    I noticed that all the big sports have their hallowed ground. Baseball has got Wrigley field, soccer has Old Trafford. It's strange that none of the combat sports has their own purpose built arena, not even boxing.

    This is what a sumo stadium in Japan looks like.

    Basically smaller and enclosed and more intimate setting with the crowd. I should think it also provides much better acoustics and viewing angles too, as opposed to an all purpose olympic/track and field stadium.

    This would help bring more brand recognition to MMA. These places would be known as "fight halls" or something like that. :o

    a little bit of pagentry wouldn't hurt either.

    I would play up the rivalry between the various schools.

    BCIT if you are trolling, well... good. But if not, you are an annoying faggot. You post as though you are a thoughtful but retarded 15 year old. You make stupid threads and I'd say something about your replies, but I don't read them. I am quite certain they are stupid as well.

    And a serious reply to another asinine thread, no they would never work.

    If an arena were specific to MMA the ability to host other events in said arena would be severely diminished. There are very few single purpose arenas in North America. Baseball stadiums are the notable ones, but they play 80+ games a year. An MMA only arena would have maybe 5 or 6 shows a year (assuming it was built in vegas). This wouldn't be profitable and thus wouldn't make sense for anyone involved.

    yeah and basketball arenas are usually used for other shit to. American Airlines arena was being used for basketball hockey and they used it for other shit as well like the mtv awards and concerts and shit. Same thing with madison square garden. It really is only justifiable for baseball. Hell even football games can be played in a baseball stadium look at pro player or what ever the fuck its called now.

    how do sumo halls manage?

    Besides this would for all combat sports. So that would include sumo, boxing, fencing, BJJ, grappling, muay thai, etc.

    :hsd: You don't have a lot of knowledge of other cultures do you? Sumo wrestling is still very big in Japan... It's their national sport, like Canada is to Hockey.
