    I honestly expected our classes to nearly double with guys who just watched Never Back Down and want to be the next Chuck Liddell. I must say, there hasnt been much of a change where I train. I'm just wanting to see if anyone else has noticed a difference. If the movie had any effect on MMA.

    10 people have signed up already. If they stay, cool, they'll learn what it's really about. If they leave, they're still on contract. Thanks for paying for westside fight team!

    i dont think people take that movies as serious as the execs. thought.
    Never back down is a failure, and i refuse to ever watch it. Well maybe. On video. Pirated video. From china.

    there will probably be very few.

    people will like the movie, and after watching, think they're tougher street fighters. They won't know to get training

    A couple guys have joined thinking that they can automatically be at the level of the guys as they show in the movie in just a few classes. Seems like all of them look for a fast track to be mma fighters

    Those guys are usually gone after their trial.

    i went to visit my old gym this morning and :eek4: at all of the people there. when i used to train there it was 3-4 people at once so you practically got 1 on 1 training, but now it's 10-15 at a time. but now they have a grappling class too :coold:

    I haven't heard a single person mention Never Back Down outside of The Cage.
