I think MMA needs to be taken back to the days of the Roman Empire personally, where there were no rules. No holds barred, kill, or be killed. As time went on everyone has gone soft and I'm not sure why, we should've got much tougher. I want it all back, soccer kicks, knees, face stomps. You name it, I want it back and in the UFC. It's time to go back to our roots, as Martial Artist, and bring the raw nature of this sport back.
I really want to see fighters FIGHT. No more glorified sparring sessions. I want to see fighters send a clear message to their opponents. I don't want to see fighters hugging at the start of the round. To hell with that. I want to see fighters beat their opponents senseless, so that they don't dare step to their thone again. They don't even entertain the thought of stepping in octagon with them again. Like when you're in a street fight, you go full on. You slap them so darn hard so that they don't dare try test you ever again.
It should be mandatory that fighters fight at their natural weight. You weigh in on the night of the fight. You weight 190? That's tough Shiz buddy, eat something and get to 205 or fight at 190. If you're a LHW, but you weigh 225 the night of the fight, too bad buddy, you're fighting at HW.
Soldiers put their lives on the line everyday for us in the name of war, fighters should put their lives on the line every time they step into the cage in the name of MMA. If you don't have what it takes to be a fighter, to lay it all out there, you should find another profession. It should be about doing it for the love of the sport, not the money. I'm sure we could sacrifice a few bodies here and there.
