    Haha no way! I found Tate vs Holm kind of boring actually. Besides Rousey fights, I have to say I like JJ and Miriam Nakamoto (Muay Thai not MMA). In fact, quite a few of the pure MT women are really great to watch
    Might be a difference in preference of what we prefer to watch

    I really can't stand watching MT despite doing it for a year myself!

    I agree. I did MT for 9 years and loved it, but can't watch it. I find the fights too rhythmic and repetitive. MMA has a lot of variety and unpredictability.

    Which is why cage-fighting is banned in Thailand

    Different strokes indeed. Practicing MT is what makes me love to watch it! Especially women fighters. Lots of technique since they often can't rely on brute force

    I think also watching TB just makes me want to get involved and do it again. MMA I know for a fact that I would get taken down and smashed, so I can just appreciate it for what it is without having impulses to get in there...
