View Full Version : I have to admit.

I used to think I liked old MMA better. I had events like UFC 1 and pride 1 on a pedestal. I thought the old fighters were superior. But I've recently been re watching the old events and they just don't hold up to the quality of todays fights.



Don't care?

To me the best ones to re-watch are from around UFC 40 and the early Bushido era in Pride coz thats when i started watching. Nothing like seeing guys like Cabbage in there(he was on event i rewatched the other day lol), guys who wouldn't have a hope these days lol.

But the athletes have become much better and made it more entertaining to watch these days.

the old days are still good to watch though, a lot of it was brute force back then and i still like that type of fight aswell as the technical stuff

It is hard to compare the early days of mma to today. It is just so night and day. The guys now are so much more well rounded and better athletes. Not many of the early era guys would be able to compete with the guys at the top today.
