    I remember before you had to go out of your way to see a pride fight or wait to download it or you had to wait a month to see a UFC card. The way things have worked themselves out its a pretty great time to be a fan now. UFC has its cards and they have been putting out more fight nights as well, random leagues pop up and even though they have one or two events they usually have some good fights on there (ie. affliction not yamma lol) and then you have elite xc now that releases a card with some fights you can talk about.

    Its a good time now for guys that want to see constant mma action. :hsd:

    yeah I remember I used to get antzy waiting for fights because I would have to wait a month for an event. Then some times UFC would schedule it where you would get an event then another event 2 weeks later and you were like fuck yea! Then you wouldnt see another event for 6 weeks lol. It would be every month but once and awhile there would be a big gap.

    Now its better especially for me who works on the weekends. I have something to look forward to now.

    I kinda agree I used to love watching every pride and every UFC it was a huge event because it was a few times a year now its a most weekend sort of thng its kinda lost that anticipation aspect.

    But I dont mind that much Id love to watch a good event a few times a week if it was on.

    for me its great when I have a saturday off because I will watch a ufc event have a great time and by the time the event is over im a little buzzed so then I head to a bar finish the deal and go clubbing. Have a blast the whole night.

    If Im working I have something that will kill a couple of hours.

    I don't know about you guys but I remember staying up from 1am-5am listening to the Pride live broadcasts online before they had video streams.

    It really is a great time to be a MMA fan, look at all the great events on TV and how we get at least one good event every month.

    You wouldn't see that in boxing (yeah yeah, its a different sport, suck my dick drag on :squint:)

    LOL it's totally true about boxing. I used to be really into it and would get to see a good event every 3-4 months. Even then they only have a really good matchup maybe twice a year.
