He makes a good point.

 

Many MMA fighters have pretty stale, boring personalities and it's painfully obvious when they get interviewed.

 

This is something you really didn't see in professional wrestling, self marketing was really important.

 

Make people give a shit about your fight, love you or hate you, make them give a shit.

Who cares what a fake wrestler has to say?  As Brock learned, there is no choregraphed "fights" in the Octagon or any MMA event.


Your comment is dumb and has nothing to do with this thread. And, by the way, you out-of-shape pseudo BJJ practitioner, Brock won and defended the UFC Heavyweight World Title.

Exactly.

 

Guys like Chael Sonnen, Tito Ortiz or Genki Sudo were excellent showmen and new how to work with the fans.

 

Hell, guys like Chael Sonnen and Tito Ortiz knew how to draw in the fans that hated them as much as the fans that loved them, that's real marketing ability.  Knowing how to play the heel is just as valuable as playing the hero, even more so if you can do both.

 

People can bash pro wrestling all they like but the truth is pro wrestling is what MMA basically sprang from and they've done a lot of things right.  Nothing wrong with learning from their successes and failures.

People should care because the man is a born showman and marketed the hell out of himself. He parlayed his wrasslin career into a hunting show and a podcast, plus he'll probably never have to work a day in his life if he so chooses. He knows how to make people give a shit about him and that's what the interview was about Phone Post 3.0

So you're saying real fighting came from fake fighting..? Phone Post

Pro wrestling started out as real fighting.

It evolved into the theatrical crap that it is today during the early 20th century.

The Japanese side of MMA was started by pro wrestlers who wanted to get back the roots of real wrestling and founded MMA organizations like Shooto, Pancrase, and RINGS.

because fighting along with pro wrestling makes alot of its money due to fan base thats pays to see you. you can be the #2 ww for 3 yrs straight (Fitch) and if your a boring fighter and cant talk, not only are people not going to want to see you fight. you could end up losing your job in the UFC.

You just come on here to argue. You do this in every thread. You make it a point to take a stance against a topic or shit talk a fighter and argue with the majority in the most ignorant way you can find. Phone Post

The pro wrestling GOAT !, fuck Hogan and The Rock !.

As others have said, check out his podcast, much to my surprise it's excellent, esp the rants about fuck all. The interviews with old wrestlers are really interesting esp to Attitude era fans. Phone Post 3.0
