MMA is tame compared to the independent wrestling promotion hardcore wrestling

Hardcore wrestling, which anything goes, is far more dangerous.

Watch The Wrestler. There is a hardcore match in it. That match is actually quite tame to some of the shiat that is out there.

Yeah, well South Dakota is the NAMBLA of states.

Yes let's immediately start listening to what a pastor has to say in the news today.

Except no has a hard drive full of mma.

Except for maybe joe rogan.

Anyone else think that sportifying it, ruined it?

We should trust this man. He's a Republican, a politician, AND a Pastor. I believe he knows what he's talking about, at least when it comes to child porn.

SD wants to stay in the 1950's so they're okay with this.
 
2013-02-26 02:07:31 PM  
MMA needs to be regulated in every state.  We have several MMA "schools" in our area that's run by a guy who might have gotten in a fight once.  The guys who go to these schools end up getting bones broken and major lacerations.  I'm surprised no one has been killed yet.

Yeah, but then it went mainstream.  I watch Ultima-Hardcore XD Wrestling.  You probably haven't heard of it.

It's pretty sad when someone is so small-minded as to think think a man is into having sex with kids just because he's gay.
 
2013-02-26 02:14:19 PM  
MMA is more like the red-headed stepchild of sports. Barely tolerated.
 
2013-02-26 02:18:16 PM  
Just another quick story: I have a friend who was a semi-pro wrestler.  He was a pretty big dude, and decided to make the switch to MMA.  He went to one of our local "clinics," and the "coach" basically gave him strategy tips like, "let him hit you in the head, it'll break his fingers," and "just knee him in the nuts over and over again."
 
2013-02-26 02:18:47 PM  
Well they do have one thing in common. Their is a lot of video of both on this guys hard drive.

How come I'm not surprised that this abortion of the state has a giant retard speaking up about these things? He probably hails from a town of 150 in the middle of nowhere and considers Applebees the best thing ever when he treats his long suffering wife to a meal. But it can't cost more than $20 and he never leaves a tip.

I hate this place, it's a haven for the densest motherfrakkers I've ever met. They even drive like morons.

Are any of the participants there without their consent? No? Then it doesn't even come close to child porn.

Tyrone Slothrop: Are any of the participants there without their consent? No? Then it doesn't even come close to child porn.


No, no, no; you've completely missed his point.  It's like child porn in that child post crosses a some societal, normative, or moral line.  I mean, in that respect you could compare anything to child porn.

That pink lawn flamingo?  That's the child porn of lawn decorations, according to your HOA.

Running a red light?  That's the child porn of driving a vehicle.

Hanging your toilet paper so that it hangs down instead of over?  That's the child porn of keeping your bathroom stocked.  If you have guests and you've run out of toilet paper entirely, I'm pretty sure that's double child porn.

Having been T-boned by someone running a red light, I actually agree with that.  Innocent people can be injured and scarred for life because of one self indulgent asshat.

In before the "mma is a joke" crowd?

Aww crud.  Some other people kind of already got to that...
 
2013-02-26 03:11:21 PM  
That is utterly ridiculous.  MMA is not the "child porn" of sports.  It's the "rough gay porn" of sports.  Sheesh.

Could you post a smaller image so it disappears between the pixels, please?
 
2013-02-26 03:27:36 PM  
It's not *the voluntary participants in MMA who go in knowing the risks*, it's the legions of paying customers braying at the moon, bug-eyed at the spectacle of a couple of grown-ups(?) standing toe to toe, beating the living snot out of each other. It's these folk' who need regulating.
 
2013-02-26 03:32:27 PM  
It's more the Shemale on Female porn of sports.

Don't judge me.
 
2013-02-26 03:33:27 PM  
Everyone seems to have child porn on the brain these days.
 
2013-02-26 03:34:26 PM  
Actually, the law was proposed because of a person who died from an unofficial MMA bout.  Walked out of the arena after the fight, then went kaput shortly thereafter.  I can understand why something like this should be regulated, but the wording... c'mon!

Getting hit by someone who runs a red light means you weren't driving defensively and need to have more road awareness.

Is there really that big a difference between MMA and boxing? Punching someone in the face until they are unconscious is somehow less barbaric than twisting someone's arm until they give up?

If MMA is child porn, what's boxing? Barely legal teens?

/they share the characteristic of me not watching either

Psst, hey, mark, it ain't real, yo. For real. I mean, for real it isn't real even if it's real to you, dammit. See, they just pretend to be hurt. The blood? What they do is take a couple aspirin before the show, and nick themselves with a razor blade. The blood will flow from just a tiny cut. The stuff they get hit with? Here's the thing, buddy, they figured out a way to hit you with stuff without it actually destroying your body. The tables? Thin plywood or precut. The barbed wire? They just don't have a lot of barbs. Sorry, but it's not real.
 
2013-02-26 09:22:31 PM  
Now that my sarcasm is out of the way, this guy may be on to something. There's a "MMA school" that's local to me, and they have a bunch of kid classes. That seems a tad bit shady to me. There probably is some weirdness going on, so, yeah, maybe it is the child porn of sports.

True, have no idea it was from Penny Arcade or would I have assumed it would be since Penny Arcade is not the internet as a whole as some people would try to imply.
