Mixed martial arts, predominantly associated with the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), is growing at a rapid pace. The company was bought for a mind blowing, candy ass whooping 4.2 billion US dollars recently, wooo. That’s freaking awesome considering the fact that the UFC was bought for just 2 million US dollars by the Fertitta brothers in 2001.
Okay, let me stop, UFC alone is not MMA. MMA in itself is an art and UFC has the best artists who portray the art. UFC is like the super bowl, the mecca of mixed martial arts.
BUT JUST WHY? WHY DO TWO PEOPLE TRYING TO TAKE EACH OTHERS HEAD OFF CONSUME ME SOO GODAMNNN MUCH??
Let me at the very beginning state that the Natural Born Killer Carlos Condit is my favourite fighter. Initially, when I started watching his fights I wondered as to why such a handsome looking man would want to get his face busted open instead of trying to go model for some fashion agency. As I started reading on net I understood the sport of mixed martial arts, its origins, the various styles, the larger-than-life characters etc etcc etc
AND THEN I WAS HOOKED to the UFC and later on to Bellator, to a lesser extent since majority are exports of UFC. (Lets see where James The Strabanimal Gallagher goes from the hype) I am not saying that I understand all styles and such but the spectacle of MMA is mesmerizing.
4 REASONS WHY I FREAKING LOVE MMA
It’s not the fight, fight is epic, not always, but yes fights are good. But what’s better are the drama during the weigh-ins. The build up. The trash talk. The confidence coming of 3 loses and saying that ‘I will take his head off’. The shock of getting knocked clean being a 5 to 1 favourite. That’s what is EPIC. The build-up to the fight is what gets hooked in the mind. The one who just watches fights, the casual fan ends up watching just Conor The Notorious/Mystic Mac McGregor and one who is hard-core fans wait for epic build ups like Derrick The Black Beast Lewis vs Travis ‘Hapa Ronda Rouseys boyfriend’ Browne.
The emotions in the sport is unprecedented. From seeing the cockiest mofo Conor crying after winning, to Benson Henderson proposing his fiancée in the cage, to Michael Bisping finalyyyyy^10000 winning the UFC belt, to Michael Venom Page throwing a Poke ball, to super-hero-kicker Fabricio Werdum, to head movement head movement head movement no-no-no, the emotions in the sport is unprecedented, unlike any other sport on planet earth. The fighters experience the highest of the highs and lowest of the lows and we as hard-core audiences experience the same along with our favourite fighters.
Dana White, president of UFC, is a character in his own ways. Those cursing; them verbals with ex UFC stars; Dana White Vs Ariel Helwani. Dana is a character who is as mesmerizing and important to them pre fight build ups.
The time of the matches are a bonus with a maximum of 15 minutes or 25 minutes for a championship fights. The fights could end in a blinker or could drag for 25 longggggg minutes like that of Mr Daniel Cormiers, Sorry Daniel, and Do NOT BOX with RUMBLE JOHNSON, please. Saying so the anticipation is always there and there ain’t no better thriller script.
OH yeah baby, this is my first blog post and I will writing on Mma, hmm UFC, cos its amazing.
ALl that I post and write is solely my opinion and understanding and I do not intend to hurt anyone’s feelings or teach anyone MMA.
I bloody love MMA and I need am outlet to express myself and my views and hence I believe this is my platform.
