I don't think you know at all what you are talking about. Hendricks couldn't grapple or punch because oh my god, his hand got dislocated. I suppose when Griffin lost to Rashad he should've just sucked it up
Fine. Let's remove the Condit fight from the equation. What about the Pierce fight? The Koscheck fight? And the loss to Story? I've raised these fights as prime examples of Hendricks fading when the fight doesn't go his way in previous posts, yet you seem content to ignore them. Why don't you go and actually watch those fights, come back with something halfway intelligent, and maybe we can have ourselves a discussion. I do my best to show people on this board respect, but you're blatantly ignoring large segments of my argument in an attempt to make it seem weaker than it is, and I don't respect or have time for laziness.
While being a long time lurker, one thing I've noticed about Canadian Psycho is that his opinion translates directly into fact.
E.g. the impression that he thought Hendricks was wilting transfers directly to Hendricks WAS wilting... His knowledge of MMA is unquestionable as us mere casuals don't see the complexities that a true expert of the MMA world sees.
People wonder why this forum is going downhill and has been for a while is because it is no longer a place to share knowledge but to be lectured to by a small minority who believe volume of posts equals knowledge of MMA
Yep, that's me
I very rarely dismiss anyone's opinion. Not that these things matter in the grand scheme of things, but I haven't garnered a good reputation at this forum because I'm dismissive or think myself the epitome of MMA knowledge. I've been wrong in the past, and I own up to it. I've been schooled by posters who know ten times more than I do. And while I may be a bit aggressive or heated during certain discussions, I'd like to think it basic sense that what I'm saying or arguing is - in fact - my opinion and nothing more. I want to believe that enough people at this forum are intelligent enough to realize that my posts are my opinion, without my having to add 'imo' at the end of each and every one. My word is not gospel. It's opinion.
You're entitled to think whatever you like of me. It's your opinion, and - gasp - I support your being entitled to it. I enjoy discussing MMA, and as I said, I can get pretty into it. But that doesn't change the fact that all I'm offering is an opinion. Is it reality to me? Yes. Do I believe that everyone shares or ought to share my views? No.
