9. The suspense when an underdog pulls off the win with a sub or ko.

10. A good excuse to invite friends you don't like over and "practice" some painful moves on them during the intermissions, while justifying injuring them well after they tapped by saying "Chuck wouldn't have tapped if I put him in that, don't be a wuss."

11. They Dont Talk Too Much Bull**** And Give A Boring Fight. Not Unlike Some Boxers Who Talk All Smack And **** But When It Comes To Fight Night The Fight's Hella Boring. The Best Example Is Floyd Gayweather Talks All Night But Doesnt Bring Excitement.

how do you know this?

Boxers take a sustained beating over many rounds. MMA fighters get hit in the head far less and KOs often occur much quicker when they do occur. I went to an event once that featured both MMA and toughman style boxing. On this occasion it was boxing that ended up looking like the far more brutal sport.

However, when you include things like stomps and soccer kicks, I'd say MMA is pretty brutal on the brain.

Yeah, but the guy's still a ****ing scumbag. This is like the debate over whether done king is good for boxing. He may make big fights, but he also ****s around far too much. Kinda like the UFC, though the comparison is not the greatest, i admit (cant think of a better example).
