    Ha ha ya gotta laugh, oh ps you should really check your own prior to the critique .... ( ? is this missing from some place?) but seriously when I said education I refer to subject knowledge, lol ..a valid point all the same.

    Love how an MMA topic has turned in to GCSE English.
     
  10. Top tip.....the "quote" button is on the right hand side.

    With regards to your English, I have edited your mistakes.
     
  11. Well smudge, firstly why no mainstream coverage? Surely you being a former fighter can see the benifits of more wide spread exposure for the sport?
    And when it is in the news or on mainstream tv it is always to try and rubbish the sport ...brutal this barbarrick that!! know what I meen? Fighters know what it takes to step into that cage ..no room to hide in there, no forum warriors or walts.
    And i think boxing has a very tight grip on the ratings as far as fight sports go and they feel the pressure that MMA is bringing, boxing is a great sport but it its in comparison fairly one dimensional...and thats were the fear comes in in my humble educated opinion. lol
     
  12. lol cheers ICT as well English this place is great ..
     
  13. Cage fighting has always been viewable on Sky. That's where I've always watched it.

    Granted, exposure to a wider audience will bring the sport on, no doubt. In time, I'm sure that will be the case.

    People who don't usually watch contact sports will porbably not enjoy the sport, purely because of it's aggressive nature (more blood than normal etc)
     
  14. Hey wadya know the quote button works...

    When I say mainstream I mean terrestrial TV BBC etc.. not sat or cable, at the moment the only channel that shows MMA is Bravo on cable or sky or extreme sports channel on sky or cable or the wrestling channel (pisses me off, that it is classed in the same bunch as pro wrestling ) on sky.
    I get the point you make about the blood and stuff but why not after 9pm?hows that different from boxings bloody wars?
