So obsessed with proving that I'm "taking out my arse" (which I do on every subject, don't even pretend I don't) you're not even reading what I say properly.

I said I think he's trained in muay thai or some variant, not that muay thai was a variant of kickboxing. For a literary expert your powers of comprehension are severely lacking, a little more time spent on that and less picking up grammatical errors would serve you well. It's not an entirely separate debate because it is literally the point I made in the first place that you felt the need to pick me up on, and it's lead to you rambling a load of shite at me in an attempt to prove your knowledge on a subject that is clearly poor. I don't claim to be an expert on MMA and have not trained in a strike based martial art at any point in my life, but clearly a few kickboxing lessons hasn't given you any stronger basis in this argument.

Again, lecturing on what UFC is and telling me how it's different to other forms of MMA. No shit mate, I say as much in my post but you're too busy looking for an argument that you forgot to read. UFC is more favourable to grappling which is the point I was making, if you had ever watched Pride Fights you'd have known that they would occasionally switch to five three minute rounds for certain fights as this encouraged more trading which is clearly a better spectacle. That is the reason for me saying I don't enjoy UFC. You tell me I'm talking out my arse about round times impacting on the fight, but then say exactly what I am saying by agreeing that longer rounds allow for more grappling and ground & pound. You've not proven me wrong at all, you've just said I was wrong and then elaborated on the point I was actually making.

Never once said that grapplers should stop grappling, only that shorter rounds would allow for enforced breaks in the grappling, which is quite franky gay as fuck and therefore encourage more trading which is more enjoyable. If you want to have a discussion on how you enjoy watching men roll around with each other on the floor for 4 and a half minutes then start a thread on it, I certainly won't be joining.

Where do I start with this total nonsense? Warnock

First of all, I didn't tell you that UFC is 'different to other forms of MMA'.  It's interesting that you claim to know that, though, because it isn't.  UFC isn't a 'form of MMA'.  It's a promotion.  The rules aren't different.  Calling the UFC a 'form of MMA' is like calling the Champions League a 'form of football'.  Is this another lecture?  Apologies if so, but it's apparently a necessary one as you have no idea what you're talking about.

You've mentioned Pride there, which is an irrelevance as Pride is now defunct.  It merged with the UFC. The MMA ruleset has been standardised since it went defunct.

I didn't agree with you at all.  Shorter rounds would change things inasmuch as fighters would have more incentive to 'go for it', but that could equally be on the ground.  Depending on the fighters it could be conducive to more grappling, as the grappling side of things is if anything more tiring than striking.

Funny how you end your post by lashing out about grappling being 'franky [sic] gay as fuck' when I've literally already said that I don't watch much MMA as I find the grappling boring.

Edit: the bit about 'other forms of MMA' may have been a reference to my mention of rookie level. If so, then it's like calling amateur boxing a different form of boxing to professional.

Let's just agree that pro wrestling is far superior to MMA.

I will stalk the board, waiting to strike. The next typo you make will be jumped upon and you will be met with days of built up rage.

By the looks of things, we have a lot in common. Just ask Partridge about the time I waited several months to get him back for having a go at me for being mean to new members. Smug

I think the only way to properly resolve this is an MMA fight to the death.

Preferably the "to the death" applies to both of them and it's not a simple last one alive wins scenario Smug

It's ironic that the sort of cretin who would make disparaging comments about the fine art of pro wrestling like "it's just two men rolling around in their pants" gets quite excited about UFC, which is just two men rolling around in their pants. Greggy
