    You're automatically an "MMA fighter" guy?

    MMA != a style.

    I doubt someone whos a TKD or Judo or BJJ only person would consider themselves an MMA fighter. Or do you mean an MMA fan?

    Ignorance, the "OMG hai2u mma gai!" mob mentality bullshit really irks me. It's like the faggots who show up to ANY Martial Arts school hoping to become the next big MMA dude. Then takes 2 lessons and shows up in Fairtex shorts and wearing level-4 6oz MMA gloves and a Gracie rashguard... to his Karate class.

    It's kind of expected seeing how MMA is so huge now. You would not believe the amount of idiots that show up in bars claiming they're MMA fighters and how they're going to fight in the UFC or some crock like that.

    fuckin :werd:

    i've had a guy try to convince me that he's "4 to 6 months away from the UFC," and then listed the styles he trains in. he pretty much named everything under the sun, ranging from kung fu to aikido to bjj.

    My favorites are the ones that train in some weird ass kung fu art or whatever, and they claim their master/sensei/teacher can beat up someone like chuck lidell but chooses not to. :ugh2:

    i always tell my friends that crocop and fedor are the number 3 and 2 hw fighters in the world, after me of course. but of course, there's a difference between those that are joking around and those that believe the bs that comes out of their mouth. btw, i'm buying a sledgehammer tomorrow to start my 3 year mission to fight fedor :o

    Yep. You're not an MMA fighter until you've actually gone and done a fight (amateur/pro, I don't think it matters).

    This is like all the ricer fags with their dropped Civics on 18"s and a parkbench spoiler calling themselves racers even though they have no idea where the nearest track is.

    I think MMA could be a 'style' nowadays... If an athlete's only goal is to become an MMA fighter they could learn things pulled from all of the arts that would apply to the mma game.
    You could learn Jiu jitsu and leave out all the collar chokes, hip escape while defending a punch. Learn boxing/muay Thai with a stance and awareness of defending/executing a takedown. Someone could actually become a very successful fighter and never truly master a single founding art.

    yeah it's pretty annoying but it comes with the rise in popularity. let 'em have their fake glory and know that in the end, YOU are the one going and putting the sweat and blood down on the mats. it's a waste of energy to try to worry too much about what some dipshit is doing and saying to feel like a cool guy.
