I got the chance to catch the last two big UFC fights….you know UFC…where guys (and sometimes girls) are getting it on with each other’s fists?
Let me tell you….the fights are wildly entertaining…i mean who doesn’t want to see someone get the SHIT kicked out of them. Hello, Fight Club? But just imagine Fight Club with 3X the fans, the cheers, the exposure, the awesome. I think you are talking to the converted.
The one aspect about the game…..do we call this a game?…….about the UFC sport is the homoeroticism involved. Since this is so regular boxing match, other fighting techniques are allowed and highly encouraged, to take down your opponent in 3-5 rounds. This unique mix of fighting skills and discipline can do the trick, to name a few….like Jeet Kune Do, Sanshou, Judo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Damn. That’s a lot of syllables.
A lot of these fighting techniques involve wrestling, leg wrap arounds, squatting thrusts….should i go on? No, i get it. Wrestling itself is very homoerotic with those tight leaving nothing to the imagination leotards and the obvious fighting moves. But with UFC, the more and more popular it gets, the more and more exposure this fighting style receives, thus making this homoerotic fighting really cool in the eyes of millions.
After watching a couple of fights, it is pretty cool to witness the awesome intensity, masculinity and straight up beat downs some of these fools get. SO ask yourself this….with the dramatic surge in UFC popularity leaving bars standing room only on Saturday night fights and the mainstream broadcast thanks to FOX…..is this style of homoerotic fighting going to permeate into everyday life. Good GOD I hope so.
Can you imagine?
Bar Brawls, Throwdowns, Rumbles, Gang hootenanies…..all would start incorporating these fighting tactics, making every confrontation a possible UFC show. Awesome. I would just feel bad for the profesional UFC fighters because when Joe Smoes start embracing your fighting style….it would kind of decrease your level of BadAss. They just wouldn’t seem as cool when BuBa down the block can take out a legit UFC fighter with one Jiu Jitsu move. Still, the world would be a much more entertaining place…..
