The thesis of your statement is that Damarques Johnson is a C-list fighter and that this is a huge step down from the atypical Mike Swick opponent. The problem with this statement is his victories have been against Marcus Davis, Jonathan Goulet, Ben Saunders, and Joe Riggs who don't appear to me to be of a much higher caliber then the aforementioned Johnson. Really the only fighter you could argue that Swick has defeated that is above the C-list would be Dave Loiseau, and that is a bit of a stretch.



So if you don't like Mike Swick beating up the C-listers, then what exactly are you a fan of? Are you like a Chicago Cubs fan who roots for the fighter as he loses to the bigger more talented fighters? Are you a fan of his dreamy eyes and strong jaw bone? Did he save your dog from a cougar attack?

Such apoplexy for a middling fighter is just weird.

When Mike Swick fought Marcus Davis, Davis was on a 11 fight win streak. Goulet was on a 3 fight win streak. Ben Saunders was on a 7 fight win streak. Joe Riggs before that fight was 3-1 in his last 4 fights and that loss is against Matt Hughes and his win before the Swick fight was against Nick Diaz.

Marcus and Joe Riggs were serious contenders at that point in time. Mike Swick was actually supposed to lose to Riggs. Ben Saunders was also being thrown into the contender label.

But your knowledge on MMA probably doesnt go that far back. And you only know what you see on ShtDog.

And ACTUALLY my post was responding to YOUR question about why Damarques is on a UFC on Fox card And i gave you the proper response. I SAID ABSOLUTELY nothing about it being a step down or step up.

So why dont you buzz somewhere else and find someone else to Bug.

And just because a fighter isnt number 1 doesnt mean he cant be my favorite. I like the way he fights. End of story.

Man, Swick filled out. So happy he got his weird ass stomach disease in check. He's looking so much thicker now. That profile shot between both of them shows the difference. Just look at his bicep and upper shoulder...he is going to murder him.

Well if Mike Swick loses tomorrow i am probably gonna get a little blow up boat. Drive to the liquor store. Drive to a lake. And just let the tide take me wherever it wants as i drink my rum out of the bottle and stare at the stars all the while thinking about the meaning of life.

As to that one guys post... No i didnt actually get sad. But i dont want to see posts about how Johnson sucks and has no point in being on a Fox card in the same thread about how good Swick looks this time around. I found it annoying and a little bit tasteless.

I wouldnt come in to a thread where someone is incredibly stoked on their fighter and them finally being back and then me posting about how the opponent has no business being in the UFC. I could make a separate thread if thats what i wanted to talk about.

BUT thats me.

21 wins is impressive, or it is until you list the names - Paul Taylor, Jess Liaudin, Jason Tan, Pete Spratt, Shonie Carter, Forrest Petz, Mike Vaughn, Jason Hathaway, Doug Gordon, Craig Gunder, Andy Normington, Brandon Wolff, Ryan Thomas, Dan Barrera, Charles Blanchard, Kenny Stevens, Rick Delvecchio, Reggie Pena, Kuniyoshi Hironaka, Paul Georgieff, Dan Chambers.

I look at that list and I don't think "watch out GSP we got some badass title contenders coming around".

Yeah I should really focus on the past and not the present. I mean presently I can't watch serious contenders Joe Riggs and Marcus Davis fight. And Ben Saunders...boy nothing says not a C-list fighter than Bellator prelims which is where he last fought....on the Bellator prelims.

Didn't ask a question. It was a facetious statement in an ironic post.

Who said he had to be number 1? I'm just confused by your little hissy fit.

*Facepalm*

Well i guess when you become a fan of MMA in 2011 its a bit hard to know what was going on before then.


Keep talking about GSP or whatever you were doing. I cant waste anymore time on a person that thinks where a fighter is today is the same place where they were 3-4 years ago.
Its not like there is a point to your blabbering.

Cant you go make a different thread look like a Sh!tDog??

Please?? Itl be the only Favor i ever ask of you.

Lol

Do you even remember what you write??

You were claiming i made a statement i didnt make and i corrected you. What in the world are you talking about?

Is this how you troll people??

Well Bravo. *Clap* *Clap*

Nothing gay about having a Man Crush.

It just shows that you are comfortable with how straight you are that you are able to express your Admiration for another man.

Not to mention



How can somebody not be excited to see this guy fight in top form.


+

I always thought it was bullshit when guys act like they cant tell if a man is good looking or not. You gotta be seriously insecure to pretend some guys dont look ugly.
