The Thing that Pisses Me Off Most After Events

I'm sure we've all heard it. Maybe some of you have said it...and will stop after this. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Its the "9/10" saying. Who came up with that crap?

"Yeah Serra got lucky with one punch, but 9 times out of 10, GSP whomps all over Serra." Well guys, I was always under the impression that a fight decides who beats who...not who is the favorite going into the fight.

In MMA, there are no such things as lucky punches, kicks, etc. You throw a strike with the intention of hurting your opponent. Serra threw that right hook to hit GSP. GSP tried to slip it and got caught, the rest is history.

So for those saying Guida beats Huerta 9/10...come on. Guida was winning the first two rounds, I'll give you that. But with so many different ways to win (and win quickly), how can anyone say Guida wouldn't get finished in the 3 Round again?


My advice is to take your panties out of a bundle, take your skirts off, and be a man. Give credit where credit is due: Huerta and Guida for a badass fight.

I agree, give credit where it's due. As much as I like Clay and no matter how much better he was the first two rounds, Roger hauled arse and fought back and found a way to win. They have a bright future ahead of them.

I don't say 9/10 as such, and I give Huerta credit for his win but in many cases (this fight, matt serra vs GSP, etc) I'd still pick the loser to win a rematch and a majority of there fights. Is that the same thing?

No, not at all GMW. If the rematch is set up, there is nothing wrong with saying Guida/GSP would win vs. Huerta/Serra. If you think their skill is better, you gotta pick them to win. But the whole 9/10 thing is what doesn't make sense.

Serra beat GSP standing...who would have thought that? With so many ways to win in MMA, its impossible to say GSP would beat Serra 9/10. There are just too many things that could happen in a fight to make blanket statements like that.

I have no problem with people saying Guida was winning the fight but if you are going to be dumb and say that Guida should've won if he didn't get KO'd that makes no damn sense.

I mean there is no proof he wouldn't have caught him with something else if he didn't get hit him with the knee.

While I agree with you KDS I have to say the thing that pisses me off more than that is the declaring guys as the greatest fighters ever after one fight.

I mean Matt Hammil lost a fight and became the 2nd coming

BJ beat a FW and is the greatest MMA fighter ever again

Randy Couture defeated a guy with a destroyed back and a unproven guy and Was the greatest UFC fighter ever and the greatest HW champion of all time

And the worst of all

Keith Jardine basically kicks Chuck Liddell while they stand still and He is a top 5 HW and a world class striker.
