    I just started watching it again for the first time since like 2002 and decided to buy tickets, just wondering how the shows are.
    I have a question, why the mixed thread? Is it because they are both on PPV?

    On the one hand, you have a legitimate form of competitive fighting. On the other, you have a soap opera of primarily men with speedo's on.

    On the topic of MMA, there have been quite a few good fights since Rampage/Evans and there are some very entertaining fighters to follow. Jon Jones is crazy entertaining. The heavyweight division was a little boring for a while, but the Overeem title bout with Jr Dos Santos that is on the horizon should be a good one.

    What Dana White needs to do for the fans is get Anderson Silva and JPP in the octagon together. PPV gold.

    They are pretty much all the same. Just about any WWE hold/take down and just about any MMA hold/take down is originated from REAL mat wrestling (which I did did...mat rat, highschool and for a period in college)...whether the style is freestyle, Greco-Roman or judo.


    Just for good measure!

    How was Monday Night Raw SCM?
    Hating the Yankees like it's a religion since 94'

    Yes, but one is legit competition, the other is scripted. I think similarity of moves goes out the window when you have that kind disparity in the outcome of a match.

    I liked it, I dont think Id go again though.

    The whole "live" aspect of it actually sucks. There is a lot of down time during commercial breaks and if you blink, its over.

    I've been watching Raw the past few weeks. There's some pretty good stuff going on, but I'm still not as into it as I was when WCW was around.

    I've tried watching TNA a few times, but it's absolute garbage.

    I saw the fight live, yikes. Silva definitely taking a step down in UFC. He used to be untouchable along with Lyoto Machida.

    Fedor fans masturbating at the thought of using Silva's consecutive losses as proof of their "FEDOR WAS THE BEST EVAH" campaign. SMH.
    We miss you Mike.

    I'd like to grapple with Ronda Rousey - if you know what I mean.
    Priorities:
    1. Yankees lose
    2. Red Sox win

    CM Punk has signed on with UFC.

    He is no Brock Lesnar, I think he is going to get destroyed.
