Any other MMA fans? I see lots of football, F1, rugby fans etc; but I'm yet to come across many people that are into MMA.

Any takers? ;)

You may need to explain exactly what is it?

Martial Arts - I think of Judo or Karate - it must be something similar

Yes mate,

I know its an old post. Never mind lol
I've been into MMA for about 15 - 16 years now since the days of Ken Shamrock and Royce Gracie. I even managed to get the wife into it after making her sit through St Pierre jabbing his way through 5 rounds to beat Koscheck.

Its a shame we're going away on Sunday because the UFC is in Nottingham next Saturday

Slightly deviating from the subject but I was watching wrestling with my youngest and then I got onto the subject of wrestling in the 70s - have a look!!!



He thought it was hilarious

Hands up those that remember watching it on World of Sport on a Saturday afternoon?

ME! ME! ME!

I used to watch the old wrestling wasn't big daddy's name shirley or something?

I seem to remember he retired after landing on another wrestler belly flop style badly and blamed himself for him dying.

I'm showing my age now (and memory for odd facts :unsure: ) but I was only a young lad when I watched this honest!!!

I was a mad MMA fan but recently found it getting boring because of the amount of events on the box now a days. Still love watching muay thai and the K1 events though. Buakaws the man

I would love to join in with this thread but you guys appear to be speaking in a different language :whistle:

Ok who can explain Mixed Martial Arts to me in simple terms but so I also understand exactly what muay thai (is it not a green curry), K1 and wing chun are.


enquiring minds would like to know.

Gooner :cheer:
