You could compile an embarrassing list about any sport. I like hockey but some times the refing is embarrassing, superstars getting preferential treatment and fourth liners treated like animals.

Why is Cyborg even on that list? Fathead got her released from her UFC contract so she could go fight some 145'er...

Yep, but this is MMA forum, UFC section, so good lists and bad lists are about MMA/UFC, not anything else.

That's not what I'm saying. She was under UFC contract and it was reported on the cage potato website, the same people who made this list, that she wanted out of it. Then claim the UFC never offered her a contract. She had one. Oxymoron?

That wasn't meant for you at all, my friend. You was just half sec faster than me and when I pressed enter, your post was already there.

BTW. I totally agree with your points regarding Cyborg.

The occasional good list would be nice though, don't you agree?

Point stands. When the good fights *far* outweigh the stupid matchups, why so much focus on the dumb stuff?

Agree 1000%. I am all for a thread featuring a list of great moments in UFC just to balance things, then. If you start it, I'll follow your lead.

I just don't give too much at this "whole negative" thing. As I said before, There's nothing wrong about being entertainment, IMO, and this list here is not something straight negative, then. Just facts that show entertainment moments in UFC, which is fun to list and comment.

The sad part I always been against is the one you and Liza spoke about here too. Cutting winning fighters because they are not "entertainers". Being entertainment? Totally OK. Cut sportists based on that? Not so much.

Haha. All good. I was like there is NO way someone could disagree with that. Cyborg makes a handful of poor decisions. It is 100% her fault she isn't in the UFC. It's gonna turn into one of those Fedor things where it gets talked about to death and nothing ever comes of it.

Agreed on "nice stuff list"

Disagreed on the last part. I myself prefer to continue to improve in all areas, rather than merely ignore negatives & continue the status quo.

Personal opinions will vary, OFC. :]
