    I watched my first UFC fights around 2000 on a VHS tape that one of my friends had. I didn't watch it again for about 15 years. Then, around 2014-15 I started watching again, pretty much every card they had, for about 3 or so years. Nowadays, I watch about a card a month. I'd watch more, but you have to set aside 5+ hours on a Saturday evening just to watch it all.

    My favorite fighters are Donald Cerrone, Nick Diaz, Lyoto Machida, and B.J. Penn.

    I used to watch old Pride matches a couple of years ago on Fight Pass and some of them are brutal.

    I watch every weekend pretty much, i didn't like the look of it before but that was before they changed some rules and made it a little more family friendly.
    I like Poirier a lot, his last fight with the Hangman made me a real fan of the Kiwi's too. Ferguson, Justin Gaethje ..so many fighters i'm a fan of.
    The older brutal fights i don't like, i seen one where headbutts were allowed and Khabib was there mauling the guy under him with them.
    The upcoming Khabib fight i'm looking forwards to, hoping to see Nate Diaz again, Diaz v Masvidal II would be good! :)

    I'm more of a boxing fan, heavyweight division. With the the UFC I wanna see a good brawl, I'm not into the whole technical/grappling stuff. That's just not exciting to me. Speaking of boxing. My man Iron MIke is coming back baby! One classic uppercut to the chin will knock Roy flat on his back!




    Edit: I'm not dissing the UFC in any way trust me. There have been some epic battles. Lyoto Machida is probably my favorite UFC fighter of all time. That crane kick against Randy Couture was a straight up Mortal Kombat fatality!

    I first saw it on VHS in the late 90's. I didn't care much for it. Too violent with no rules.
    I then caught up with it again when The Ultimate Fighter debuted. I only saw the first season but the fight between Bonnar and Griffin was one for the history books.
    I then didn't keep up with it at all except for some clips here and there until 2012. I remember the first full event I saw was Silva vs Sonnen 2.

    I barely watch these days. After the sale it's just not the same anymore. They're throwing around belts like they're candy. The Reebok deal took away some of the personality of the fighter's as well which just hurts the overall product.
    And I can't get my friends into it.

    But my favorite fighter is Robbie Lawler, even he is probably at the end of his career. His comeback to the UFC was a joy to watch. It is the best comeback run of all time. You can go watch every fight from the win over Koscheck up to the loss to Woodley. Amazing run.
    And he doesn't talk trash, just wants to knock people out and go home. And he hates wrestling because he knows it's boring to watch so he has one the best sprawls in the game.

    I don't follow any podcasts, but I used to watch The MMA Beat some years ago. Lost interest when the regulars started moving on to bigger things.
