This blog is basically a copy and paste from one of my more recent posts. I wanted to make it a blog so everyone can see it all the time. Maybe some of the children on this forum will realize how immature they sound to the people who use rationality and objectiveness.
Why do people dwell on Roger's weaknesses so much? Nobody is saying he is a perfect fighter with no flaws, but the fact is even with less than average takedown defense he still wins fights! Of course he has weaknesses, every fighter has weaknesses, there's not one person claiming Roger Huerta in invincible or infalliable. It doesn't matter if he got "dominated" for 2 round (which is complete BS anyway because he didn't get dominated in round 1 at all), because he still managed to win the fight.
All I'm saying is, it's pretty sad how most of you have to sit here and just keep talking about his weaknesses and saying he'll never be champ, over and over and over again. Does it make you feel good saying that or something? Instead of just giving him props for a close 1st round and a great 3rd round domination and finish, people always have to add in all the negative things too, very few of you can just give him his props without saying something negative. Do the words "Jelousy" and "Defense Mechanism" mean anything to anyone?
Definition of Defense Mechanism:
Definition of Jelousy:
Most notably used by Freud in his psychoanalytic theory, a defense mechanism is a tactic developed by the ego to protect against anxiety. Defense mechanisms are thought to safeguard the mind against feelings and thoughts that are too difficult for the conscious mind to cope with. In some instances, defense mechanisms are thought to keep inappropriate or unwanted thoughts and impulses from entering the conscious mind.
For example, if you are faced with a particularly unpleasant task, such as giving Roger Huerta his props, your mind may choose to forget your responsibility in order to avoid the dreaded assignment. In addition to forgetting, other defense mechanisms include rationalization, denial, repression, projection, rejection, and reaction formation.
- RATIONALIZATION - "Guida dominated and outclassed him. Huerta got the win but Guida is the better fighter."
- DENIAL - "Huerta got lucky with that knee and Guida is the better fighter"
- REPRESSION - "Huerta didn't do anything all fight, except land one lucky knee"
- PROJECTION - "Guida should have won he was landing bombs the whole fight and Roger had no answer for his TDs, imagine if Huerta never landed those knees. Guida wins 9/10 times."
- REJECTION - "Huerta will never be champ, he didn't win that fight, Guida lost it."
a feeling of grudging admiration and desire to have something that is possessed by another, such as good looks, talent, resiliancy, money, fame, and a nice looking MMA record.
This doesn't just apply to Roger Huerta either, but he is the most extreme case. Other cases include when Anderson Silva fought Travis Lutter, and when Forrest Griffin fought Mauricio Rua.
