There's nothing I can contribute to this discussion because I don't really follow boxing or MMA, but I can't wait to use the term Gay Human Cockfighting the next chance I get.

I'll probably say it a few times with varied speed, syntax, and emphasis to really throw people off.

Why is MMA human cockfighting but boxing is ok? Because elbows, knees, and feet can be used? There are plenty of rules to prevent the very savage and dangerous from being a part of it. It's basically kickboxing with wrestling and jiu-jitsu.

Getting choked out, or more commonly tapping before that happens, is a lot safer than taking 100+ punches to the head.

So is having a fight stopped at the first sign of concussive damage instead of a standing 10 count.

Both are violent competitions. If one is human cockfighting, both are. Neither are.

Yeah, you can get seriously hurt in both. If you're arguing against combat sports in general that's one thing, but if youre trying to justify boxing as safer or more humane, it's just not true.

Not really. It's human cockfighting. Sorry.


Care to elaborate? Or do you really have nothing to back your opinion other than small minded thoughts, based off of poor research on a subject you clearly haven't tried to understand?

Ohhhh super burn! I don't owe you an explanation. I view it as the closest human version of cockfighting.

You guys are all wrong.

WWE is completely real and entertaining and Stone Cold Steve Austin could whip Mayweather, and Bones Jones' asses.

Wouldn't the backyard fights that Kimbo Slice did to get famous be closer?

Not aware of those but if they actually exist then sure.

I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

A couple fans in Nevada have filed a $5M class action lawsuit against Manny Pacquiao for not disclosing the shoulder injury prior to the fight (which evidently is a law).

 

This is interesting. Sounds like they may actually have a chance to win that case.

Well, I guess that will force Pacquiao into the rematch, which Mayweather has already graciously indicated a willingness to participate in once the injury is healed :rolleyes:

It's interesting on a few different levels. My immediate thought when the news surfaced late Saturday night was that they were fabricating an injury just to hype up the rematch... "oh, see, if Pacquiao has two healthy shoulders, he'll actually have a chance."

I believe his shoulder was hurt. I don't believe it will make much of a difference in a rematch.

Damn man! You're on point with the zingers today. I'll put it in basic terms so you understand. When MMA fighters fight they resemble human cock fighters. Good?

You've put it in basic terms multiple times now. Not once have you given an actual logical argument as to why.

Cockfighting is illegal, has no sanctions, and the well being of the fighters involved is of the least amount of importance. All of which are no where close to true for MMA. In fact, I'd guarantee that Dana White cares more about his fighters saftey than most employers care about their own employees at any other job.
