you know i would like to know if i'm alone in thinking that mma has turned into the equivilant of pron for failed actors.  i want to see chad do well, but seriously, it's like when dana plato or cindy brady went pron, it's just friggin over. thoughts?

i've never seen him play football and i've never seen him fight but i think professional athletes at another sport coming in to try mma think they are superior athletes and will have an advantage. Once they get in the ring it doesn't take long to realize that technique and ring experience really does matter in mma and being a good athlete isn't enough.

Eh, ex football guy brings some glamor & headlines, that's cool... but a bunch of blue-chip second generation MMA fighters (Kamaka, Cooper, Ostovich) on that show, that's really cool to see! I'd definitely go if I were there.

That fight's in April, homie

Some fights next weekend in Waipahu though. Monica Franco is another from Jesus Is Lord.

I know it isn't 2003 with ROTR, but I'd say Hawaii is still a pretty good place to be a fight fan!!!

I'm no "Expert" or by any means anybody in the MMA community, but for some reason I have to LOLz when these 20something are trying to school me on "UFC" and local fighters, but have no idea what SuperBrawl is or ever attended an ICON or ROTR fight out here.

Please do your Blog and educate on the history and people who fought out here and opened the doors for these new fighters to have the opportunities they have today.

It would be appreciated Phone Post

I know there are a lot of stories that haven't been told. Some of which... people may even be willing to tell :)

I've been concentrating any writing time of late to Kirik's MMA Hall of Fame project  (I owed him) -- but that's almost done now. Stand by...

keeping in simple, three things imho "killed" mma in hawaii:

1. over saturation and availability of bigger named fighters on free tv (TUF, Fight network, youtube, fb, etc)]

2. local fighters not doing well in away fights (and not just not doing well in terms of fighting, but entertainment)

3. the DCCA--regulation in hawaii--and EVERYONE that touches it right now.

 

solution: (see #3--round them up, free trip to molokai, shoot them in the back of the head, pig farm)

I feel it will never be what it was, even for the bigger show. That excited feeling you got when you heard Saku was going to fight wandy? Remeber that?

Anticipating a fight that was going to happen months away.

Now there are days I only know there was a UFC because someone posted it on FB.

But if it does happen again, that would be cool too.
