I dont understand boo-ing. Ive been to a few mma events and never booed, its just disrespectfull to all the fighters who have takan months out of their lives to train for the fight and put on a show, then they get booed. That is plain wrong.

when I think back to all the moments in the fight I can hear boo's in my head. It must be tiring getting booing all day.

It was also really shitty how they booed Cote, that is a thing nobady has any control over, cote still got back up and tried to fight but was forced to stop

This were not the Chicago area fans , this are the fans of the future , the Brock Lesnar fans ( frustrated that they didn't get their share of entertainment,body flying trough the air , tag teams, chairs flying) , the Kimbo fans ... as long as dana white tries to sell a Lesnar fight as the "fight of the century", this is the future....I just hope that Lesnar wins and than Mr. White gives Kimbo a shot to the title , and will have the "fight of the millennium ".

Actually in the area it sounded like half of the fans were cheering and half of the fans were booing. I was pretty disappointed in the crowd. They booed everyone, even Smardja, not sure if that's spelled right. I was starting to get pissed. I mean we aren't Philly for crying out loud.

EDIT:: I'm from chicago and should clarify that I'm completely ashamed of my town right now

I sure hope that they come back, or at least within driving distance. Because despite the bad ending (that really wasn't anyone's fault) and some retarded fans. The live UFC experience is amazing. I've been to local shows, but a major production with high quality fighters was a lot of fun.
