I love MMA fans. Heck, I’m a fan of MMA fans. Despite the sport’s stratospheric growth over the past decade, the fanbase has somehow retained its almost-cultish solidarity.
That’s something you don’t tend to get within the fanbases of mainstream sports like soccer, football, basketball, etc.
I shan’t lie. I’ve been known to get a touch giddy when I run into someone else who appreciates my sport, eager to swap views and test the depth of my new friend’s knowledge.

The list that follows laments five characteristics that define the worst of our kind. As always, feel free to add to/improve on my list in the comments section.
