At the time I am posting this.

37 Thought it was good or great
13 were indifferent
22 did not like it

More people liked it than not even if you put the indifferent people in with the people who did not like it.

Well, "technically" he said the word "great", and only 17 people thought the fight was "great", 20 thought it was "good but not great" and the rest are below that.

I'm not sure why anyone would want to get so technical but, yeah.

I thought the fight was just filler, non-important and I'm not a fan of these tiny guys.

That wasn't the original disagreement though. The original was based off of Toxic declaring it FOTY and that most people here would think the fight was awesome. The numbers do not reflect that. Even if you add in the people who were entertained by it it's a damn near fifty/fifty split.

My whole objection to this has been the stance of Toxic - and several others - that any real fan would have loved this fight. That kind of elitist bs pisses me off. The fight - to me - wasn't exciting but I don't care if someone else found it awesome. I do care when people start making comments about real fans and who should appreciate it or making judgements as to why the people who didn't like the fight didn't like it. It's bullshit.

Can I just say that I am not agreeing with the opinion of this being fight of the year.

It was a fun fight with big implications, both guys took it very seriously and put on a great performance.

It was the fight to crown the first Champ of a new weight division, 'filler' and 'non-important' do not apply.

Obliviously it applies looking at the votes. Not everyone cares about that division, including me.

Your opinion is your own, but others do apply.

I just don't see how weight class makes any difference, and I'm yet to see an argument for why low weight fights are less exciting. A fight is a fight, I like fights.

I understand people wanting to see knockouts, I understand people wanting to see abnormally large men fighting, but as a fight fan, how is two guys going 100mph for 25 minutes not exciting?

I don't see it as an opinion, I think it comes with the territory of enjoying a good fight.

I also dont really understand how people consider themselves fight fans but only want to see large men fight.

A fight is a fight.

I was entertained throughout - good fight. Not my FOTY though. I really enjoy the flyweights (As well as the other lighter weightclasses) because of the speed and the technicallity of the little guys

BTW I still think Uncle Creepy beat Mighty Mouse the first time around, oh well

Yours is an opinion. The same as everyone elses. You just dress yours up in elitist bs.

Obviously it's an opinion, as it's my opinion along with many others opinion, you saying it's not an opinion is nonsensical and incorrect on a factual level.

I don't like watching tiny guys the size of my 12 year old cousin speed around each other for 5 rounds, it's as simple as that. That division is meaningless to me, I have 0 interest in watching fights at that weight, they do not entertain me and obviously others as well.

You disagree, that's fine, but just like any other subject, yours is only an opinion and so is mine and others, you'll just have to accept that.
