Ronda to win by armbar or vicious KO.

Hendo to remove Machida's head but I want everyone to remove Machida's head. Unless he's fighting Jones.

Koscheck to lose by KO.

Brendan Schaub to have another hilarious KO face. He's the new Keith Jardine.

My favourite fighter of all time hails from Hawaii. Guess I'd like him more if he was a Eur eh.
I guess it's the unique situation I have with Rampage. I like Rampage. I just like Chuck, Wandy and Hendo more. So often times I was rooting against him. But I still consider myself a Rampage fan. A little different still since you admit you don't like Hendo very much...which is kind of in the same category as closet hate IMO.
But I absolutely think nationality plays a major part in fandom on this board. It's really an extreme difference between the thoughts on this board compared to all others I have ever seen. This board is has by far the most non-American(don't know any better way to put it) then any other board I have been on. With that there crazy differences in fighter love and hate.
Maybe you don't see it or it just appears normal to you. But it's not and there is something to it. I ain't mad, rep who you wanna rep. When I say that it's not directed at you personally. I don't think nationality is the only factor. Machida has many fans all over and he isn't the only one. However I think you are underselling it's impact on this board as a whole. Again though, there is nothing wrong with that, it's not a negative, it's just how it is.

I'm European.

Dan Henderson is a twat.

Would I think he was a twat if he was British? Probably not.

Do I care that I'm prejudiced? Not even slightly.


This is sport baby. The only avenue we have left for prejudice. But im sure the PC police will soon put an end to that.

I'm from the UK and love Hendo, got over the Bisping KO pretty quick and I didn't realise European people didn't like Hendo? Man is a legend to me and one of the all time greats of the sport.

Really hope Hendo wins preferably by KO, mainly because of his current win streak and I feel he deserves one last shot at UFC gold.

Also wouldn't mind seeing Rousey lose just for the pure hilarity and to see Dana's expression

My dislike for Hendo isn't closet hate at all. I dislike many fighters that are British also(Used to be a big Daley fan, now I can't stand him. Bisping is better than he used to be, but I still wouldn't class myself as a fan, especially with the bitching at Vitor lately, who, I also don't like that much :P ). Do I closet hate them as well? I actually really love watching Hendo fight. It's just he's beaten so many of my favourite fighters (Shogun, Fedor, Wanderlei), and I don't warm to him in interviews. He comes off as a bit of a dick to me.

Maybe the love for Hendo on the big American boards has more to do with nationality than it does here

Great response. Rep your fighters proudly! Who cares why you root for them? Doesn't matter if you root for fighters based on hair color, as long as you rep your fighters.

EDIT: KRY, no doubt about it American's love Hendo more because he is American.

The problem with the LHW division is there are so many legends that put on fantastic fights. You are always going to have a guy you like vs a guy you love. I love Chuck, Hendo and Wand but I also like Shogun, lil Nog and Rampage. My favorite HWs are JDS, Fedor, Nog, Cro Cop and Mark Hunt. I don't limit my fandom to nationality but I won't hate on someone who does. I can also understand it adding to the fandom. Someone you like anyways might get the extra brownie points for being from a certain place. I root for Matt Wiman cause I like his style and he is from Oklahoma. But I still don't like Frank Trigg even though he went to OU and wrestled for OU. That alone won't get you my support.

Carmouche win by KTFO
