Iíve been to 4.

Had medium lower bowl seats for 2. Didnít get a great feel for what was going on. Donít recommend.

Front row upper bowl was a pretty good Birdseye view.

Sat 2nd row once (for RDA v Alvarez Thurs night of fight week for $200!) and it was a really awesome experience.

lol how is that offensive? matt brown and carlos condit both had shots at the title and got beat the **** up. like, badly. they've been around for ages and we both know damn well neither of them will ever be a ufc champion.

and pointing that out is somehow more offensive than you sitting here cheering on the spectacle of two damaged men with nothing left to gain from this "sport" outside of another paycheck and a CTE diagnosis, for nothing more than your own selfish amusement?

yea, ok bro.

Re: Season's Beatings - EDF MMA/Fightin' Thread

and i say this as like, pretty much the epitome of a "just bleed" fan. i mostly think the bulk of these guys are losers and pieces of **** (that's pretty well documented inside and outside of the ring fwiw), but it is legitimately sad to watch guys fight past the point when they should be thinking about hanging it up, and see them get needlessly KTFO'd all over the place. look at ****ing chuck lidell, and he was a legit hall of famer with buku bucks.

i understand, it's hard to find a solid income stream after life in the UFC and a lot of these guys are fighting for a living because they have no skills/education/temperament to find a better gig somewhere. so naturally they try to stretch the career as long as possible. this all goes back to not being part of a union and not being compensated fairly for the sacrifices they make, which incentivizes them to stretch it as far as they can. which is hilariously ironic considering like 90% of these dudes are dyed in the wool trump/GOP supporters and going out there campaigning for people who are going to do nothing but keep perpetuating a system that just ****s all over them. but hey, if they were smart they probably wouldn't be doing this **** for a living.

so anyway, the whole situation of washed up dudes banging it out with each other after their prime is just sad and i'm pretty comfortable feeling like my morals are no worse than some ******* who cheers that **** on

ok last post. i highly recommend checking out a live kickboxing event if you ever have the opportunity. i've been to 3 or 4 glory events and its a great experience. views are clear and the impact sounds are just cringe-inducing. those dudes are so ****ing tough. a lot of the time they come out after their fights and mingle with the floor section, which is pretty cool. raymond daniels is a class act outside the ring ime.

Re: Season's Beatings - EDF MMA/Fightin' Thread

I've been to 2 UFC events. I sat nose bleed for Lesnar v Carwin and its hard to see technical stuff like submissions, but stand up is fine.

I worked Condit vs. Kampmann 2 and sat ringside, which was amazing until Kampmann started bleeding so much that I was actually worried I was going get blood on me.

I've got floor seats row 10 so should be decent view.
Now I just have to pray Gaethje or Dustin don't trip on something prior to next week

you're insulting two of the most fearless and entertaining fighters to ever fight in the ufc as if they were cans who got beatup for a paycheck.

Apparently unless you win the belt you're a nobody to you. Must suck to watch ufc events

It does suck now that every event has nonstop wooing idiots, but hey, every sport gets the fans that it deserves

I’m confused. Do you like MMA or not?
