My boy is back tonight
Tito Ortiz vs Forrest Griffin
Live form the Pond in Cali
They sold out in a day a half. 16,000 tickets
Waiting for the PPV to start in 18 minutes.
How many people on this site watch the pay per views.
Let me know as I plan to write previews and recaps of the events if there is enough interest.
I probably will do it anyway
Thanks to all

So how was the show? I am just starting watch this stuff, as one of the fitness sites (crossfit) I read talks about CrossPit (Liddell) fitness, using a lot crossfit techniques. It hadn't occured to me how in shape these fighters have to be until you see 3 5:00 rounds are hell.

Awesome show as always.
The sport is just growing and growing. It is 10 times better than boxing, and I LOVE Boxing.
Check out the show on SpikeTV on Thursday night to see how these freaks train.
It is unreal.

why isnt this sport bigger than boxing yet? It is far superior.

The key is that we need to keep the promoters out of it. The promoters are ultimately what has undone boxing. I remember a time when boxing was king and horseracing was a close second. Now boxing is not even on the map.

What makes this sport great is that is not corrupt (yet at least) and that the fighters literally have the chance to defeat any other fighter on any given night. It is terrific to see a striker get dominated by a grappler and then watch the same grappler get dominated by a submission specialist who was just knocked out by the striker.

What surprised my wife is how "not gorey" UFC fights typically are. You would think that with those tiny gloves and head kicks there would be much more blood but there really isnt too much gore (most of the time), jeremy toth withstanding.
