Why do you care? Whether they're gay or just appreciative of Machida's aesthetic beauty, what's the problem? He's a handsome fellow. No shame in saying that.

Doth protest too much.

I wanna see Machida knock Hendo out.

I wanna see Ronda win by tko.

I'd like to see Faber pick up a win.

I'd love to see Koscheck's face planted onb the mat as he counts sheep.

Just hoping for some fun fights for the rest, don't care who wins or loses.

It's also been proven that attractive men and women aremore successful than their unfortunate looking counterparts. Whether it is a homosexual attraction or not men and women are drawn to and tend to like attractive men and women more than the ugs.

Even if you are completely straight would you rather stare at this

I'm so much rooting against them as much as I'm rooting for the men they are facing. It's not like with Koscheck where I want anyone but Koscheck. ANYONE but Koscheck. Except Chael, **** Chael.

I don't know who you're trying to convince. Us or yourself...

"been proven" lol, that is simply not true.

When I see a man fight or talk I don't think to myself why he's an attractive man! I look at the quality of what he's doing and judge him on that. I couldn't care less what he looks like.

You guys think he's pretty like I think a woman is pretty. End of story!

I honestly don't care and am just poking a bit of fun. I just think it's very strange that this behavior goes on and nobody has said anything.

"It's like we're straight, be he's SO hot! teehee"

I'm just teasing you gays er I mean guys like a big brother would.

Just makes me lol.

I'ts subconscious. I know you don't actually think that. But there is proof that if you are attractive people tend to correlate that with success.

Since the mid-nineties, Daniel Hamermesh . . . has done a series of studies on the role that appearance plays in the workplace, and his conclusion is captured by the title of his recent book, Beauty Pays. In the U.S., he finds, better-looking men earn four per cent more than average-looking men of similar education and experience, and uglier men earn thirteen per cent less. . . . Hamermesh finds that pulchritude is valuable in nearly all professions, not just those where good looks may seem to be an obvious asset. . .

Quote:
The research reviewed by Hamermesh shows that attractive people, both men and women, earn an average of 3 or 4% more than people with below average looks, which adds up to a significant amount of money over a lifetime. Beautiful people are also hired sooner, get promotions more quickly, are higher-ranking in their companies (a study found the CEOs of larger and more successful companies are rated as being more physically attractive than the CEOs of smaller companies), and get all kinds of extra benefits and perks on the job including, perhaps, more free tickets to fly in F/B class. It turns out that more attractive people often bring more money to their companies and therefore are more valuable employees. For example, a good-looking insurance salesperson will sell more insurance than one with below average looks. But that's not the whole story. Even in situations in which more and less attractive employees don't differ in their earning potential, employers are biased in favor of the better-looking people. For example, a study showed that above average looking people who apply for loans are more likely to obtain loans and to pay lower interest rates than below-average looking borrowers. This occurs despite the fact that the two groups of borrowers don't differ in their demographic characteristics (age or gender) or credit history. In fact, it turned out that the attractive borrowers were more likely to be delinquent on their loans than the less attractive people. Hamermesh's conclusion is that lenders are willing to exchange more generous terms on loans "for the pleasure of dealing with good-looking borrowers." They do this, according to him, simply because they are prejudiced against bad-looking borrowers. Similarly, Hamermesh thinks that good-looking insurance salespeople sell more insurance because customers are biased against bad-looking insurance sellers.

Quote:
Researchers at the London School of Economics studied 52,000 people in the U.K. and U.S., and their results were conclusive: Attractive men have IQs 13.6 points above average, while attractive women score 11.4 points higher. “Physical attractiveness is significantly positively associated with general intelligence,” said the lead researcher, Satoshi Kanazawa. The research was published in the professional journal Intelligence. In what many would regard as a controversial perspective, Kanazawa says, “our contention that beautiful people are more intelligent is purely scientific,” adding, “it is not a prescription for how to great or judge others.”
There are a lot more studies and if I was allowed I would link journals from the University I have access to.

Look at your avatar man. What you talking about?

No but really, Ape City has a point. Its not about finding a dude attractive. Its just some dudes are more asthetically pleasing than others. The 2 photos that Ape City provided prove that.
