Maybe a few guys shouldn't have the belts, but bottom line, they won the fights that got them the belts.
(Sylvia, like him or not, beat AA and got it back, Anderson KOed Franklin, Chuck KO's everybody, Hughes has defended against everybody and Sherk clearly won his fight for the belt)


Oh, and if you think Pride is any better with thier silly entrance music and giant ramp, then go to that forum.
Dude, baseball is only really the other sport that has gay rivles. And the downside to creating stupid rivils, is that then the fighters are not just fighting, they are in there to hurt eachother, meaning they wont stop when they know they should, just because there are feelings now involved.

I clearly have no idea what im talking about, atleast i showed a good comparison.

And Pride with the ring entrences, what is wrong with that, they should be allowed to enter a ring anyway they want.

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

Yes but there is't a hype between the teams, it's hying the event, which is fine. Thats like UFC doing a promo for the next PPV event.

it's flawed because no one is arguing any of your points. this happens in every single sport out there yet you seem offended by this for whatever reason.

HYPING THE EVENT is a lot different then HYPING the fighters. You need to think what you are saying.

By hyping the fighters, you creats people you like and hate, when you should have respect for the fighters because they are in there showing off their skill.

And like and disliking a team is differnt because you aren't directing your hate at 1 person, where as this you are.... why would fighters want to fight where they get booed? why would you want to fight someone when they are *****ing about you, and they dont even know you?

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

Im offended because fans are disrespecting fighters, and fighters are disrespecting eachother, thats not MMA, if you are going to call UFC an MMA league, then the fighters should be disciplined enough to have respect for eachother.
