Think about it, would you watch baseball if after every time a pitcher threw a ball someone was booing. Tard.
If he was throwing crappy pitches then yes, I would. People who boo in MMA, for the most part, do it when nothing exciting is happening on the ground, or just circling and not exchanging any punches. This is acceptable. You can't expect people who enjoy violence(which, as an animal, albeit a human, is natural), to understand every aspect of a fight. As well, you also can't judge MMA fans based on a tiny percentage.

No one chooses to let morons that pay a ticket fee to represent the 'fans'.

Like even booing a country... WTF is that? STOP BOOING!

You all should know that smack talk is smack talk. They do it before the fight just to build it, and then it is made a BIG thing so that you watch it. So their "personality" and "sportsmanship" is just because that's how they are being told by DA TEEVEE so that you can want a "winner" in the fight.

Honestly if anyone watched pride, and watch the Japanese fans, they watched in amazement on these fights. Cheered everyone, and you boo.
YAY

But this is what new fans judge it by. If you were to watch this UFC for the first time EVER, you would think it was "GAY" because guys are just laying there on the ground, and the new watchers can say... "listen to these people booing" ... and then they are tainted.

If you don't like it, these people are the people you want to have representing your fan base? Even if you don't boo you should still be ticked at the other people who do. Get some respect or Grow some balls and step into the ring and feel how it feels to be booed.

I'm confused. Can you actually hear the other forum members through your computer, or how do you know that the majority of our forum members are booing?

Yeah someone makes a thread complaining about booing every event, this is nothing new. Yeah fans boo in almost every country but Japan. We're probably just gonna have to learn to deal with it.

There has been too many topics on this, I'll give you one of my answers to this:

The non-hardcore fans, who don't know a lot about Rampage and Henderson, expected a fight standing up. Yes, there is a problem with booing of the fighters during a good ground game, but the tons of Brits there were all stuffed next to each other, guys standing in front of them, shuffleing around, just to see what? A clump of two fighters. Trust me, I've experianced something like this, called Sherk-Franca...

That's a sad approach to take to the situation. This is the age of the internet, how many people or on these forums now? I bet a lot! If your word gets read, then someone is looking at it.

Why not try and start a discussion about this, ummm isn't that what a forum is about ... admin? lol.
