For years, I hated UFC....the thought of it made me sick to my stomach. No kidding, I thought it was as bad as the Christians and the lions. I wondered what our society had come to.
Then this guy came to work for me who was an MMA fighter, so I started paying attention, slowly at first because I still assumed he was a goon and it was pandering to the lowest common denominator.
I've got to say now that it really is a sport. There is a TON of technique involved and the most skillful, not necessarily the most brutal, person generally wins. It is by far the fastest growing sport in America - still not my favorite because I love college football, etc. but really big - and I think the reason it is growing is because people are figuring out it is more than just apes mauling each other.
So my bad for playing into the stereotype and referring to them beating the crap out of each other. Sometimes I overdo the visual references.
But is anyone thinks it is gross and vulgar, I respect that because I was there for a long time.
Ok, enough about Chuck and fighting. Back to dancing.
