#203: Watch UFC

22 Jul

I’ve been in the vicinity of people watching UFC before (for the fortunately uninitiated, UFC stands for Ultimate Fighting Championship), but due to the fact that I hate the entire concept, I haven’t actually watched a fight before.

And hopefully I never will again.  It baffles me, it really does.  I get that men (and apparently some women) like violence, and I get that some of them think fighting is cool.  I understand there’s a whole video game industry supporting that interest.  But these are real people.

If you know what the appeal of watching grown men (who seem to have sacrificed some mental functioning for the chance to get big and strong, if the ability of the fighters to speak intelligently is any indication) get beaten up, bleed through their mouths, and “grapple” on the ground in a way that can only be described as reminiscent of porn, let me know.

Otherwise, the only UFC I’m going to be watching from now on will be in the form of Pete on Friends.
