We don't neg you because you have a different opinion. We neg you because you don't know how to express an opinion without insulting everyone who believes differently ...and for your inability to defend any of your statements when someone asks you to back it up ...and for preferring to insult people rather than discuss anything with them ...and for being unable to do anything other than be negative and argumentative to a scale even I find baffling ...and for generally being an unpleasant person to talk to.

You see the people on this board - most of us - don't neg people for having a different opinion. Read this whole thread. I was arguing against something some other posters really believed in. Do you know how many neg reps I received? Not a one. And I argued vehemently. Things got heated and nothing. Well... nothing besides the odd private message.

If everybody is neg repping you and not the other people presenting unfavorable opinions then you might want to consider that the reason has more to do with you than us.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

I liked the fight however I will say that the lack of power is definitely a downside to the division (just like the lack of speed is a downside to the heavyweights). Even though the movement and back and forths were amazing you don't get the same edge of your seat feel because the odds of the fight ending while standing is much lower. However once they start rolling you get that affect since they could submit each other at any moment (assuming the 2 fighters are good at subs).

Was the Benavidez-Johnson fight good? I'd say yes. But was it that exciting that it got me sitting at the edge of my seat? No. The only time I got really interested in the fight was the 1st round ( to get a rough gauge of who is going to win the fight ) and the 4th round.

Maybe I'm judging the division before it really has the chance to set off, but thats just what I feel right now. I think that the flyweight division is just too extreme. How many fully grown men weigh around 125 pounds? How many of these men are good enough athletes to be UFC fighters? How many of these athletes would want to choose the path of being a UFC fighter?
Probably need a longer time before I can determine how I truly feel about the division though. If there is more talent flowing in and better finishers, then I'm all good.

Edit: On a side note, I absolutely hate it when one questions another of being a fight fan just because they have difference preferences in fights. Lets give an example. You like rock, while I like pop. Then you say I'm not a real fan of music just because I like the mainstream pop nowadays, which absolutely sucks. However, its just because my taste for music differs from you. Same for MMA. You prefer watching flyweights fight, while I have preference for those that are able to finish a fight. Not saying flyweights can't finish a fight, but you have to admit the probability is lower.
Worldwide? I would say a pretty good amount. If you look online you will see a lot of different numbers for average height but 5ft7in seems to be about average for a guy (worldwide). And doctor recommended weight for a guy thats 5ft7in is ~150lbs. And with weight cutting a guy thats 140lbs maybe even 145lbs could make 125. So its not really that far off average, so you can get some almost average sized guys, some muscular short guys and some skinny just over average height guys.

The problem with your argument is I haven't insulted anyone (at least not directly or in a harmful way) and I have backed up everything I've said. That's your opinion if you believe that and you're certainly entitled to it but it does'nt make it true either.

Oh and don't worry, I won't neg rep you for your post.

Oh... neither of those are problems because neither of them are true. You have insulted most of the posters here in generally sweeping insults aimed at the masses rather than individualizing them. And you have absolutely not backed up a single word you have said. In fact - in multiple threads - I have seen people ask you a direct question and you will directly reply... with a comment that has nothing to do with the question. These are both verifiable. Anyone can look up your history of posts and see how I am right.

And, believe me, I'm not worried about a neg rep from you. One - your rep is so bad it might actually increase my rep at this point. Two - is you're on ignore so even if you did it wouldn't register. Three - you negging me is just a sign that I don't have my head totally stuffed into my own ass.

Any other easily debunkable or laughable things to say, sport?

More BS, I just happen to have different views about MMA than you (and some others) and you can't handle it. That's what this is about.

Can you guys take this to PM? Seriously, nobody wants to hear about reps/your personal argument when discussing a topic, that's why "off-topic" banter isn't allowed on the board.

I agree, I'm open to anyone who wants to whine about differing opinions on MMA and he said she said through PM.

Infractions will be handed out if more bickering continues. Take it to PM's. I won't shut the thread down but I will hand out infractions.
