    Math:

    18 fights + 36 fighters + 10 wins + 15 loses = not sure?

    Do fighters in Alberta take the summer off?

    what’s with all the record bashing? 1-1, 0-1, 1-2 whatever! Shows don’t come much smaller than Hard Knocks (and it is a very good show if you haven’t seen it) They match up their fights very well, unlike alot of other shows, where none of the fights make it out of the first round.

    So basically what people are saying is, if I start my “career” off with an 0-1 or 1-2 record, no one should let me fight on their show because I am a lousy fighter and don’t put on a good show? That’s a crappy statement.

    Now, if you are a 1-5 fighter and have been completely dominated and not shown ANY heart in any of your fights, then yes, time to move on. But to put young upcoming fighters in the dumps because they have a loss or 2 in their first Professional and Amateur fights is pretty weak.

    Hi Travis, I totally agree with you however…. Doesn’t it bother you a little that some people’s first exposure to MMA will come while watching to out of shape bastards swing hay makers at each other until out of fatigue one drops his head and the other, out of pure luck, connects? Doesn’t that make you a little sad that people are going to then say, “Hey, MMA looks pretty easy!”

    I dunno, it makes me sad.

    New fighters need a place to fight and that’s what a show like HK can provide but how many of those fights are going to be quality fightS?

    Travis I am with you 100% seeing as I started off 0-2 and kept getting chances and rebounded. That being said I dont know why people would pick up seaberg as his fights never go 1 minute and he just quits.

  8. TravisHalmrast says:

    I agreed that some unskilled people should be in the cage quite yet, for example, brawlers that just want to fight, and really don’t train like martial artists. Then there are people that just aren’t built for the sport due to lack of heart….which is why I threw the example of a certain 1-5 fighter out there. No disrespect, but if you don’t take yourself seriously, and don’t train hard to be a professional…then you chose the wrong sport.
