We're talking about two different things here.

I think fans of a sport are allowed to voice their opinions, however poorly-informed they may be. We buy the tickets, the pay-per-views, the t-shirts. So I don't think it's hypocritical of a fan to make over-the-top comments about a fighter (although I don't particularly care for it myself).

But Laimon's not just a fan or some yahoo on a barstool. He's a trainer. He's been around MMA long enough to know what it takes to get in the ring/octagon. I think it really hurts his professional credibility to disrespect fighters the way he does when he is unwilling (or unable) to do what they do.

Guys like him are the reason people say "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach."

All that to say I thought he came across as a complete prick.
