Default Thing you hate about live events

Recently I went to my very first live MMA event. It was a smaller promotion, that is run by the gym I go to. Even though it was small, there were still some things I disliked about live as opposed to it not being live. That being said, I loved being at the live event.

1. In a lot of the fights, the person on top would get like side control, and people would instantly start to yell at the ref to stand it up.

2. I do not think I have ever seen so many out of shape, 40 year old white men with Affliction and Tapout shirts in my entire life.


So tell me, what else do you dislike about live events?

Mass brawls in the crowd at the last event someone from our gym was fighting at that I went to.

Huge sterroid freak shoving his bird about during UFC80.

I hate the fans that don't know anything. The last event I went to I was sitting in front of 5 middle aged drunk guys who kept talking about all of the fighters like they knew who they were.

If the fighter was young they said he sucked and had boy strength and would get beat. I was tempted to bet them because I knew who would win but I didn't.

They also booed whenever the fight went to the ground and say grappling is for pussies and real men strike.

I hate live events. First of all, I don't drink. So, sharing space with mass amounts of drunk dudes punching into the air as they scream "Get'em!!! Knock'em out!!!" and women screaming in high frequencies already turn me off a tad.

But on top of that, I've seen a few fights break out in the crowd. Wow, who would have thought? Feed a bunch of losers alcohol while they watch combat sports and they break into violence.

And of course, the misunderstanding of the fight game, etc.

I would love to sit with a Japanese crowd someday. It seems to be much different.

The fans, the first event I went to was excellent but I was stuck in front of a bunch of pricks or maybe it was just one prick in a group who though he was funny and would shout out the most ridiculous crap.
