I watched a video of it about 10 years ago, I don't know how much more extreme it has become, but 10 years ago it made me feel uncomfotable. I like boxing, but this didn't sit well with me and ever since I saw the video I have avoided watching it.

While I love gladiator type movies, such as "Gladiator"... or even "Gladiator" (take your pick, but I liked "Gladiator" better), I try to limit my fight TV to something more believable, like a Jean Claude van Damme movies Or in a pinch, Steven Seagal

Actually, the only reason I'm even replying to this topic is because I just found this:

What other thread would I ever have a chance to use that?

I don't watch it, but I know Forrest Griffin personally. If I know that he is going to be on a broadcast, I try to catch it, but other than that I don't follow it.

And that is one thing that has made me spectators to the brutal sport...

I sharpened my teeth cooking for A manger(Lou Duva)

Though I have ties with Jess Willard, he was my great grand father, I had NO interest in brutal sports.

But, after meeting and greeting, and cooking for the like of Andy Golota, and Sweet Pea Whitaker, I realized that these dudes were just doing what they did. Some people cook, some people build houses...the guys just happened to beat the living H-E-double hockey sticks out of one another, but come the end of the day, it is all good. Just a job. Not some bar room brawl gone bad.

I have to give it to anyone that steps up to the plate for this type of sport...and that is all it is to me, a sport. These guys can devastate each other, yet still be friends at the end of the day, I think there is something to be said for that. They are professionals, know what they are getting into, and do it. If they are happy, fine with me.

If I didn't have family(and friends) involved, I might think differently, but these are real people doing what they do best, so be it.

I am with you there. Don't like most sports except watching baseball in person and NASCAR on TV. That is it. I do like to golf on occasion, but have no interest what-so-ever in watching it.
I do have to admit I did like watching figure skating for awhile.
