Sorry if you don't like the finger being pointed in your direction, but no one whines more about what goes on in the world of MMA than the audience who watches it.
MMA fans complain about every matchup that is ever booked, regardless of its entertainment value or divisional relevance.
If a fight looks too good on paper, someone else should have been given the opportunity. Examples include GSP vs. Diaz, Aldo vs. Pettis and Aldo vs. Edgar.
If a fight doesn't look tremendously exciting, but it has major impact on a division's title scene, fans label it as a snoozefest. Examples include Mendes vs. Guida and Evans vs. Davis.
As an experiment, I want you guys to start looking through the comments section anytime a major fight is announced. Read some of the ridiculous complaints that appear on nearly every article.
It's not just the matchmaking that fans are quick to criticize. Let's not forget how commonplace it is for fighters to be vigorously booed inside the Octagon while they jockey for position on the floor.
Grapplers aren't the only ones booed. Fight fans seem to have a tendency to boo action from the flyweight division too. Despite the frantic pace and incredible skill of Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez, I challenge you to find a flyweight contest where they weren't booed.
Not everyone has an appreciation for the technical skill of ground work, and it would be unrealistic to expect otherwise. However, if you want to watch two guys striking, tune in to K-1.
To those of you who enjoy the sport in all its glory, we're glad to have you on our side. To the complainers who don't like reading this slide, I'm not exactly worried. You were probably going to whine about it anyway.
