MMA Pet Peeves

- This 'finishing fights' fetish
- Kenny Rice
- When fans boo the grappling realm of a fight, or anything aside from two guys standing and trading
- The inclination that anyone who came from TUF is a joke
- Dana White
- Fans that view organizations over fighters
- Fans that try and act hardcore by proclaiming that Pride is superior to the UFC
- Bandwagoners/Nuthuggery
- Mike Goldberg
- People that take to Dana's word as though it were Gospel
- People blasting Lesnar for having a background in pro-wrestling, ironic because the majority of the same crowd cling to Saku, Barnett, etc.
- Publications coming out with rankings when they are completely subjective
- People who use MMA math to determine where fighters amass
- UFC nuthuggers
- Elitist pricks that claim to have been following MMA since UFC 1
- People that approach you looking for a fight in a bar solely because you're wearing MMA memorabilia
- People that hate on Kimbo because he hasn't fought elite level competition yet. An integral part of any fighter in the early stages of their career is to promptly gain experience, and while Ken Shamrock may be handicapped as a fighter, he still has name recognition and it's the best possible match-up they could feed Kimbo right now
- Organization vs. Organization debates are foolish and completely irrational
- Blind fanboys that praise fighters imprudently (BJ's nuthuggers are the worst...)
- Mixed Martial Arts not 'Ultimate Fighting'


Yours?

People who wear MMA memorabilia. I always approach people wearing it and try to fight them.

These are from the very basic knowledged people but:

1. "Kimbo is the best fighter out there."
2. "Do you do UFC?" (this one gets me)
3. "That fight sucked. It lasted 15 minutes. There wasn't even a knockout."

Stand up fighters who decided to just do enough on the feet and not try to win.

People complain about Lay and Pray all the time but no one says anything about when guys refuse to get close to their opponent and just keep the distance and do enough.

Arlovski vs Werdum and Cote vs Almedia are the types of fights im talking about.

Did I say that? Anyone that goes the duration of a fight isn't any less demeaning than those who happen to finish their opposition, which is ideally the point I'm trying to make. 'He couldn't finish ______' is often thrown around.

Nice, I expected to see at least one brain-dead peon come in here with a comment like that.

I think foot stomps are annoying. Is there actually any point in doing them as they will never finish a fight? Winner via foot stomps have never happened to my knowledge.

People comlpaining about decisions and ground game

If you're from TUF you're a joke

People who think a fighter isn't good just because they don't like them.

1. crowd boos during grappling or boos if the fighter is not from the country where the fight is taking place.

2. standup with the fighters throwing fake jabs and then backing up, trading in this way BORING (I still wouldn't boo though).

That's what I can't stand. When a fighter looks like they are fighting for the decision. Playing it "safe" and doing just enough to get the win.
