MMA is here to stay

On Saturday night, EliteXC and CBS brought us MMA into our living rooms and controversial stoppages aside, it showed us how great a sport MMA really is. The fight between Scott Smith and “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler was electric. The back and forth action of punches, leg kicks, knees, elbows and wrestling was far more exciting then anything boxing can bring to you on a given day. The way it ended was very disappointing but the people still got what they needed to see. This was a fight that catapulted MMA into the mainstream if it wasn’t already there (I tend to think that it already is). Make no mistake about it, the UFC is the king of MMA and always will be as long as Dana White is president, he knows this sport better than anyone and is the guy doing everything to spread it around the world and make it mainstream.
