Absolutely everyone knows that Combined Martial Arts (MMA) is a single of, if not the swiftest growing sport in the planet. Everyone has at least herd of the Ultimate Preventing Championship (UFC), one of the troubles some MMA followers have is that a vast majority of the people that view the UFC have only herd of the UFC and have no thought about other origination’s or fighters not in the UFC. Some would say that UFC supporters are not true MMA fans. Other folks would say that the UFC is the Mecca of the activity and why observe something less than the ideal?
The issue or argument that will come from this is, are UFC fans real MMA enthusiasts? You could reply this on either side. The initial side is sure UFC supporters are true MMA supporters. Individuals describe the UFC as the tremendous bowl of the activity. The greatest of the best of the sport, The NFL of MMA. Compared to American football, if you view the NFL and not Semi professional leagues or arena soccer you are nonetheless a football fan. So you do not want to look at other origination’s of MMA if you appreciate that 1 (the UFC) which is all you need to have. So if you seem at MMA the activity like soccer the activity and fighters as teams, the origination’s are leagues. Then of course you could argue that UFC supporters are in fact MMA fans.
On the other side of the argument you could say no, UFC fans are not MMA supporters, they are merely UFC supporters. You could say that just because everyone understands about the UFC doesn’t make them the greatest. There are fighters in other origination’s that are just as great as the fighters in the UFC. The only thing that separates the UFC from the other origination’s is the truth that they are properly recognized. They have the advertising and marking that was essential to get them out there and witnessed.
I say every person is correct, very first things 1st, don’t get rid of the messenger, but if the UFC is the biggest identify out there, then it really is not the UFC fault. There are too several origination’s and fighters to preserve track of. To say that there is somebody out there that is aware each fighter and every single origination and if you never know that then you are not a admirer, then I never feel any individual is a admirer. Even so, if you only comply with one particular origination’s, then you are marketing oneself short in the activity all round. I believe a supporter of MMA understands about a lot more than a single origination and far more than one particular team of fighters.
In my impression to solution the query at hand you need to have to inquire a single straightforward concern. Is the UFC the only origination you stick to? If no, then I say you are a MMA supporter, if yes then I say you are just a UFC fan. I also say to you, if you even have to inquire your self this query, you already know the answer.
Ahead of I start off my checklist of best five fights I just want to say that I could have set any of these fights at amount one. All of these fights were fascinating and introduced something to the desk which is why they became instant classics.
five. Diego Sanchez vs. Clay Guida- I am glad I received to view this combat reside on the Ultimate Fighter nine period finale simply because it was a thriller. The instant the combat commenced these two fighters met at the centre of the ring throwing bombs. I am surprised that this fight lasted all three rounds due to the fact these men had been landing vicious blows. Clay was absolutely obtaining out punched but it was impressive to see just how strong his jaw was. At some point in the 2nd or 3rd spherical Sanchez landed a wonderful head kick that I considered would for certain stop the combat but Guida kept coming. This is a need to see combat and possible battle of the 12 months award winner.
4. George St. Pierre vs. 해외축구중계 – This is one particular of the greatest upsets in UFC heritage. George St. Pierre had been the most dominant welterweight in the UFC for a extended time and no one particular imagined he would lose anytime shortly specifically to Matt Serra who has been in the UFC for a whilst but has not achieved significantly. When he obtained a title shot he did not let it go to waste. Serra caught St. Pierre with some challenging punches and the referee was pressured to stop the battle.
three. Tim Sylvia vs. Randy Couture UFC 68- The 44 12 months outdated Randy Couture experienced been retired for above a year but made the decision to come back to the heavyweight division due to the fact he did not consider it was really competitive. The six foot 8 Tim Sylvia had no concept what he was in for when he stepped in the octagon. Randy dominated the a lot greater Sylvia for all 3 rounds knocking him down two times for the duration of the struggle. It was a unanimous choice and Randy was winner yet again.
