MDR Desert Accident: An Excellent Article...

Finally an excellent, more in depth article with real first hand accounts. Kudos to the author for actually going out and talking to people and providing a balanced story. Now I just hope that an off-road publication does some real journalism and has an in depth story from all sides and not just a 1/2 page regurgitation of the incident--Are you listening Dirt Sports Magazine?

A Day at the Races Turns Tragic...

"Nowhere. It is a revolving door at the top of the sport with no one individual dominating his sport in general or in his own weight class. When everyone has the same skill level, no one has any skill."
i don't undestand how you can say that when you don't even follow the sport ,
ever heard of fedor ? undefeated for 10 years
ever heard of anderson silva ? he won the middleweight title in 2006 , and he still has it
ever heard of GSP ? he totaly dominate the welterwiehgt division
ever heard of bj penn ?
ever heard of a country called brazil ? it's where the best fighters are , if you look at the top 10 best P4P in the world , most of them are brazilians , they are the one who dominate the ufc , and also strikeforce not the white americans
no skills ? you just prooved that you don't understand neither muay thai nor ground fighting , it's because you knows shit about those sports , since in america you only have boxing and fake wrestling ,i guess all those black belts in BJJ and judo , shotokan ,takeondo , NCAA division I wrestlers in the ufc don't have any skill , is that what you're saying ? all the title holders in mma today are ranked martial artists , kickboxers or wrestlers , you can't just go to the cage and " brawl " that was the case in the early days , not now
and what about your stupid typical american bullshit that everybody hates about you , i mean when every single thing ends in a racial debate ? what the fuck is wrong with you ? mma is only big because white guys needs something they're good at ? what about those cable deals and high ratings in the middel east , north africa ,south asia and south america ? what about the fact that japan was home to the largest , most watched mma organisation in the world ? (pride fc ) they barely had any white americans , and despite that , it was more popular than ufc , so your entiere " theory " about the growth of mma is wrong , stupid , racialist , and ignorant
and dana white have no business sense ? the ufc was dying in 2001 and worth only 2 million dollars , and it was of cable tv , now , after 9 years , it worth 1.1 billion dollars , watched everywhere in the world , have it's own video games , huge PPV revenue , domesticaly ( us ) , the ufc grossed more than the WWE WORLDWIDE , i guess that's not business sense in your book huh ?
my english sucks , but i hope you get the point ,stop being such an average american , and be a lil bit open minded , i am from a country where WRC is big , and i think it sucks ass , boring, and i can say the same thing about you , WRC is dominated by white people , 100 % of the drivers are white so....
