What I really get confused with is, during the entrance for the weigh in, the most important momment for the day, where fans and cameras will be waiting, background music playing, guys are using their headphones in a very "casual" way. Ridiculous. Don't you have a better time to listen to music? Or they are just pretending to? Never understood that.

To be fair guys pick walkout music and it's blasting in the stadium and they still wear headphones on their way to the cage.

They might be wearing headphones made by sponsors. Product advertisement? I doubt that though, so it is indeed kinda weird they wear headphones to a weigh in. On the way to a cage, I understand. Get themselves pumped up or block out the noise. But to the weigh ins...?

Yeah and whats up with that? Why don't Brazillians speak German? I mean think of how much better the UFC could of done in Germany if those dang fisttoface Brazillians spoke the language... I mean come on, what is Portuguese anyways???

I would love to be in the position to be standing opposite a Black House fighter with his fists in my face.

If it upsets you, you're probably racist.

So looking at the Rampage/Machida clip - and you're asking if you would prefer to have somone assume a stance and create a bit of distance (hand up) or have some fighter with bad breath stick his face in my personal space (Rampage)?

These guys are 24+ hours away from trying to belt seven types of crap out of each other...

There's plenty to get worked up about, in this world - but creating a bit of personal space doesn't make my top 100
