Amen bro! The reaction to GSP's victory over hardy is indicative of the kind of people that are holding the sport back. They are not animals they are athelets first and foremost....you dont get some one screaming at tiger woods to get a hole in one.

Jon Jones has said it best ' i take no pride in breaking veras facial bones' In response to idiotic questioning by the interviewer


Its hillarious that people think mma is boring when an athelete tries to execute a great gameplan but thinks its awesome when a second rate fighter like kimbo slice beats up a bum. If you think something like Frye v takayama (sp) is awesome but gsp v hardy was lame then your not really an mma fan

Being exciting is what makes a sport legit? Whoever thinks this has never watched a baseball or soccer game. The most boring aspect of MMA is better than anything that can ever happen in either of those sports. Baseball is America's past time and how many people are up in arms about it being boring? MMA is boring to the ignorant fan who should be watching a cock-fight instead of MMA.

Football is an awesome game better than the handegg game you guys play. Watch the sheer drama of a penalty shoot out and you'll understand just howdramatic football is

It's extremely boring to watch, as is baseball. But that doesn't mean it's not fun to play. I love playing both. But they are boring to watch and there is no debating that.

A great gameplan can still be a boring gameplan, the two are not mutually exclusive lol!

I don't wanna se Kimbo beat on bums or Jon Jones break bones. Infact I'd much rather not see anyone get injured in the cage ever!

Fact of the matter is what people find fun is subjective and everyone have different ideas, there is fun grappling, boring grappling, fun standup and boring standup.

If you think I'm not a true MMA fan because I found GSP vs Hardy to be 25 min sleep pill then fine, what ever I don't care, and I don't need you to validate me as a "true hardcore fan" because I don't give a shit about other peoples definition about what "true fans" must be like. I know myself and I know what I enjoy watching and thats all I need to know.

I didn't enjoy GSPs fight and I voice criticism because I beilive we have the right to do this to athletes regardles of what sport is concerned.

The real question is, how does one have human cock fighting? There's human fighting and there's cock fighting but human cock fighting? The only reasonable answer I can think of is 18+ and a horrible image so I'll keep it to myself.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Agreed with OP's post. I used to hate Machida for the very purpose of his lack of engagement/entertainment value, until I came to terms he's just an effective winner and eventually accepted the fact he's a bottom line effective fighter.

I think the issue with GSP for "some" fans at least, isn't as much the monotony of his fighting strategy, but that he's so dominant that no one poses a challenge. He's so far ahead of his competition in his division that his fights lack the anticipation factor. Once he butters in that first TD, you know the fights over, because if you can't stop GSP's TD, you're losing, so following the opening TD, you're just waiting for the inevitable outcome, like arriving at the appropriate floor of an elevator ride, as oppose to enjoying a roller coaster, anything can happen fight. GSP is too good for his division.
