So who brought mma to the UK?
Who was the first promotion aired in the UK?

Either way, do you think MMA would be as big in the UK if it weren't for UFC?
No, not even almost, don't fool yourself.

The Gracies learned Martial Arts from a Japanese person, (and developed their art from 2 Japanese arts)
and they certainly constantly pay homage to the Japanese.

Think however you want, but you're disrespectful.
Respect is the most important lesson one should get out of any martial arts, you should get some someday.

I get exited about the Gracies as you can tell.
We owe MMA to them IMO.

Plus I take BJJ, and love Royce and Rickson.

That wasn't his response, I actually talked to him about it.
I don't think he was using at all.

His tests were at levels so high they were literally off the charts.
*shrug*

The video interviews I have seen, he denied it, and said there was no point in wasting a ton of his money (Sherk) when these things don't get over turned. So he paid the 2500 and took the year off.

Martial Arts was invented in India ... it was developed by people in East Asia (Japan, China etc) ..
