    Default NT Fight Fans

    There is no sport more physically demanding nor any contest even with such strategic and tactical depth as mixed martial arts.

    If you're a fan, let it be known.

    If you're not yet a fan, please share your naive impressions of this, the pinnacle of human effort.

    I'm not an NT, but I do enjoy watching the occasional MMA fight. It's incredibly interesting to me how much preparation and tactics are involved. If people just get over the violence aspect of it, it's like watching a crazy ass real time chess match.

    Also, UFC 116 Lesnar v. Carwin - that fight definitely sparked an interest in this world for me.

    Why would anyone want to share if your insulting them right off the bat? It gives off the impression that you're closed minded to the point that any debate with you would be a waste of time because you wouldn't be able to see the other side.

    Just wondering, not to give off the impression that I don't like MMA. I actually enjoy it quite a lot

    I've long been interested in practical (read: applied) martial arts, so MMA has been something of a godsend to me.

    I'll probably catch a lot of flak for it, but I stand behind Anderson Silva as one of the most talented and skilled strikers in the sport of MMA. I absolutely love seeing his stand up game.

    Yes, I did see the Sonnen fight.

    Si = 12 [][][][][][][][][][][][]
    Ni = 12 [][][][][][][][][][][][]
    Se = 11[][][][][][][][][][][]
    Fe = 0

    I'm amazed sonnen won those standup exchanges. I'm convinced Silva was injured.

    Yeah, a fucked up rib will really effect a LOT in a fight. Can't generate power, can't breathe...etc.

    No way, man. The most physically demanding and strategically challenging game out there is definitely Pong.
