Rickson on Today's MMA: MMA SETS A BAD EXAMPLE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AND IT ‘ONLY ATTRACTS PEOPLE WHO LIKE BARBARIANISM AND ALL THAT BLOOD’

Whether or not you agree with his views on jiu-jitsu, his attacks -- from 2012 yet -- on MMA are spot on. And his Facebook page just re-posted this. Many MMA pioneers are exposing the trash that MMA has largely become. Let's keep it up. - Eddie

Rickson is correct.

Zuffa and Bellator are aimed for low intelligence, low class people.

Bellator just put on an event in 2015 with Ken Shamrock and Kimbo headlining. I don't care how many people watched it, it's garbage.

I agree 100%

MMA doesnt breed people with good character like the true martial arts do. Just attracts idiots and tough guys.

Fighting in a CAGE is disgusting! MMA should be in a RING.

Bellator just put on an event in 2015 with Ken Shamrock and Kimbo headlining. I don't care how many people watched it, it's garbage wrote:

How can you not be excited for Kimbo vs Shamrock in 2015?

Rickson: I want you to tell me what social benefit MMA contributes to society, to the participant, the audience, or for those interested in being a part of MMA? You give me an answer, and I’ll think about if maybe there’s a possibility for me to like MMA. Right now, MMA to me is simply a sensationalist sport that feeds society’s need for extreme violence. They enjoy seeing the extreme, the same way you see two truck drivers fighting on the street and you stop to watch, without knowing who’s right or wrong, without knowing if the guys going to kill someone or die. MMA is the same thing. Fans go there to see violence, blood, flying teeth, and if the fight involves some technique, nobody likes it.

Coming from a guy whose family put on no holds barred fights in gyms regularly....

Were apart of ufc when headbutts and elbws to the balls were great tactical manuevers lol.

Id be more mesmerized by his speech if gracies didnt fall off the planet in terms of relevance in mma in general.

I do agree mma has used some un attractive means to become popular.

But guys like jonperetti support bkb and throw stones at mma.....

To each his own if u honestly hate mma then don't watch......meanwhile there are millions who will tune in in your place.

I watch and enjoy One Championship events. They put on really good shows, they are the best company in the world. They do use a cage but I love their rules set.

They don't use the garbage unified rules like UFC/Bellator.

lol at FKA trying to catch johnperreti out...

ONE FC is proof that knees and soccer kicks on the ground are fucking awesome and stop americanised decision wrestling!

The cage isnt perfect and I do prefer the ring but come on now the unified rules havent changed in 16 years
