    Yeah, I'm pretty interested in it. Really wish the UFC would change their scoring system so that things like what happened last night in the Rampage v. Machida fight doesn't happen. They should either just go to a "pick the winner overall" (instead of by round) system like Pride used, or at least use a 20 point system where you can score truly close rounds at like 20-18 and then a lopsided round as 20-15 or something like that so that winning two close rounds doesn't overcome being totally dominated in the third round.

    At first I thought, holy crap, BF Culture, hoping this would be about the Museum of Modern Art in NYC.

    God help me, how could I be so delusional? That's like looking for your dream home in a trailer park.

    I couldn't agree with you more!

    Aw jeebus. That's what I was thinking, too. I don't know who should be more depressed...me or Pcad.

    I still like boxing better. I sorta got into it when the Gracie won a lot. I like watching when skill beats brawn, but nowadays I just see a bunch of brawn.

    It's an interesting scenario, but like many hybrid things in life, the particular sections don't stack up to the real thing (like a hybrid bike is neither mtb or road). I'm particularly unimpressed with the boxing skills. I still watch though.
    “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
    ― Muhammad Ali
