And besides...it was sanctioned in Nevada. Nevada would sanction beheadings if the state could make some revenue.
Because of the "new fans" we're seeing other normal states begin to sanction the sport. Eventually MMA will be bigger and more accepted than boxing. And this is because of "new fans"
It's not the new fans it is the way the UFC is marketing it. You even said you came in on TUF 1 which deduces it back to marketing because you probably would not be a new fan if the show did not take place. MMA fights have been like this for a while now and it was before the new onslaught of fans. But I do love you guys because you make it better to be a fighter and now they make more money.
I probably would of went for it harder if I know I could make a buck at it then. So I do like you new fans for that and I must say thank you.
