Thread: Feuds in UK MMA

Hybrid View

    Default Feuds in UK MMA

    I've been involved in MMA since Autumn 2003 but have got a little out of touch with who's who etc since I stopped training about 3 years ago; so can someone explain to me why there are so many feuds in UK MMA

    Just off the top of my head we have:
    The world and his wife sniping at Knuckleup
    The Extreme Brawl dispute (which arguably is an exceptional case except that other people who don't necessarily know the full facts are commenting on it)
    The recent scepticism about BAMMA and their intentions
    Assorted disputes between former close associates that have popped up here over the last 12 months either as threads in themselves or as barbed comments in other threads

    It all seems a long way from where it all started as a world where everyone got along with each other and found it a refreshing change from the politics of traditional martial arts (TMA).

    The TMA world of senseis who wouldn't let you darken their door again if yoiu trained with someonel else, endless splitting and sub-splitting of establsihed organisations seems trivial in comparison.

    Could it be the same old problem but with higher stakes: Too many people wanting to make a full-time living out of something where the market just isn't big enough to sustain them all; or is somethign else going on?

    I just typed some 'War & Peace'esque diatribe about the nature of people often involved in the sport and the problems with Forum based debate (i.e would you say the same things face to face?) but have deleted it as I can't be dicked to get into a debate about it

    LOL. I know what you mean. If i was still training I'd just ask the guys who were on the fight circuit. I have a hypothesis that any forum will reach a point where there are such a high number of regular posters that rational debate on the least emotive topic imaginable becomes impossible. I also have a second hypothesis that when that point has been reached, recovery is impossible even if the number of regular posters drops again

    PS. You have a PM

    For me the best ones were the 2 feuds (ok arguments) that actually ended in fights:

    De Souza vs Atalla (FCFN 1)
    Darrin Richardson vs Andy Foreman ("took it outside" at an FX3 event)

    Ha ha I remember that, not sure they 'took it outside', I thought Andy steam-rollered him in the foyer ?

    I recall thinking it was quite disrespectful to the James Bros'
