Started watching mma on youtube in 2005 as i had a lot of spare time on my hands at work - ho-hum.

Back then it was all PRIDE for me, loved the Japanese shows for Nog, Fedor, CroCop, Wanderlai - plus the freakshows of Bob Sapp, Zula etc.

I dismissed the UFC as 'Red-Neck Boxing', but now I believe it is the #1.

So - to the majority of you i am a noob - i have no fighting experience apart from the usual teenage punch-ups at school, and i am too old to start now (and i value my straight nose and full set of teeth).

Lots of fighters I like, some fighters I don't - but too many fighters I don't know nothing about.... Bloody Elbow is my new bible..

playing the game... GSP, Diaz, Dana White

OK, there is a lot of talk about this fight (or cancellation of this fight) and there are still 8 weeks to go until the event. GSP v's Diaz is a fight that sells itself, but a bit more publicity...
