I'm not going to lie, nationality plays a mild part in who I root for. Of course it's certainly not the most important factor, but if two fighters from different nationalities I like are facing each other, odds are I'm going to root for the American guy. I've got nothing against some of the nationalities that are represented in the UFC. I've been to Canada and the UK and love both places. I don't root for many Brazilian fighters (Machida and Maia being huge exceptions) but I have nothing against Brazil.

But of course because I'm American, it's bad to be patriotic

Back on topic,

I'm pretty torn about the main event. On one hand, I want Rousey to lose simply because I like Carmouche a lot and I want to see the look on Dana's face should that be the result. On the other hand, if Rousey loses, Women's MMA wll likely take a large step back. I think that the UFC have some ladies that could potentially be pretty marketable (IMO).
I'm a big fan of both Machida and Henderson. I'd like to see Henderson win because I want him to get his last shot at the belt and go out on a high note, win or lose. I want to see Machida win because I truly believe that he is capable of beating Jon Jones, despite his loss a little over a year ago. Either way I'll be happy and sad with the result.
I like Menjivar but Faber is one of my favorite fighters. I'd like to see Faber pull off the win.
Wouldn't mind seeing Court win in his WW debut. His drop is long overdue.
I'd love for Lawler to knock Koscheck out, but that's wishful thinking. Lawler has looked like hell lately.
Seeing Schaub try and ride another imaginary bicycle to heaven again would be wonderful.

Some finishes because on paper it looks like there is going to be a lot of decisions.

Edit: this thread needs Tabares or whatever

Ronda to lose and all this stupid bull to be over with and Hendo to win just so all the little Machida fan boys can crawl in a ******* hole. Even though I like Machida, some of you guys are annoying as piss. I want Lawler to punch a hole straight through Koschecks face.

Piss isn't annoying. It's delicious.

Sincerely,
Machida fans.

Indeed. Question is, would I drink Lyotos piss? I guess if they kept it on ice and sent it turbo express...

What's a matter mate, you got hurt feelings?

Jesus man, I was making fun of you guys for going on and on saying a man is attractive, like "Friends" joke around with each other. You know? With your FRIENDS?

I just don't get it at all. He's not even that good looking, he just has good hair. Remember him with short hair?



Not so pretty now is he!?

I think the point is, just as you feel it is peculiar for men on a fight forum to be discussing attractive men. We think it's weird for you to be so fixated on said conversation. Couple that with your negative connotations of it all, and you're not painting a very good picture of yourself, friend

Most people find symetry and proper proportions to be attractive. Lyoto definitely has some of the characteristics. To put it the way my wife just said it "he certainly isn't bad looking".



Plus that is kind of a bad picture of machida. Looks like he just finished a workout. He looks way more badass here:
