a firmly entrenched niche audience that will never go away, but like any other niche sport, requires star power, which I think UFC/MMA can say it has right now, especially in the heavyweight division, which is why boxing has suffered.

    Back to the original point at hand, I've always enjoyed boxing and while I never wrestled, I certainly respect the grind. Because of that, I had a natural draw toward UFC/MMA, but UFC guy really turned me off early in my fanhood, I haven't really been able to get into the scene strictly because in my mind, I associated liking that sport with being a colossal d-bag.

    I'm a UFC fan... and although I'd like to think I could take out James Taylor, I've never been in a fight in my life.
