I noticed what you are talking about when I was stationed out in the midwest(OK, and Missouri). ALOT of people out there wear it and seem to think they are tough, especially when they drink.
One time at this sports bar outside Ft. Leonardwood Missouri and I heard these toguh guys talking about MMA in the bathroom. I was on leave at the time and I was SHITFACED! I have to mention there was like 4 of these dudes and I was with one of my boys. They were talkin stupid about mma and acting like they knew what they were talkin about. I could tell instantly that they didnt know 1/10 of what I knew so I figured I would **** with them. I remember seeing flyers around that whole week for a live local event. It was some midwest fight league. So after im done pissing, I start to get loud about mma and these dudes are kinda being wise to me at first. So being a drunk maniac, I snap on them and start to tell them that I am the Midwest Fight League MW champ and that Ill ****in kill anyone at the bar and that me and my boy are mma fighters and we will kill everybody. You should have seen these dudes faces. It was classic. They thought I was the real ****in deal.
Anyways, yea I hate tough guys taht wear the tapout gear. Dudes around Boston that wear it, dont seem to be as ridiculous but Im sure there are still a few clowns.
I really cant go to a bar and watch the UFC. There are too many dipshits that dont know anything and it gets on my nerves. I seriously almost get into a fight every single time cuz these dudes are so annoying. And no Im not one of the tough guys with the tapout shirt on lol
Im sure some dudes on this forum are guilty of it tho lol
Im in Porno's
