In the wrong clan then. Also @aelios and a few other people follow and know quite a bit about the sport (and related combat sports like BJJ, Wrestling, Boxing)
You wanna go right now?
I'm about the same but with BJJ and MMA @Ellodin. I follow the Grappling scene quite closely, and have been fighting for about 8 years.
"You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else."
I watch constantly all the videos on youtube to learn and check stuff. So I would say yes. I think I watched almost 80% of the video about MMA too, no joke, We do not have MMA on TV here (Italy), apart from crappy competition (Bellator, and other minor events) on Sky. I have been training in fighting for about 23 years, and I have friends extremely competent in groud fighting as well.
After may years, I use small joint manipulations, and other stuff forbidden in competitions, and this change dramatically the way I fight now (standing or ground), I know, it is not meant for competition, but in the end is what I would use in RL. I did my time in competition, won something, I am 41….
Have I been summoned? I don't really play much anymore, but I dabble (as a spectator) in MMA/Grappling/Kickboxing. Boxing is OK, I'm just a little less knowledgeable.
Apparently people walked out of UFC 174? I haven't watched it yet, and I'm not really enthused if people were leaving the live event...
