The 2 biggest things I
The 2 biggest things I encounter when trying to convert fans (especially older guys):
1) They are not sloppy brawlers w/no real boxing experience. Their striking style is modified to defend takedowns & leg strikes. Therefore, they can’t maintain a traditional boxing stance or throw excessive jabs which leave them wide open to TD’s & kicks.
2) The grappling/rasslin aspect of the sport takes a long time to fully appreciate. It will seem boring for several events until you understand the nuances. Most often, their skillsets neutralize each other’s offense causing lengthy stalemates. Or the risk/reward isn’t worth it so there are no dramatic sub attempts w/o major positional advantage or striking damage to set it up.
Oh and #3…..YOU’RE A FUCKING FAGGOT. Cock shit balls.
