Recently in the comments section of a blog post, I saw Kid Nate as a reader some questions to sort of gauge when, where and why he became an MMA fan. This has always been something I've wanted to do but past attempts (or observation of attempts by others) has always yielded the "Been watching since Pancrase days" type response. I was shocked at the actual honesty in the poster's answers as well as some others who decided to answer his questions. What I would like to do is build on that and compile something. I believe that BE (minus the trolls) has an excellent group of knowledgeable fans and eager-to-learn novices. So I'd like for people to answer these questions, if not too much trouble. I did modify/add some to the list.
