This "sport" is a joke

Recommended Posts

This thing has been and continues to be a freak show. Mcgregor's assault is the latest example.  The fewer wrestlers that sign up for guaranteed brain damage the better...Long term health/success wise, being a HS coach/teacher has better prospects and you're actually doing good for the world.

It's an avenue for talented athletes to make quick money while they still have the competitive itch. I love wrestling, I love MMA, and I train in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under a 2nd degree black belt who was also a D1 NCAA qualifier at a top tier program. Not everyone is cut out to be a couch and not everyone is content to let their career end after high school/college/international wrestling. Yes, there are major risks involved but everyone who steps in the cage knows that. If they are willing to put it on the line for my entertainment, I'll continue to watch.

Tonight was just another example of the sport being a joke.  

Why?

The biggest fight of the year was a non title fight that included a guy who failed a doping test earlier that week. UFC is without question a clown show like the WWE and The Rock presenting the "BAMF" belt was just further example.
