1.) Demand that she watch.
It is your God-given right to watch MMA and she should too. Ever since days of Cain and Able there has been fighting and someone has been watching, no need to stop now. She demands that you shave when her parents come into town and you do it, right? Why, because what she wants means is important (kinda). Now it's time to make a few demands of your own.
2.) Mention Guys Like GSP.
Three, sometimes five, five-minute rounds of two chiseled, sweaty hard-bodies go at like animals. While you enjoy your 6-pack, she can enjoy his. Some of you guys might not want her to compare you to the best fighters in the world. But if she watches with you instead of nagging about not spending time with her it's all worth it in the end.
3.) Compare MMA to Lady Gaga.
Your girlfriend may find the sport a bit violent. When this argument comes up, let her know it's not nearly half as brutal as listening to Lady Gaga all the way to the restaurant you took her to last week. Seriously bro, that man-chick is more detrimental to those who are exposed to it than anything you'll see inside the cage. This will undoubtedly get her on the defensive - the prefect time to compromise and invite her to the cushion next to yours.
If the past three options have failed, as great things sometimes do, here are your last two means of getting her to watch MMA with you.
Hey, it works for dogs, right?
5.) Pay her.
Women do all sorts of crazy things for money. Chicks have been giving lap dances, lifting their tops, and having sex for money long before you were ever around. Throw some money at her and enjoy the fights. Just be sure to let her know that it's not as bad as it sounds, you won' think any less of her and her dad never has to know.
