    Not a fan of it, but my nephew won't shut up about it -_-;;
    Bloody it was on the front of its chest
    and long it barked at the father of magic;
    on rode Odin, the road resounded,
    he approached the high hall of Hel.

    This is either football or boxing.

    Right, I knew that. I know what martial arts is, I just didn't know they still did cage fighting.

    I would be if it was still actually MMA, instead of just a couple of sweaty men rolling around groping each other on the mat. Sometimes they make something happen, but for the most part it's so boring now...very disappointing.

    The only sport I have ever watched completely is Curling. My theory is that it's more fun to play the sport rather than watch the sport. I'm not big on being on the ice though.

    Well... like it or not...it turned out that the most effective fighting style in the world is grappling. The first few ultimate fighting championships (back when it was an open tournament with no weight classes and no rules) proved that being able to grapple and control your opponent trumps just about any other fighting style, and trumps the size and strength of your opponent.

    So as mixed martial arts has developed into its own set of rules, pretty much all the fighters have needed to become versed in what's called "the ground game"...being able to grapple and avoid injury while wrestling, and still attack your opponent.

    Personally, I'm not sure why the Sonnen / Silva fight is receiving so much hype. I've seen Silva fight a lot, and he's really good...I've seen Sonnen only once and he lost pretty badly. Did Sonnen improve and become a legit threat? Otherwise, it's the other fights on the card that interest me more. I think Silva will likely make short work of Sonnen.

    I agree... Back in the gladiator days, THAT was freaking fun! BLOOD, broken bones, teeth flying around like flies. Nowadays these blokes dont even put a bruise on each other. Same with wrestling...
