Well, actually, I've been competing in pre-qualifying matches before the ufc guys and it's been determined that based on certain skills I've portrayed that I'm not able yet to compete. This isn't because I lack fighting ability, no, get this - it's because they've determined that my fighting style will potentially severely incapacitate, if not accidentally kill, the other fighter.

So now I need to work on a different tactic to "tone it down". Ugh. Who knew getting in the ufc was so difficult.

I love the UFC, and Mixed Martial Arts in general, and I've become somewhat addicted..

My co-workers make fun of me because I have 4 different MMA apps on my phone, and I check them constantly so I can keep up on the latest rumors, fight announcements, etc. They call me their personal MMA news source, because none of them are as addicted to it as I am.

tRIUNE : Out of curiosity, have you had any amateur or pro fights thus far? Because unless you're Brock Lesnar, you aren't going to get directly into the UFC without any amateur/pro fights (he was 1-0 when he entered the UFC). They only want the absolute best of the best, and if you haven't proven yourself in actual fights then they are not willing to take the risk on you. And no offense, but I seriously doubt that your fighting style could kill or incapacitate another pro fighter. They have measured some of the best fighters' strengths on ESPN's Sports Science and have measured thousands and thousands of pounds of force on punches and kicks, so anything short of bringing a weapon into the octagon is unlikely to kill or incapacitate another fighter. For example: Mauricio "Shogun" Rua's leg kick measured a total of 2,749 pounds of force, which means his leg travels at approximately 33 miles per hour.

Not to be a buzz-kill or anything, but it isn't really cool to keep people thinking that you are a professional fighter when you aren't. I am not saying that you do not train, but if you were a professional fighter trying to make his UFC debut you wouldn't say you were going to accidentally kill your opponent and you would tell us your name and fight stats in my opinion.

Well, if you'd like, I'm not stopping you. You also have to remember that no matter how good you are, there's always someone better. Just be careful and don't get bruised too badly XD

ExiledPariah : Never said I was a pro fighter: they've determined from per-qualifying matches that I need to tone done my fighting style before I can get into amateur matches. Thanks for clarifying that for me - that's what I meant.

tRIUNE : The UFC is only a professional organization, they do not handle amateur fights or any kind of pre-qualifying fights. The only kind of qualifying fight I can think of is for one of the upcoming seasons of the Ultimate Fighter, but you'd have to have a professional record of some kind before being seriously considered for that.

In my opinion, incapacitate means knocked out. That is something they want, a knockout is a great finish to a fight. The only way I know of to kill another person is to punch them repeatedly in the back of the head, at the base of the brain stem, which they will stop you after no more than 2 punches to the back of the head and give you a warning.

There is a difference between saying a UFC match and a mixed martial arts match. Noone "trains" UFC, they train mixed martial arts.

tRIUNE : I re-read my earlier messages, and they came out a lot worse than I intended them to. It is actually common for people to accidentally say "UFC" when they mean MMA in general, but that's alright. If you are training to fight, best of luck, and be sure that you are as well-rounded as possible. You need to be just as skilled in the stand-up as you are on the ground.

I keep lolling when I see "Incapacitate or kill"

For some reason I just find it hard to believe that's really likely given that a lot of these MMA guys are super built and trained to take a beating. Especially once you climb higher into the professional circuit... haha....

But hey, it seems you enjoy it, so by all means keep at it. It's not the same as cross country (thank god, or I would have never run it xD) but it requires a level of dedication similar to the one runners take.

legacyme3 : the deal with that is because they want from me certain stuff to not do... so yeah, it's funny on paper, but not so much in the rink.

I do enjoy it because it's a form of release for me. And besides, with the ufc, you're only fighting someone that is your size, you know? So it's not like I'm trying to fight a heavyweight if I'm not in that class myself.

I suppose lol.

It's not really my thing. I think it's just more glorified violence personally, and being a pacifist, I couldn't ever see myself really getting into the whole MMA/UFC scene.

Hey, whatever works for you right? Everyone needs a release.

UFC needs a last man standing battle royal... throw everyone in octagon and let them beat the crap out of one another gladiator style till only one person is left standing. 1vs1 is boring lets see Jet lee in there take on 20 guys lol.

I like watching the UFC fights, they are pretty exciting. Truth is though that I don't get to watch it as much as I would like because I don't want to pay the 50$ to get it on PPV, or to go to some crowded bar to watch it. I do sometimes, but only if there's a really big fight.

Well, with what you say you're trained in, I think you should do it. I believe it would be a good career choice. If you do join, I wish you good luck and hope for prosperity in your future.

I have never personally liked it much, I've watched a few times and thought meh...

Although some of my friends are major fans of it, so I watch it when I go over to their house.

JigSaw : That would be a true no holds bar match actually lol.

You have these judges that tell you (me) that you can't fight like that... so with the rules they have I am far beyond disqualified; but I am training in Hapkido now to balance it out with the Jujitsu in lieu of the Ninjutsu and Kung Fu - it is definitely less entertaining to watch the fights on the ground, but I was hoping to end it before it got to there, but I was actually wrong about that method I see now.
