OK … I am very sorry that this is not really a post but I have seen some pretty darn small posts here. This is really a call for help. I have some buddies who are really into UFC (‘real’ fighting) and I have been trying to get into it …
Whenever I watch it I see guys like GSP and others seemingly mount a guy until he taps out (if a guy in spandex wraps himself around me like that I am tapping out … pain or no pain ;) ). I think that I have been watching the wrong UFC events. I saw one of the GSP/BJ Penn fights and it seemed like most of the fight had GSP pinning BJ Penn and punching him in the jaw repeatedly (Penn is one tough bastard to last that long).
My buddies into UFC give me a hard time about watching the ‘fake’ stuff. I explain that UFC bores me a bit because it’s ‘too damn real’. Don’t get me wrong, the UFC guys are tough athletes but just like real fights, they are short and not as exciting as an HBK/Bret Hart classic. So I respect the UFC guys but cannot get into it. So I am looking for the following:
1. Being new to UFC, what events would you recommend (e.g. UFC 100) and/or what matches rocked your world (i.e. got you into UFC)
2. Do you prefer UFC or WWE/TNA/wrestling and why?
I am hoping to get some good comments/points going that my buds and myself have not discussed and some really good recommendations on UFC but smartass comments are welcome :)
Thank you in advance, The Brady Hicks Universe!
