Do you watch ultimate fighting?

i caught a recent ultimate fight, and was wondering how many people here watch, and what type of person enjoys a gladiatorial "sport" such as the u.f.c.?

I do not go out of my way to catch it, but I have watched it. Pretty intense stuff!

Nope, I can't watch any of that stuff. I immediately think "That's somebody's kid!" One son just restored a vintage motorcycle and I'm having nightmares about that!

I have never seen it (outside of 60 minutes) but I will admit to some curiosity. My curiosity is because I hear it's real, and I hear it's close to street fighting, so I think it may be interesting.

Reason I haven't watched it is because of Studio Wrestling. When I was a little kid I thought Bruno Sammartino was actually kicking but.



When I found out it was mostly fake and fixed I was put off of show fighting.

Studio Wrestling morphed into the WWF, .... so I guess I see TV Fighting as Bogus.


I'm with Bilby, I stay away from places that show TV violence.
I don't need a Youngster , or even an old fart, getting all pumped up and looking for someone to have fun with. I'm at that age that those things that quit hurting years ago are hurting again.

I saw something on one of the movie channels that was either this same thing or similar, but I remember I could not take my eyes off of it. I can not believe the stuff people will do to each other for money and fame. I don't think I will go out of my way to watch it, but it was crazy to watch these two men beat the crap out of each other.

I'm a NINJA WARRIOR fan.. I like watching skill and endurance competitions. They compete against each other, but don't fight each other. That is much more my cup-o-tea!

We've seen a few fights. The first one was really exciting but... the next ones just made me sad. I don't watch anymore. I can't handle those guys being so dang voilent with each other. OUCH.
