Quoted for Truth! We need more fighters that are in the sport because they want to compete against the best, be the best, and be a true fighter.

So many seem to fight because they "had a rough past" or they "felt this was the best way to make a living".

I will always support guys who are good for the sport and who love to fight. Chuck is one of those guys.

Well past his prime, definitely wasn't given the best competition when he was the poster boy for the UFC because they were growing and refused to acknowledge other orgs that could "hurt" their ascension, but damn! That guy flat LOVES the sport and is one of the best people outside of the ring, in regards to the fans, and I will always respect that.

Looking forward to Saturday night's card, though I will be watching it after driving for the better part of 11 hours.

Default Ya really..

These guys are modern day gladiators. When I started watching UFC, UFC 12 was the last match. I found all those from UFC 1 to date. I never buy the PPV, I wait untill it comes out on regular TV. When if first strarted it was very violent, really great stuff. Mark Coleman, Randy C., S. Fisher, Tito O. and the new fighters really have to train hard. You gotta admire those guys.
I don't know how some of them work full time and train and have time for family.

I love MMA training for what it is, and it's a good workout, but...............

Better tap out than getting a bone broke,joint seperated,etc....That's not tough or manly, that's STUPID. Not tapping means less time to train, or as you say.........excercise.

Ever get the feeling someone doesn't take kindly to your comments?

Hardy gets out and gets up just too easy ( unless you are an approved GSP blanket ).

Take a mulligan on this one?

Hahaha... Its all about mindset. When training for a force on force encounter you're training to stop the threat and engage the "enemy/target" etc with "deadly force". Right? Now how can you do that with a tap out mindset? Not every MMA guy has a problem like this, but personally I've come across some MMA tough guys with this mindset of making the BG submit. My thoughts, Good Luck With that! Just from going back an forth with you here I'd say you don't have that problem.
on the street level there's no referee etc, just you and whatever threat it is you're facing.

Agreed. Basically, that kind of training can breed poor self defense, a sport mind-set. Judo started doing that for me after a couple of years.
