You dont need to be an outstanding person to detect the pathetic...ness of others, im pathetic in another way....kind of wasting my life trying to do something while also not putting nearly enough effort to achive it - thats pathetic, as is devoting your life to other people doing shit...and getting a picture with them.

Hating people with no ambition or drive kind of helps me not fall into the same thing.
Do you realize how pathetically sad you come off??? Not to mention insecure. You really should stop spending so much time judging others on such silly things as them wanting to take pictures with famous people they watch fight. Especially with facebook it has become convenient to have photo keepsakes of life moments you like.

I wouldnt mind having a photo with Fedor and even having him sign it or something. One day when i have kids i can show them pictures and tell them stories to go with it. And photos have become basically souvenirs to some. So are people who buy souvenirs pathetic??

You keep saying "as a kid i used to" but tbh your words make you sound like a kid.

No you're not this badass non-pathetic made up pathetic whose only flaw is he's gonna take 5 years to become the next anderson silva instead of 3 lol. You're pathetic because you spend your spare time giggling and raging on the internet like a teenage girl over what your favorite celebs said today, just like the rest of us. The fact that those celebs punch people doesn't make it any less pathetic.

What makes you a bit more pathetic imo are your teenage angst and dumb idea that hating random people you don't know is somehow going to motivate you and make you a better backyard ufc fighter lol.

I dont hate people who make fists i think they're a bit dumb but whatever floats their boat. I don't yell their name and slap myself to make me angry while hitting the bag, or whatever it is you do.

A lot of those people could be far more driven and successful than myself or you, drive has nothing to do with it. I've seen millionaires, doctors etc. do the same, they just enjoy mma as a sport and hobby and are very driven in their chosen careers.

Are we having a health debate? I'll admit it, I pretty easily get carried away with something. some one says something snarky, and I latch on to the hook 9 times out of 10.

Back in the day Mick Foley came to my college (i was still watching wrestling, Yes I know we suck).

and Mick use to say he wanted to be the role model for the uber nerd.

At no charge at all he signed a auto free of charge, for 6 bucks we got to here him do a little presentation for about an hour and I really had a good time meeting someone who entertained me for a long time.

Does that make me a total loser? If it does, being a winner is over rated. I likely have missed the point, but I don't see the harm in wanting someones auto graph.

I'd be happy to have Dana White's auto graph. ^^. If nothing else just have a holy symbol that can repel pride fans.

You make a lot of assumptions.

Anyway, people take motivations from everywhere what ever works is the correct way. Ill take a picture next to somebody i know, to collect the memory but im not gonna go up to someone i have a fan crush on and bother them for a picture....its lame, its sad...kind of desperate for a dude in there 30's to be looking up to someone in such a way, respect sure...not this nuthugging shite.

Meeting the guy is cool, dont see much in having him write his name on something for you. Presentations and engaging with his fans is great, letting them know the man behind the show...thats cool.

Sir, Washed up pro wrestlers like Virgil charge 20 dollars for an Auto graph. (no I didn't pay LOL).

And he's a total nobody. If you looked up nobody his face would be next to it in the dictionary.

On a philsphical level in the greater scheme of things does the practice of getting someones sig really matter?

Sure I suppose not. It's a time honored tradition that spends several culutures. And it comes off as very shitty to laugh at it.

Again I'm fine with someone acting like an asshole, but just be aware. Your going to upset people. I have these talks all over the web when someone wants to do something shitty in a non shitty way.

can't be done. can't be sugar coats. it is what it is.

"how do i tell someone their fat and ugly with out being a jerk?" you can't. I'm not telling you, you can't tell them their fat or ugly. I'm not even condemning you for wanting to be an asshole. It's not only your God given right to be one, hell it's practically your duty.

In the greater scheme of things it means nothing, but the little things do bother me now and then - I didnt expect it to get such a reaction

"does the practice of getting someones sig really matter?"

Does the practice of bitching about it really matter?

it's a forum this is the grand big top of shit that doesn't matter LOL. there's never been a bigger waste of time than a forum. Waste of time are fun if not familiar how ever so here we are. Is there a point to eating choclate? watching sports? Playing video games?

If you weren't expecting it i'm clearly doing a good job

Moral of the thread,

Being fake is okay. As long as you're doing it for money, attention, and undeserved title shots. But the moment you start being fake in order seem geniunely likable, even though you're a dominant champion, I will hate every thing that comes out of your mouth and you should LOSE YOUR BELT.

Moral of the story is.

If you come off as a nice guy then you are going to be liked. Whether you play a bad guy to put more money in your pocket AND your opponents (Dont kid yourself Chael Sonnen put millions of dollars in Andersons pocket with his act) or not. Or some people will not like you.

If you are a douche-bag but pretend to be nice so your liked but since you are a douche-bag your douchiness always seems to find a way to come out in the open. You are going to be treated as a fake douche-bag.
