UFC Evolution

I watched the first UFC and hated it. I didn't understand why Royce was grabbing and hugging people. It wasn't until I understood grappling that I really got interested in the UFC, although we'd still watch the PPV's as they occurred.

I'm one who preferred the original style of the UFC, fight until you lost, winner takes all! The single fight system is a lot safer, and makes for better fights with limited use of groin punches (remember Joe Son vs Keith Hackney /shudder), but it doesn't have the same grit that the original events had. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a huge fan, and we still watch as many events as possible..I just preferred the old system.

I hated the first few UFC events...Royce was driving me up the wall with his hugging...crap I remember watching a match I think it went 30 minutes...it was a draw...so they went 5 more minutes...to which Royce went right back to hugging position...lol...

You must be referring to the Superfight in UFC 5 or 6 between Gracie and Shamrock. It wasn't until I learned a bit about Jiu-jitsu that I could go back and watch the moves/counter-moves and enjoy that fight. It took way too long. An even worse Gracie fight was in Pride vs Sakuraba. They stood in the ropes for an eternity, and Sakuraba started messing with Gracie by spanking him in the corner.

Say what you will about the GOOD OLD DAYS of UFC but, the PPV buys were nothing like now. In SW Florida where I live the Night Spots that offer UFC to their patrons on PPV nights are packed to turn away crowds while the other places that don't are empty, even popular places. We tried to get into a couple places in Nov. 08 for UFC 91, nearly 2 hours early, no luck. In Dec. the crowds were large again for UFC 92. This weekend on Sat. we have AFFLICTION on PPV with HWs Fedor vs. Arlovski, UFC 91 replays on Spike and Sun. WEC LIVE has LWs Faber and Pulver headlining on VS. Next weekend is the Superbowl but, I bet UFC 94 on PPV with WWs Penn and St. Pierre will still do well. The Weight Class format is building more stars than the "Tough Man" Open class ever did. Liddell and Ortiz are LHWs who are now stars outside MMA. Star power sells PPVs and merchandise. Money talks. MMA is Rockin', "Let's Get It ON !!"

What made healines after UFC 121? Lesnar's confrontation with the Undertaker after the fight was what everybody was talking about! They didn't go on about how complete a fighter Velasquez is or how Brock's game plan failed. No, only hype about WrestleMania 27! :roll:

No kidding... I thought Brock was gonna get his ass kicked twice in one night! The UFC would need to implement a Casket Match before that could occur though!!
