Causual fans talk during the entire undercard and wait for the main event. When the main event arrives they say "Who's fighting in this again"?

when you are watching fights at b-dubs or wherever and the main event is over and all the freaking retards leave even though they show pre-lims afterward, because they dont care about mma, just seeing Brock Lesnar or whatever side show they came to watch fight.

-When people cheer based on race/size.

Example: I was at the bar watching UFC 71: Liddell vs Jackson 2, and as I loosened up from booze I started talking to people about the fight..

Me: "Who do you think takes it, Liddell or Jackson?"

Person: "Jackson!"

Me: "Oh yeah, why's that?"

Person: "He's jacked."

Me: "Did you watch their first fight?"

Person: "They fought before?"

*walks away*

Seriously, casuals at the bar are retards. They were cheering for Rampage because he was wearing a chain, spoke like he was from the streets, and due to the fact he was ripped.

The worst part was the fact Jackson won, not because I dislike Rampage but because the retards thought they were prophets or something! I predicted Jackson to win based on a stylistic comparison, which holds some semblance of logic, and watching people cheer/pick based on race and size just boils my blood.

yeah, i hate when people cheer for people based on race. I listen to Sherdog radio and TJ De Santis always brings up that once he was watching Trevor Prangley fight Yuki Kondo and people were chanting "USA, USA". They were assuming Prangley was from the US. Really just dumb.

Nothing really wrong with supporting your fellow countrymen.

However, chanting USA! USA! USA! when you have a guy from South Africa face a guy from Japan, is pretty stupid.
