The difference is that not everyone completely loses all rationale when it comes to their favorite fighter. It takes a certain kind of fanboyism that is comical when you hear the TKD's and BobbyCoopers leading up to fights. You try to talk a little bit of sense into them. You try to tell them that there is at least a possibility that their fighter might lose. Instead they act like a kid plugging their ears screaming "LALALALALALALA I CANT HEAR YOU!!!!"

I like Rashad. He had a chance. The way TKD talked about this fight deserves to be shoved in his face. He's a good poster when he's not talking about Rashad or Jones. But he asked for it.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Gustaffsson maybe? I have no idea. When Rogan said 'stacked cards with a main event annihilation' I couldn't help but agree.
Hah...hah I was laughing at that. Think he said "assassination," though.

All in all I wanted to see a five rounder and I got it. Rashad fought well, but he fought to survive. Still a moral victory I suppose. Main thing I got from this fight is that JBJ is extremely confident in himself, however he leaves openings which can be exploited for the next challenger(s).

I'm sure Hendo will be more than happy to step up.

He's a big boy who brought this on himself. Some of us have been trolled by this guy for months. Your a fan of a fighter cool, just don't behave like a jackass to those that aren't. The guy created a mob and now he's just going to mocked for a little while.

Actually, he's not going to get mocked.

Any purposely baiting posts towards him to get him upset will be treated like any other baiting posts and will be infracted.

You can tell him he was wrong and all this, but "mocking" and purposely going after him won't be tolerated on any level, be adults.

That's probably the most impressive 4 straight wins I've seen in a long, long long time. He is an animal I'll give him that, and when you consider he finished 3 of those 4, it makes it even more impressive.
id say thats the greatest 4 fight win streak in the history of the LHW division.

thats 4 past champions who were considered the best in the world at some stage.

Definitely the correct thing to do, although to say I'm not at least a little tempted after all the neg rep and trash he talked to me for saying Jones would dominate would be me lying, honestly.

I'm sure there were neg reps and trash talk going both ways (I've checked reps recently, so I know), and if there were sig bets he has to honor them, and that's where all the "he is wrong" trash talking shows, please refrain from doing such things on the board - it can only cause tension and problems.

Fine As far as I'm concerned the issue is done, however.

Next PM or neg I get from him, you and I are having a conversation. It's all well and good to lay down a moral law, I just wish it would have happened on page one not twenty eight. This tension could have been nipped in the bud a long time ago.

We could police it that much, but then nobody would be free to express themselves, there's a fine line between debating with heat and purposely trying to find a member to bait them.

As for a conversation, anytime you want my PM box is open for anyone who has any issue, it's why I'm and others are here to help.

If Anderson Silva retains his title, Canadian Psycho is on my list along with a few others. Just getting it out there. If he loses then I will take some time off.
