    I find it telling sports like Boxing and MMA are more popular with the middle class than the working class, at least from my experience.

    Confirms my suspicion most people who watch these sports are chancers who've never been close to being in a fight in their entire lives... but seem to enjoy watching others fight.

    I don't think you'd be saying that if you saw the kinds of people that attend bare knuckle boxing matches.
