I'm just messing around, but links to the source you're citing are fantastic for readers, content providers, lawyers, and judges. Everybody wins! Except hobos, of course, but that's to be expected.

*Canadian vernacular pun!

No green dot for you!
Well, I guess ya got me there. Well played. Here's a green dot for you.

It's okay, neither of them left their names either. Korsakov neg repped me prolly cuz he knew I was making fun of him, and Candian Pyscho meant to neg rep me but failed miserably. Thanks though.

$5 says I get neg repped for my post about Cro Cop without a person leaving a name...

Back on topic its nice to see fighters give respect to eachother before fights be it fake or legit. Every good fight has some sort or build up or hype to it. This one is none the different. Some of Matt's comments have underlying messages in them. But he is putting out his best foot forward and praising GSP as one of the priemer WW in the sport.

I'd actually argue the opposite, considering that Team Serra's other UFC entries — Nick Serra, Pete Sell and Joe Scarola — have looked average at best. Matt, meanwhile, has some wins over some very good fighters. I don't think a guy can be average with wins over St. Pierre, Lytle, Menjivar and Edwards.
Anyway, Matt Hughes and GSP obviously hold each other in high regard. While this by itself doesn't help sell PPPV's, it's a refreshing touch of class.
I really dug the way Anderson Silva talked up Franklin, even after he had brutalized him a second time. There are so many lame attempts at trash-talking in MMA. I get so tired of it.

Thanks for the +rep anyway.
Haha, well in. I'll often neg. rep. people I disagree with and leave behind some overblown insult, simply because it's what typically happens with me. Good little system, it is.

That said, things kind of worked themselves out, did they not? And let's be honest... with all of the threads about Hughes these days, it's getting a tad difficult to differentiate between sarcasm and seriousness. The post which you made, as assinine as it was, could easily be taken as serious when you reflect upon half the dumbasses who post at this site.

I know man, I honestly could give 2 shits less about neg rep. I just think it's fun to call out the people who do it, since I have the ability to see who reps me no matter what.

Anyway, I guess I made my point. People who realized I was joking, understood what I was getting at. People who thought I was serious, realize how stupid they sound when they do the same thing.

Good read, interesting that Jon Kopenhaver and Jared will be fighting each other at the TUF finale....obviously their little scrap this wednesday is nothing big.


Not sure what you have heard; but pretty much everybody associated with the sport of mma acknowledges that GSP is a nice guy if nothing else.
