Fight hype builds in Vegas
I can't remember. I frequently channel surf. Maybe i have just lost interest too, i don't know.
The ultimate fights always seem to be two guys holding each other for the entire round. They break up at a bell, try to throw a punch and grab each other again and wrestle. Watched for two minutes once as two guys struggled to get one arm free for an open handed slap to the face. They were two strong scary men and if one broke free it would get messy, but both know that and fight to stop it. Boring.

Watched the ultamite fighting a few times and got board to death watching two guys hug for 20 minutes.

1. MMA is hardly "redneck." Fighters use Thai kickboxing, boxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Greco-Roman wrestling and other fighting disciplines - hardly a bunch of slack-jawed yokels smacking one another around.
2. To date there have been two deaths in MMA (one from a regulated fight and one from an unregulated fight in the Ukraine). In the almost 20 years it's been a recognized sport, there have been over 100 deaths in regulated and unregulated boxing matches: http://ejmas.com/jcs/jcsart_svinth_b_0700.htm
To Michael Abriola:
Do you you also sniff the paint as you're watching it dry?
