    Important: Before You Post On This Forum Read This!

    This forum is an experiment. I personally have no taste for MMA, I'm a boxing guy...BUT, I do realise that MMA is the wave of the future & there ain't no stopping progress, though I don't know if MMA is actually progress for this boxing board .But what the hell, let's give it a shot!

    All our regular CBZ guys many who are into MMA understand how it works in these parts & the code of conduct that is enforced here. This is directed at the MMA fans who will be coming to join the board,.

    Most boards are a juvenile jungle of insults by a bunch of keyboard warriors. That does not cut it here.

    You're here to DISCUSS MMA, PERIOD. It's not about trying to get over people with insults. This is a MMA Forum not a, WORK OUT YOUR PERSONAL ISSUES Forum!

    FAIR WARNING!

    Anybody goes off the rails & insults people or kills a thread with their b.s. I'm just going to ban you. No discussion. You're gone. No trying to reason with anybody - it never works anyway.

    SO ...Be an adult & act like a serious MMA aficionado. ANY crap & your just outta here with no explanation. THINK about what your writing before you post it & think how you would feel if it was directed at you.

    Really the only rule here is no personal insults. We welcome vehement discussion here, but cross the line & curse at or personally insult somebody & I will vaporise you from this board. Screw the pooch & your outta here. That's not a threat, it's a fucking PROMISE...

    Thanks Gor! I still see a glimmer of hope in boxing and one way is by exposure through MMA.

    Anyhow, I know many here, inluding yourself, are not fans of MMA, it's nice to see you swallow your pride.

    And as always, you are king of your domain. I will refrain from insulting anyone unless they are a Montreal Canadian's fan. Of course, you would have to create a hockey forum for that eh?

    I'd like to clarify something. In no way shape or form do I blame MMA for the decline of boxing. Boxing's wounds are self inflicted & every boxing guy reading this Knows exactly what I mean.

    While I'm as interested in MMA about as much I am in comepetive knitting, it is a new, vital, combat sport. The CBZ will NEVER become an MMA site but having one forum for it on the board is appropriate in my view.

    We will also create a separate MMA news wire along with the regular boxing one. As mentioned above we've been lucky enough to recruit a talented, very passionate, correspondent, in Jack R Dunn, who will be our editor in charge of MMA affairs.

    I personally hope we can find a MMA fight or to that is worth the attention span of Gordoom. Hopefully between myself & Dogman it will be possible sometime in the coming decade or 2.

    Re: Important: Before You Post On This Forum Read This!

    i was at the silver reef casino in ferndale, wash. this past weekend with my wife. it just so happened that they were having cage fighting that nite. i ran into promoter patrick ortiz whom i know from doing articles on a couple of his boxing promotions.

    he said he is doing more mma than boxing these days. now the silver reef is a tiny venue and the boxing shows there have sold out normally a month in advance. there were still seats available an hour before the event.

    i went to find my wife and asked if she would like to see the mma fights... she scoffed at that but said she would pay the 55 bucks as a fathers day gift for me to go... she also said that would be a savings as it would keep me away from the black jack tables for a few hours.

    so i went. that cage is smaller than what it looks like on t.v.

    the fights were so so. i did not know of any of the fighters and doubt they were significant. as a life long boxing fan i was actually a little irritated at the very limited ability they showed in either delivering or avoiding punches.

    in one fight i kept yelling to a hometown kid to jab as i was starting to pull my hair out seeing all the opportunities he was missing...then i realized maybe with the threat of being subjected to a ground game a jab could be a bad idea... i still don't know. to me a jab is always a great weapon.

    interesting to finally see close up, but, would i pay 55 bucks again ??

    NO.

    Did they feature that fighter who doesn't have any arms or legs?

    Greg, I believe the jab is the most under utilised weapon in MMA.
