my thoughts exactly
Commenter “SmartHippo” on the Sherdog.com mixed martial arts forum:
My feelings towards MMA are kind of similar to my feelings toward metal. I love metal, and I respect it. I do, in one sense, take metal seriously, and have great respect towards the musicians involved. However, I don’t take it too seriously, and if it can make me laugh, that’s a good thing. Metal is often ridiculous, and that’s a good thing.
Some matchups just amuse me, in a good way. Like Kimbo Vs. Houston (if it happens).
Part of me takes this matchup (Couture/Coleman) seriously, as I respect both fighters. But another part of me just thinks it’s Metal as fuck, in the funny way. And that’s a good thing.
With some metal you just laugh and throw up the devil horns. Same thing with MMA. Just laugh and enjoy the ride.
