I'm getting tired of this

I'm getting tired of this annoying trend that seems to be so ever present in MMA, and has been for so long.

It seems that it's impossible to comfortably like or cheer for a fighter without someone coming in and saying that they either would never be a title contender, or champion. And even worst, where they stand in terms of rankings.

Who the f*ck cares, I know I don't. It's leaving a bad taste in my mouth, and making everyone look so elitist.

It's like you can't like a fighter, or talk about them if they're not championship material. Shit, not every fighter is championship material, and certainly not every fighter is going to fight for the gold, or be the next BJ Penn.

I know it's important to compare rankings and fights between clear cut top fighters, but this is being applied to basically EVERY fighter, beit them being top 5 to top 30. It makes it hard to just like someone.

You just can't talk about your fighter without them being immediately compared to the champions of their weight classes, or how they would compare to almost every f*cking fighter in their weight class.

"Fighter A could never be champion"
"Fighter A would NEVER beat BJ Penn/GSP/Silva/Fedor"
"Fighter A isn't even ranked"
"Who has he beat? He's never beat anyone worthy to be good"

I don't care, I want to watch two people fight, I don't want to hear about where he has to be in terms of ranking and what titled he can't win.

All this emphasis on rankings is killing MMA IMO.

With that said, bbjd7, I'm sorry I rag on Dida all the time, I officially don't care about rankings and who can beat who. But him in K-1 is a different story

do you really think we care what you think


j/k you know I <3 ya

heck most the fighters that I really like I dont think will ever be champions or champions again. Heck my favorite fighter is Ken Shamrock so yeah ......

but yeah for me as long as I like the way a fighter fights I could care less if they win or could beat a champ or anyone for that matter. for me also if they have a great Submission game it is a serious plus for me.

another great example is I like "the king of rock and rumble" and heck he never wins lol
...................................

Plazz also you have to remember that you are a separate case though when people rag on the fighters you like it is not that they are gunna be champs but it is that they all just plan SUCK

Yeah totally agree I really like Spencer Fisher and Matt Hamill but they will never be top contenders but I will cheer for them whenever they fight. I like guys who put on a show and are entertaining take Jason MacDonald vs Damian Maia I came away from that fight with more respect for J-Mac than Maia just cos he hung in there for so long.

Word, I absolutely LOOOOVVEE Jung Bukyung, and the man has never won a fight before, yet has put on some serious performances. I think I'll go on a shooting spree if people start comparing him to others.

True, I am a big fan of Hermes Franca, good but never will be champion and Elvis Sinosic.

I defend Elvis as people say "he sucks" but look at who has fought and he matched them. Tell me who sucks more, a fighter who beats lesser opponents or a fighter that is willing to fight the best and comes up to the challenge. Obviously he is not one of the premium Light Heavyweight's like Rampage, Wanderlei Silva etc but he is definitely a good fighter.

Glad that other people feel this way as well. A lot of the fighters I like I know will never even fight for championship gold but I find myself having to defend them as if they could be champs.

Luke Cummo, Joe Lauzon, Spencer Fisher, Michael Bisping. I enjoy watching all of these fighters but at no point in their career will they have a top title wrapped around their waist.

Jung Bukyung wouldn't stand a chance against BJ. He isn't even ranked, **** him.

Guida is one of the most loved fighters on this forum. Every time he fights, all I hear is people gargling on his testicles. I'm not gonna hate on anyone for doing it, but he gets all the love he deserves and more.
