WWE Hall-of-Famer Roddy Piper says that though he loves and respects mixed martial arts, but there are two things keeping the sport from gaining mainstream acceptance.

1) Too many guys getting taught mixed martial arts that shouldn't get taught
2) Fighters don't know how to train properly

You check the video interview below

I have to say I agree.

We have all seen the guy at the gym who shows up and after one class would swear to you he could take Anderson Silva. As more people watch MMA they start to think they are educated enough to even now what they are talking about. Its why watching the UFC at a bar is borderline painful. Its why I find it far more enjoyable to watch the fights with a few friends or teammates.

That sucks Abe.

 

 

I remember you used to be on the OG all the time when I first started posting on here.

 

 

Then you were never on there.

 

 

About a month ago, there was a thread that was on the UG that you posted in; It was immediately moved to the OG right afterwards.

 

 

ShantheMan mentioned that he missed you posting on there.  I think he thought you actually posted on the OG.

Not sure why the formatting screwed up there.  

 

Sorry for the weird spacing.

Yea, not really my flavor over there anymore, used to be pretty cool. Some elements make it not for me though.

 

Miss some guys from there though....

That's why people like you Abe.

 

You go the extra mile and get rid of the weird spacing.

Indeed he is.

I agree with him. Teaching some people even the simplest holds, strikes or whatever can be like putting a gun into the hands of a drunk. TMA schools in most cases (Cobra Kai being the obvious exception =]..) try to reinforce morals and a good attitude.

"... To chew bubblegum and to kick ass... and I'm all outta bubblegum."

One of the most underrated epic movie quotes ever. Piper's the man. Phone Post

it's actually an interesting viewpoint. 

i've always felt like the personal heroes of the sport are the guys that have a good relaxing life, honor, and technique. those things seem to go a long way. and i can't picture myself rooting for gym rats, punks, or any of the other guys who don't really look like they know what they're doing in life, even if they know somewhat what to do in the cage.

Piper can also be credited for the personas on Chael Sonnen and Rowdy Ronda. He was literally (using the term correctly) Chael's coach in trash talk

I just caught this on cable this year.  I LOVE Rowdy, even if it's in a cheesy film.
