He's right, but thats how ALL SPORTS are.
Baseball, Football, Soccer, Basketball, EVERYTHING.

A lot of the fans will sit and talk crap about a missed shot or something not playing defense. Did everyone just think that when MMA got big and starting getting more and more fans that it would be different?

100,000 fatass couch dwellers are going to call someone a sissy everytime they catch a loss even though they couldn't go 30 seconds.
*shrug*

Swick's life must've flash before his eyes. He realized it wasn't worth having his nose knee'd out of the back of his head.

I agree they shouldnt throw swick at Sliva just yet. He is not ready developement wise. He will be i have no doubt that one day this guy could hold the belt but not right now its much too soon.

Yeah, and he is doing really well.
I wouldn't mind seeing him in 2 or 3 more fights before he gets a shot.

this is what i've been saying the whole time, i've tried to enforce this idea.

Guys like Evan Tanner and Sean Sherk (pretty much my 2 favorite fighters) have the full meaning of what MMA really stands for. You fully respect your opponents no matter who they are, they have the courage to step in the ring and face a phyiscal challenge that not many can face.

Glad Tanner said it, now he just needs to get back in the ring and win that belt (it'd be very hard but i think his wrestling would give him a good chance against Silva).

Tanner has wrestling ability. He could take Silva down. I'm not saying he would if they faced, but he's got a shot. Evan is off in la la land nowadays, so that fight is pretty unlikely.

True, I've always liked Tanner, but I think too many people are really underestimating Silva's BJJ. Now I'll probably be disregarded because I've only seen him on his back on one fight in Pride (i think), but he was great. The whole first round was on the mat, I can't remember who he fought (he was a big japanese guy) but he showed really good submission attempts from his back and good defense.
If silva got taken down I'm sure he would still have a great chance, not many people seem to think so though, it's kind of irritating, or maybe i'm just out of line.
