There are a lot more studies and if I was allowed I would link journals from the University I have access to.
I don't buy it.

There's more to it than that.

Less attractive people tend to have lower confidence which I think factors into their ability to perform at job interviews, etc.

I personally believe confidence is what affects the scores, not just looks.

The point is, you guys for some reason think Machida is good looking. "I" think that's really strange and not something a man should say.

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.
Haha exactly, my Avatar points out just how silly and gay wrestling looks to most people.

And hey, I can take it. I'm just trying to have a fun discussion where we bust each others balls. I hope it's looked at as an opportunity to see both sides of the story. That is all.

That's partially the point. Bad looks lead to low confidence which leads to low scores, bad interviews, lower pay etc. Attractive people tend to be more confident, which makes them perform better in stressful situations from elementary school to that big job interview.

You know you've hit a nerve when you're receiving anonymous neg rep!

Homophobia? Please. Just because "I" think it's weird that certain users go on and on about how good looking a fighter is on a fight forum doesn't mean anything.

I'm just trying to point out how it looks to those of us who don't find him "aesthetically pleasing".

If you think I'm homophobic then maybe you're a homo?

I'm just trying to have a fun debate, isn't that what this forum is for? Not neg repping just because people have their own personal opinions. I'm disappointed.

I want Lawler to put Kos to sleep, though he will probably get out wrestled all night. So I'm really wanting Josh to go in with a lot of confidence in his hands.

I want Hendo to win so he will then have a chance to capture one more strap and really seal his legacy as one of the best ever. However, I see Lyoto being a stylistic nightmare for Dentures Dan, so I'm not holding my breath for that one...

I want Rhonda and Liz to have a double KO so there will be a rematch and all the haters can wallow and cry about two women headlining another card.
