You know what MMA doesn’t need any more of? Comparisons to pro wrestling. Every fucking week is another moronic essay by some blogger that grew up watching oiled-up steroid junkies pretend to slap each other around comparing what’s going on between the UFC and Strikeforce to the business antics of Vince McMahon.
What’s the point? Really? I mean, if you’re going to compare the machinations between rival MMA promotions to something, why pick pro wrestling? Is it because they both wear tight pants? They’re both on the same low-rent cable network? Shit – compare them to warring ballet companies or the on-going battle between foul-smelling deodorants.
Get a new metaphor, assholes.
