I would think most nice innocent guys dont just wake up one day and decide they wanna fight...Fighting is kind of in you and im sure 50 % or so of fighters had troubled pasts and were criminals and they found a legal way to do what they enjoy and make money.
The other 50 % would likely be collage wrestlers.
If they were to hold all fighters accountable for their past's...You know how many great fight's we would have never seen? how many champions would have never been?
MMA is a sport filled with douchebags and always will be. Just like it's fans us are the same way.. Most strait laced blue collar goody goods don't care to watch MMA it's those who have that chip on their shoulders or a bit of anger in us or do a bit of drugs that enjoy watching people get banged out.
I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship. |
