One word for Thiago Tavares...WOW!!

Man this kid looked INCREDIBLE!! His grappling was ridiculous and he did it against a very solid opponent in Jason Black. This division is so loaded and I think this kid could be the next big thing. Im talkin like #1 in the world material. I am usually a good judge of talent and this kid looks like a cant miss prospect to me.




Mancrushes
1.Shogun
2.BJ
3.Fedor
4.Kos
5.GSP

Im in Porno's

I really liked his fighting style, stamina, and skills. I totally despised his pre-fight attitude, my shit don't stink, persona; as well as when he kicked Black a few times after the tapout. What a prick. Maybe he'll humble up real quick and I can become a fan, but until then, I hope he gets dropped on his arm like Shogun.

Yeah there was disrespect. Wish there were more humble fighters like Spencer Fisher.

wow, great minds think alike. I'm all about in-ring respect. If you want to talk shit beforehand, so be it, but you had better back it up. Once you win though, it had better be complete respect for the guy that had the guts to step foot in the ring in the first place.

The only exceptions I have for this are when a fighter belittles his opponent and basically says that he's not worthy and then gets beaten by the "lesser" fighter, the "lesser" guy has the right to laugh in his face and talk all the shit in the world.

Let him lose one time and then he will be great. Remember he is undefeated and 22 years old. The kid has skills and I would like to see him rise up

To some degree I actually agree with you. I have no problem with it but I don't look down on a guy for not wanting to do it. Sometimes it seems like a fighter is really pumped and the bell rings, then his opponent throws his hand out and he's guilt tripped into returning it, thereby killing his mood.

Either way is fine with me.
