Sportsmanship

ok I have not seen many MMA fights but those I have seen after the fight in I would say 90% of those I have seen the fighters embrace and show each other lots of respect for two guys who 30 seconds prior were trying to tap or knock out each other. I think this is very important in the sprot. how do the rest of you feel about this????

I agree to a certain extenet,if theres a guy i realy hate I mean hate enuogh I would like to fight in a death macth then after the 15 or 25 minutes are over you feel you didnt complete your mission and have to look this man in the eyes across from you the last thing you want to do is hug him or even touching him without hurting him.But most matches arent fueled by anger there fueled by money,and believe me for the right price i would enjoy hugging him after the macth shit ill even kiss him if its enough money on the contract

Sportsmanship is incredibly important to me. That's the one reason why I don't like BTT. They don't disrespect their opponents, but they don't show them any love either. Take Big Nog vs Cro Cop/Coleman, after the match CC and Coleman were just standing there and BTT never never even acknowledged them. Then after a few minutes they just left.

Sportsmanship is good for the company. It shows future fighters what to look forward to and shows them that you can be excepted. I do however like jackasses from time to time, guys who talk trash before, during and after the fight.

trash talk is all fine and good makes things interesting.. but you can still trash talk and show your opponent respect after the fight

If i was chuck i'd forfit the title and knock tito out everyother PPV. He doesnt dhow sportsmenship which is horrible. It seems the martial artists have respect the wrestler's don't. Maybe because the sport demands it. Look at all of hammer house.

Did anyone see the Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Fabricio Werdum. This is a perfect example of respect. Rodrigo won and held up Werdum's coaches shirt. Showing respect to his opponent. WHo had just lost his coach. This is what we need. Not meatballs like hammer house. Trash talking after fight's and insulting legends like Kerr, just because doctor's wouldn't clear him to fight.

I think that a person needs to have sportsmanship no matter what happened in the fight. A martial arts fight should be two titans, fighting against each other with everything they have. Leave it all in the 15 minutes of the fight. If I get knocked out at 4:59 of the third round, when I come too, I'm going to give my opponent a hug, cause he damn well earned that knockout.
