MMA in the past few years has been a tire fire of fights that should’ve been. If you think about it, it’s much like The Simpsons and their legendary tire fire.
It’s a problem that the city of Springfield just ignores and we as MMA fans just can’t seem to ignore. To this day people still talk about fights that have passed us by. People are STILL talking about Fedor vs. Brock, they are still talking about Anderson vs. GSP. Yet MMA fans just aren’t happy as a whole, granted not everyone is miserable with the state of MMA, but the majority of fans are and this is a problem. MMA fans are hooked on the past and while things may have been more entertaining back then, reminiscing about the past, yearning for the days that are no longer, will do no one any good.
Maybe as MMA fans, we should take a page out of The Simpsons. Maybe we should ignore the tire fire, maybe we should just pretend it’s not there and just go on with our lives. What I’m trying to say is, maybe we should just cherish the little positives that MMA gives us, no matter how few and far between they are.
Look, Ronda vs. Cat didn’t happen when it was suppose to happen, they had a staredown which might as well have happened in the SEG days. Now, we are finally getting that fight, so why not relive the magic of the first time Ronda and Cat stared down and get excited? Yeah?
