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.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

I got into the UFC around UFC 97 in 2009 due to the UFC Undisputed 2009 coming out on PS3 at that time. First event I watched live was UFC 99 from Germany which was main evented by Wanderlei and Franklin. First favorites were Liddell, Wanderlei and Lesnar.

aw man nostalgia, for a good few years the old Bravo channel was so great, before I had internet it was the first and only place to see so much cool shit - UFC, ECW, UWFi, Troma movies, weird crime/sex/drug/music documentaries, plus all the softcore porn they showed. I know it went crappy towards the end but for a while it was easily the best thing on cable.

Re: MMA Discussion Thread

got into the ufc early 2010. 115 was the first event i watched, as i only really noticed it through hearing about tuf 10/ufc 114. decided to give it a view and never looked back. condit/rory was a pretty awesome introduction to the sport, so no wonder i got hooked. 116 was the first ppv i ordered. tuf 1 got me pretty hooked on the sport too, and i suppose is the reason why i'm a fan of pretty much every guy from that series.
