I've watched some video on UFC (Ultimate Fighting Contest) and for the life of me I cannot see the point.I've had discussions with other Martial Artists about its value and there seem to be only two stock answers:
- I'm told they enjoy the contest
- They are of the opinion that it improves their self-defense
Why would anybody want to go about getting hurt?
I have, over the years come across a number of Judoka who seem to want to hurt others but I've never found them to be much of a challenge and any pleasure they do get seems to be short-lived. In fact the less you react to such players the more upset they seem to get till eventually they make a serious error and loose. They are usually so busy concentrating on hurting they forget good technique.
I'm afraid that from what I've seen, most of the players in UFC seem to fall into this category. They are not particularly skilful, just brutal. I just don't understand it. But whatever gets you going I guess so beyond that I can't really comment.
