MMA Smacktalk MMA Smacktalk is for all the cheering, jeering, and smack-talking that you want. This is the stuff that isn't appropriate for the MMA Discussion forum. Rules are light, so if you don't have a sense of humor, then don't go here!

I can only speak for myself but I am very loyal to the fighters I like and very loyal to hating on the ones I don't like. The only problem is that the longevity isn't there like it is in most sports. You like a guy then he gets beat down four times in a row and kicked out of the organization, then he's replaced. There is a fast turnaround on mma fighters. It doesn't mean that I don't like Jens Pulver or Chuck Liddell it just means I don't want to see them get beatdown over and over again.

Yes this is very true. A fighter can destroy a divison or an excellent string of opponents.

But if he loses one fight all of a sudden he's overrated. I really hate that about the MMA fan mentality.

anyone else notice this?

You'll probably find that in many cases (if not most) that the fans who do what you say did not like that particular fighter before they lost and are now taking great pleasure in calling the losing fighter washed up, overrated, a can, etc.


Boxing has the exact same fan mentality.

MMA is an individual sport, and it's much easier to turn on one person, as opposed to an entire team.

I also think so.
