Well then I was the few that liked it, a really good insult it was to piss off a lot of people and it worked and I love that, that's why I watch MMA to get animosity and invoke feelings of love and hatred before the fight so you have an emotional attachment to it.

Do you know how boring it was for me to watch bisping vs belcher and gsp/condit when I gave 0 shits who won? If you ain't making people think about you or love or hate you, you ain't doing your job right. Also if anderson had some better insults then I break your face and he's a clown then the sympathy card wouldn't be going for him.

I'm not like that at all. I thought GSP/Condit was an excellent fight. I hate fake hype, I don't get into it at all & honestly feel that it makes the sport less fun to watch. If there is legit beef between two guys sure but that fake hyping doesn't do anything for me. How can it do anything for you, when you know it's fake...I really don't get it.

CHAEL = CHAMP
Maybe the UFC needs to implement a WWE style "money in the bank" match, so that people who can't win a championship can come in to the ring any time a true champ is injured or too tired to move and steal the title from them?

I'm sure Sonnen would not accept that 'briefcase', but looks like some of his fans would have no issue with it.

Condit vs GSP was a great fight that needed zero cheese talk leading up to it because it involved two fighters who deserved to be in that fight in the first place. That's how it's supposed to be done every single time, MMA fans got every penny's worth because of it with no bullshit required.

If Jon will beat Gustafsson , Can you guys tell me who else has even a tiny chance to beat Jones ??

but that's you though, I don't care about that aspect 1 iota. You are entitled to your viewpoint but it's not the be all end all, I watch fights because I like watching fights. I'd rather watch two no-names in an amazing fight than 2 superstars, one a villain the other a hero, have a one-sided beatdown. Perfect example was the fight they showed after the main event with back and forth action, watching that with my dad we both thought it was the best fight of the night and I can't remember either guys' name. I don't care about names, hype, emotion, trash-talking or promotion because in the end none of that really matters once the door closes. My favorite fights are the ones where a guy comes back from the brink and wins, the fight with Guida and Heurta is one of my favorite fights ever because it was actually a fight on not one guy getting demolished by the other and at any moment either guy could have won it.

Especially when you have $ on the line it makes it all the more funner. Then add liquor (sober for one week) and I transform into a maniac. I hate losing...it's like a double whammy. Although I did bet on the LHW title holder once against Rampage. Random dude said that Rampage was going to win and he wanted to place a bet. I immediately looked at him and said I'll bet ANY AMOUNT on Stretch Armstrong then he sheepishly said $10...eh...easy money. Question is would you bet against your favorite fighter. That's something I havn't done yet, and probably don't plan to.

That would be Steven Siler and Kurt Holobaugh. I think the Jim Miller fight vs Healey was better. Kurt messed up in the end giving up position. He was coming back strong. Still very entertaining fights!

hey yes betting gets my feelings too, I barely bet on my favorite fighter unless it's a solid chance for a win or huge odds. I do pretty well that way but between bad decisions and refs MMA betting can be really annoying
