I am a FAN of MMA and not a participant. Nowadays it seems everyone is going crazy about the sanctioned violence. I became a fan of the sport in 2005 and from then on I loved the competition, fighters, rules etc. Now it is 2009, I cannot go out without seeing a Tapout, Cagefigher, or Affliction shirt. I am not saying this is a bad thing when in reality it shows support. However, with all the newbie fans, comes less knowledge about the history. Is it just me, or do new fans to MMA lack fight knowledge? I am not putting them down, but it’s like they do not know who historic fighters are or hey have never seen a certain key fight. I don’t know, maybe it is just me. Also, it is as if everyone now wants to be a cage fighter? If they have the desire & will, I say more power to them. I know my limits and would never attempt to become one. So to wrap things up, is this MMA craze just a fad?
