There’s nothing like a look back in to the old school. I nice nostalgic trip down memory lane can often brighten up a bad day at work, bringing back the days when things were a little simpler.
Take for instance MMA, back in the day when there weren’t so many controversies the sport seemed a lot more pure. Of course everyone was roiding their nuts off at that point, but the old school UFC was built on blood and sawdust.
The old school years of The Ultimate Fighting Championship were a brutal and ruthless time to fight in. It was more about sheer will to overcome the opponent as fighters used vicious methods with a much more loose set of rules.
Knees to the head of a grounded opponent, stomps, groin strikes and head butts made for great entertainment, but what effect did it have on the fighters?
