I just had a nice long discussion with my sports journalism professor. The main purpose of the meeting was as a networking opportunity, but within that, we got into my love of MMA, something he was already well aware of. He told me how back in the day, he would frequently spend money to watch a big boxing match. He has resigned himself to the fact that boxing essentially has one foot in the grave at this point, but has yet to jump on board the MMA bandwagon. He, admittedly, hasn't seen much of it, but has deemed it more brutal and less technical than boxing. I've spent a semester with this guy, and he's an open minded guy that knows his shit about 99% of sports and has a very well-known name in the business regionally. He has told me flat out that he doesn't hate the sport, and that his non-appreciation for MMA probably stems from his lack of understanding. So I pose this question to you - before I complete this course, I want to take the time to show him one or two MMA fights featuring CURRENT fighters that best exemplify all the skill and excitement of mixed martial arts. What fight, or fights, would you show a brand new viewer, a potential fan who is already immersed in the world of sports, to make them begin to fall in love with MMA?
