Ever since i was a little kid, i've always liked fighting. i would watch every Kung Fu, Samurai, Martial Arts movie i could catch. some weekends i would watch pro wrestiling at my grandfathers house. George "The Animal" Steel was a monster. he was hilarious. and then the ultimate fighting tourniments came out. me and my friends would get crazy bitching about which Martial style was the baddest. For those of you who don't know, before Ken Shamrockesque type fighters introduced the "ground and pound" or "brawling" stuff that occupies seventy percent of most modern heavyweight matches, they used to represent alot more fighting styles in the fights. Crazy Kenpo against Shaolin Longfist, Red Dragon Karate vs. Goju-Ryu Karate, Aikido vs. Wei Chi Ryu... the fights were pretty entertaining. But now, you have Jujitsu, Muay Thai, Kick Boxing, and dirty raping. that's it.
Don't misunderstand, i still watch all the time, but it is so gay. It drives me nuts, all the people who are like"MMA is so bad ass, you're gay if you think it's gay, i'd like to see you fight them..." whatever. i would love to. but the fact still remains, generally speaking, MMA is super gay.
Think about it like this. once upon a time... the Greeks would strip down naked lube up and hold contests of strength where they would try to submit their will on their opponent... wrestiling was born, and it was gay. everyone knows that the Greeks used to love the one they were with, and that was okay, noone judged... but it was still gay.
Japanese Martial arts like Judo,Jujitsu, Karate, Kenpo,Aikido, Sumo, so on. so on, so on, all use similar grappling and submission techniques, and although they wear more clothes, rolling around on the ground with other dudes is a little gay. it's a fact.
People hear me say this, and reply..." you're just a homophobe..." not true. i'm thirty three percent gay, i can match colors well, i like some musicals, Prince , Michael Jackson, and Jamiroquai. i can tell if another dude is handsome or sexy. but i am nowhere near gay enough to roll on the floor and dry hump a man into submission.
So, while i can realize the strength and athletic ability it takes to be a MMA champ, and still watch every match every chance i get, the fact still remains... MMa is super gay.
