It wasn't that long ago brennaman was derailed Rick story on a days notice.
Notice how the UFC cut him anyway? That's why I support Jones decision and fighters who look out for themselves first and foremost. This shit is a business nothing personal.

The reason he was cut is because he's boring. If an exciting dude has a bad performance, he'll probably get another chance. It's a TV show at the end of the day, and if the low level fighters are boring then there is no reason to have them around.



Thanks to Ape for the sig.

Because people find him an exciting fan favorite which was pretty much his point. :P

After what he done to Story I have mounds of respect for this dude and would have liked to see him get another chance, I think he earned a bit of loyalty from the UFC. Hopefully they let him go just to get some wins in a lower show and then bring him back - they do that sometimes.


Thanks to Leakler for the sig

And if you don't like wrestling or boxing, what do you like?

You want everyone to do kung-fu and TKD?

Guys use wrestling and boxing because they're probably the two most effective, efficient styles of fighting on the planet.
Yea, I get that it's an effective style, I get that it works, I just find it boring.

Generic college boy wrestle-boxer drones throwing haymakers and shooting for power doubles every now and then. I just find them incredibly boring and bland.

No offense GR, but there's entertainment to be found in 'personality' and 'flair' and it's called World Wrestling Entertainment. I can understand that say, Alan Belcher is much easier to market than say, Tim Boetsch, but at the end of the day what matters (or should) is who has what it takes to be at the top. Be it a wrestle-boxer, striker, BJJ fighter or a Judoka, what matters is skill and whether or not you can keep on winning. Not who has the most interesting personality.

Just my two cents of course.

When I said flair and personality, I meant directly related to their fighting style, not necesarily their actual real personality, lol. Doesn't really make sense, but it does in my head.

Condit for example. 28 wins, 26 finishes, berserker in the octagon, wicked guard skills, dynamic stand up. He's got that flair in the octagon which makes him stand out from the rest of the wrestle-boxer drones.

Ah, I see your point now.

I personally find each fighter in the UFC to be unique in their own way. You never know what's going to happen with Ellenberger. He puts on barnburners. Hendricks can end the fight at any moment with that left hand. Brenneman was relentless with his wrestling and I never saw him in a real boring fight. He's not the toughest guy that the UFC had, but he had his own style too nonetheless. Just my opinion though. Even if a few guys have the same style, you never know what's going to happen. It's MMA after all, and that's why I love this sport

lol this is one of the silliest things I've ever read. How dare they throw punches and use takedowns.

Oblique kicks and saltos only! Sew murch koolah ermagerd

On a sidenote I can't be the only person who laughs every time they see someone use the term 'college boy' as an insult.

****in college boy, think yer better than me? C'mon cleetus get the truck we got ourselves some city slicker college boy thinks he's better than us!

Can someone explain this one to me? I've seen him KO Fitch with big left but that's really about it. The TKO win over Amir was early, imo and then he tko'd Brenneman. Am I missing anything else other than his early WEC career?
