I hate anyone who doesn't have a belt.

I have seen people rag on Clay Guida before using these type of comparisons. Dude will probably never even get a title shot, but he is still one of the msot exciting and entertaining men in MMA today.

Clay may get alot of love from some people on this forum, but don't forget that alot of people in those nut hugging threads critisize Clay's fans and basically do exactly what Plazz is talking about.

Good post plazz, I hadn't thought about that before.

A few fighters I love that will never be in contention or won't be anytime soon: Luigi Fioravanti, Diaz brothers, Overeem, Keith Jardine, and Lutter (I say give the guy another shot, MW division could use him).

Dude is definitely one of my favorite fighters, ever since he put on such a good show against Diego when he looked fat as hell, I was on his junk. I'll also always love Phil Baroni...when he beat Nishijima with a kimura and said that he had just watched a few days ago on tele and that's why he wanted to do it, that rocked.

a lot of divisions have a solid second tier and I love seeing really exciting lower tier fights. These guys know they're not in contention and don't have the fear of losing that makes the contenders take safer gameplans.

I don't see anything wrong with someone not being in contention but I also don't see anything wrong with me letting someone know that the guy they keep saying "totally pwns all and would be teh champ if damn dana would sign him to the UFC" isn't even ranked and probably never will be.

my 2 cents.

Agree. It's annoying when people feel the need to criticise fighters just cos they're not chamionship or even contender status but it's equally annoying when people buy into the UFC hype train and try and tell you something like Huerta's a top 10 LW.

So yeah, I can see it from both sides TBH, especially since I like a ton of fighters that are never gonna get near a belt.

Dude, I fu**in love Guida, Hamill, and Matt Horwhich, I just love to see those guys fight. Especially Horwhich, he has to be one of the most akward fighters out there.

I absolutely LOVE Jung Bu Kyung. I don't care what anybody says. I love the man.

Don't even get me started on Yoon Dong Sik either.

Yea I don't understand why you can only cheer for Anderson, GSP, Fedor and other top guys or young up and comers.

Whats wrong with me liking Mike Swick? I take heat for that all the time because he's not a title contender well I don't really care.

And I don't mind Plazz about Dida because if the guy ever gets a ground game he will be a title contender and if he doesn't he's still a fantastic show.

Ya I agree. I remember I started a thread on here about who your favorite crappy fighter was and it was a hit.




What a stud
