It is the folly of American media. Get the people who really have no clue what they are talking about. Also, notice how the highlights at the begining they ONLY showed the girl fight? And At the end they showed the Diaz fight, with DIAZ WINNING? I dislike it, but after 18 years of it, I have learned to get over it. Now during debates I get pissed off, but that is something different.

It really is a damn shame. But that's the nature of the news biz, they like their laundry dirty.

It's sucks to know that they just represented MMA fans in the worse possible way.

Poor job by the fans and the news crew.

The media just makes me sick, I generally avoid watching the news these days, and I avoid almost all mainstream media coverage of mixed martial arts; especially when Bill O'Reilly is involved.

"Now we are known for our violence in a good way?" Is there even a good kind of violence?

My favorite part was the 2 girls: "We're not an advocate of bloodshed, although we don't hate on it either if it happens." Excellent use of the english language, word usage and just general mind-blowing intelligence.

Casual fans are total crap. Don't believe me, go to a live even and just people watch for about 20 minutes. I've not felt that much anger in a long time.

This is why i watch the fights at home. I hate being in a bar with MMA on...so many fools that really don't know what they're talking about.

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.

Now now, go easy on the casual fans! Remember we were all casual fans once upon a time. We all started out like idiots (like the people on that video) at first. Then as time went by we started to learn a little bit more about the sport.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
