Omg Everyone!

OMG, everyone... honestly stop BOOING!!! IT'S A GLOBAL PROBLEM!!! WTF

these people (i like to call them fighters but you boo them so i guess i will just call them people) put there bodies on the line for YOUR amusement,willing to get KNOCKED THE FU#K OUT! And you boo them.

This is the reason why i am a little peeved! You (meaning the majority of the people on this forum) cry and scream about how this amazing "sport" is not really considered a sport in the sports community. That's because you MOFO's BOO THEM!!!! WAKE THE FOOK UP SHEEP!!

Problem: When fans boo the sport then it shows that the sport is not as good as ones that sell out crowds and have CHEERING FANS!

Solutions: ???? It's up to you.

Stop being hypocrites and either support the sport, or get more knowledge about the sport so that you can cheer submission attempts.


Example: (i believe it was the 3rd round of Henderson VS. Rampage) Rampage was on top trying to control Henderson, and Henderson tries to go for Jackson's inside Left arm for a kimura, and YOU START TO BOO THEM!! WTF!!! Please in the name of this sport STOP BOOING THEM!!

P.S.

I have bit my lip for so long, but once this became a global problem it made me think that YOU are the ones who are killing this sport!

For most of you, ignorance is bliss, but for me it's about the truth.

"YOU"?

I didn't boo at all, I watched it on a big screen with a few people, when Henderson had the kimura we were going crazy yelling "HES GOT IT LOCKED IN!!" Intense indeed.

Oh noes, an internet tough guy decides to 'stop biting his lip' and REALLY let us have it! Did you ever consider that the people who go to a UFC or any MMA event are a very small % of the actual MMA fanbase?

Also, if you haven't noticed, every sport has people that boo. Have you ever seen a soccer game? Or football? Baseball perhaps? Rugby?

I couldn't agree with you more about the booing problem. Nothing pisses me off more than when the crowd starts booing. What separates a fan from the ones who boo, is we see the greatness of these fighters and what they do in the octagon, and we respect what they do before they even enter the octagon. All the hours of preparation for that one moment, that one fight. Even when someone loses I feel bad for them because of all the work they put into preparing for the fight. What really pisses me off along with booing is when the whole crowd starts chanting one name. Now on the other hand sometimes booing is necessary. Like when a fighter tries to rain on someones parade with excuses because he lost. Like by saying you lost because of an "injury". Bullshit, if your injured you don't fight. It is that simple. I also don't mind booing someone who shows bad sportsmanship. I'm not going to mention any names Like "Mike Bisping" or anything but...ummm yeah nothing but disrespect to those who show disrespect and bad sportsmanship.

Perhaps, but these are the people representing the fans, IF you like it or not they are the people who attract more fans.

Think about it, would you watch baseball if after every time a pitcher threw a ball someone was booing. Tard.

Booing the ground game

Next time I hear someone booing the ground game, I'm going to tell them to go watch boxing. This isn't bare knuckle brawling folks, it's MIXED MARTIAL ARTS!!!

If you want to watch two guys standing toe to toe for pure excitement, go watch the next De La Hoya vs Mayweather (I sarcastically say). Or take a jui-jitsu class, maybe you'll learn to appreciate the ground game a little.

I was disappointed that the English crowd is just as bad as the yanks. Boing Americans just for being American (not just Hamil - though he sort of asked for it with 'born in the usa').
