Does anyone here feel like the original UFC was much more real?

    You mean a league where they only took fighters who refused to learn how to fight?

    Ironically, today’s fighters live fighting a lot more. They don’t just show up for a tournament.

    I think 2000-2010 were the golden years of all MMA. The UFC before that was still very intriguing to watch.

    It's watered down for sure. Far too many cards, and especially far too many fights per card. I still get the same goosebumps once in a while though, although admittedly the goosebumps only come a few times a year... which would be about the same frequency as when there were only a few cards a year. So, in a nutshell, meh.

    kflo dood, the term "REAL" Martist Artis is in reference to UFC1 or the underground cage fighting it was or is not like medieval times where you sign a "Death Weaver" a fight to death LoL.

    Also the majority of fighters were actual trained martial artist from various styles, key word "TRAINED"!

    Where now you have guys that just train on MMA skills have no real depth of Martial Art training or knowledge yet alone the bone and other necessary body conditioning, think what you like its my view my reply.

    Realistically a Martial Artist in ancient say Japanese Samaurai's where the forefront of their military might and legendary....... its 2018 so many Martial Art Practices are illegal in the modern age and many practices no longer taught in Dojos and kwoons.

    Todays combat sports is just pathetic to say the least!

    Get educated at least...........

    You’re clueless.

    Again mma is just a term for fighting competition with fewer rules. Martial arts are practices. But they can only be tested in open competition. Depth of martial arts training? What on earth are you talking about?

    Well your first sentence is misleading and your second sentence is wrong. So you have zero credibility and educated people won’t read the rest.

    Tip: If you don’t know what you’re talking about then just STFU.

    The big fights are better these days, but there's alot of filler. I tend to skip alot of cards these days, I just can get invested in it when there's fights every week

    Guy, go and play with your UFC gloves stop pestering.

    Todays martial arts in the western understanding can't be compared to ancient warriors not even close.

    Today is just a sport if that.............. in past they trained the body to be like an "IRON BAR"!











    Go keep arguing if you like.................

    I love current MMA, but early MMA is my favorite era. It did feel more real. Once there were more than a couple of weight classes, it became a sport.
    One thing I do strongly dislike is the 265 HW limit. If the HW champ is the baddest man in the world, why is he being protected against bigger and potentially stronger men?
    I do think this will go away one day, when there is a real prospect who wants to fight and can’t make 265, like if young Shaq was a born fighter.

    It was like I prefer the middle era like UFC about 10 years ago when I use to watch every card and they didn't have 15 division and 1000 fighters.

    Definitely agree. I'll add the cage strategy has really evolved MMA in general. By that I mean literally using the cage as an advantage during the fight.

    So TS yeah it doesn't feel exactly like the side show it once was. More refined, allot more money, it's almost professional but still hinges on compete shit show of pure entertainment at the expense of people willing to be punched in the face. So on some regards it's the same.
