Re: MMA Discussion Thread
Ah a new thread for a discussion.
Okay closing out the last thread, saw a couple of new faces that admittedly just got into MMA. It's a fantasic sport, the more the better.
I'm wondering how everyone here themselves got into MMA?
I stopped watching wrestling late 2003/early 2004 I believe. It was the end of 2004 when my older brother showed me Ken Shamrock vs. Tito Ortiz, their first fight. It was a repeat on Bravo here in the UK.
I was a huge Ken fan from watching wrestling in the 90's, so wondered how he would do in a real fight. Since watching that, safe to say I was hooked on MMA.
Bravo hardly aired any UFC, and the UFC website was really plain. There was hardly any MMA videos on the net at the time either. Youtube wasn't around or anything.
They started airing one hour events on Bravo, so I tried to catch them as best I could then TUF came around and they aired TUF 1 on Bravo the same time it was aired in the States. And then I found Sherdog, which led me to PRIDE lol the rest is history.
