Dang, I almost can't believe it.

Maybe we could all introduce ourselves, or hold hands and sing a song or something.

haha I was wondering where the MMA thread went, I eventually searched my post history to find it.

Anyways this is pretty cool, now that there's a whole forum I wonder if we should make new threads instead of just having the one big catch-all. On another board I post a lot on there's one for UFC, one for Japanese promotions and one for other North American promotions like Strikeforce, Affliction or whoever.

I'll miss the single threads you guys have created. For me, I am a general sports sports fan, so I like information about them. And though I may catch a TUF episode on SportsNet or some actual fight on TV, I would not consider myself a fan of MMA.

Despite this, I have been a steady consumer of the MMA thread for quite awhile. For me it has been a good capture of the sport; news, analysis, and hilites. I would like to thank you for creating something that is usually a worthwhile read.

I'm oilers_guy_eddie... I like to keep things standing up because I hate rolling around with sweaty dudes on dirty mats. I'm here to, you know, put on a show and knock people out. I'm here to prove I belong here, and if he messes up my hair I swear to god I'll bite him. It's gonna be a war.

uh... I think I discovered the MMA thread around V or VI, sometime around TUF 7. I didn't know HF had a good group of MMA fans, and I had been reading MMA forums at other boards.

I do kind of like the all-purpose mega-threads. Keeps things lively. I don't know if the MMA world has enough going on, or if there's enough participants here, to sustain a lot of smaller threads.

I think we have to find a way to get Mr Mastodon Farm back here.

I also think we need some Wild fans here, to round out the NW division. We could tell them that Tim Silvia is actually Derek Boogaard...

Agreed 100%. It was a heck of a run, always a good read. I only managed to post once in a blue moon. You guys always had good posts. Ensane, colonel_korn, Captain_Cunney, Pure Rock Fury, _Shogun_, LiquidClown, Boston Bruno, BigE, chapel113x, Daaaab's, MrMastadonFarm, cneely, and the odd post from parabola and Matt MacInnis... then lots of newer faces as the threads endured. Then, who could forget the contributions from Pred303 and shaneprimm.

awesome!

i was scared a bit when i saw the thread was taken away, then I followed it to where it was moved..

whew..

i like this thread rather than sherdog etc, b/c i find it less ignorant and stupid, which is impressive considering this is ON HF.. hahaha.. but seriously it's a nice calm place thread as opposed to the "real MMA forums" where they take themselves too seriously

I'm pretty sure 90% of sherdog is under 13 years old.

It's great to see an actual forum for MMA!! Let's all try and keep it respectful (as we've been doing for a while) so it doesn't turn into Sherdog version 2.0, something nobody wants.

Job: Controller

When you started watching MMA: At the beginning, back in the bare knuckle open weight tournies. Drifted away from it for a while in the late 90s, didn't buy too many PPVs for a few years (except Tito/Chuck) but TUF 1 brought me back.
Fights that got you hooked: Royce Gracie vs. Kimo

HemskyFreak83, DaaaaB's and Captain_Cunney - good choice on Hazelett, (but Hemsky, his name's Dustin )I forgot about him with his recent absence. That guy is awesome to watch. I'm looking forward to seeing him get healthy, and hopefully climb the ranks.

When you started watching MMA: Montreal is a mecca for amateur and professional boxing and mma and I actually caught a live smoker before seeing it on tv. It was under pancrase rules and it was decent. I liked the free shoot rules of it over boxing and judo (the arts I was and still am into today) but the quality was obviously lacking and didn`t think much of it.
Fights that got you hooked: Pride, Sakuraba vs Royce Gracie.

Same here, I'm hoping he continues to rock the Evan Tanner'esque beard going forward also. Dude has a very very bright future, his submission game is already at the very top of the MMA world, IMO. As he continues to develop new tricks he will be even more dangerous (his standup seems to have improved tenfold already). Here's to him hopefully holding the WW belt in the future.
