9 Out Of 10

Posted 12-01-2007 at 10:40 PM by johnfromthe219
"I can beat Jon Fitch 8 of 10 times." -- Karo Parisyan

--Shogun would beat Forrest 9 out of 10 times--

--Serra got lucky...9 more times and GSP would win each--

--Jardine beat Liddell...WTF I'd bet Chuck would beat him his next 9 tries--

Does this just infuriate me or is there anyone else out there that feels the same way? I decided to rant about this after what [B]Karo Parisyan[/B] said about Jon Fitch, I figured a fighter knowing that there is always a chance that when you walk into the octagon you can lose. But no, he goes and says something unintelligent like this. I ask you Mr. Parisyan: what statistics are you basing this on? Have you in the past beat Jon Fitch 8 out of 10 times? I also ask have, you ever even fought Jon Fitch? I'll answer it for you and the answer is NO! You want your title shot, but I think you should now have to prove in some way you could beat Jon Fitch 8 out of 10 times. Heck, give me 1 out of 5 then you get your shot.

Now to the poster that decide for there argument to say "oh well such and such will beat such and such 9 out of 10 times..." There has been an epidemic of it this year with all the upsets that have happened. I just ask of you, please for the love of god, Budah, Allah or whoever you do or don't pray for - never say 9 out of 10 again.

I thank you in advance,

Johnfromthe219

Great post...as this is a thing that has been frustrating me in this, the year of the upset. Serra did not get lucky. He caught GSP, followed up, and won the fight. That night Serra was the better fighter. Thats ALL that matters.

The whole 9/10 thing infuriates me. I always thought that things were settled in the Octagon.

Excellent post, I have to admit I have used the phrase but it's usually been attached to 'accept it'.
