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?

Ok, look.
If you have a MULTI team/fighter, MULTI fight/match event, you hype the different rivalries and different teams/fighters.
this happens everywhere, with every sport.
HOW CAN YOU NOT REALIZE THIS?


Not to mention MANY MANY MANY single sports people are hated. Hell I remember people throwing things and Jose Consaco(spelling?) and spitting at him.
Not to mention people beating fridges with bats and hating Perry in football.
So yeah, single people are hated, big time.

No offense, but yes it is MMA.
...and yes it most certainly is UFC, go rent the first 6 and tell me if you see ANY disrespect lol.
Kimo's camp talking crap and trying to right the whole Gracie camp, Gracie holding chokes and breaking arms after the ref called it, Shamrock acting like he was going to charge a guy after it was over the he was on the ground. O_O

This is out to the league, and it's fans.

Recently i have started to notice that fans of the UFC are booing other countries when they fight. Lol people common, you should be paying them ALL respects to what they are doing for you.

1) Fans boo people they don't like, so it's has a comparison to wrestling.

There are a few champs out there who shouldn't have the belt, yes given they do but they shouldn't, which makes the viewers more eager to watch upcomming fights because theres a story line.

2) WWE has a story line! But if you think about it, these are fighters, and it's a sport, you dont need to see a story developing to like the fights,

Fighters in the UFC like to SLAM!! their opponents to the ground for a Knock-out, where a slam isn't really that effective, it's only effective if you land on the soft spot on your head. And besides UFC the only time I really see slams is because the fighter who is on the top and in the gaurd is usually beening submitted, which the guy on the top slams him to break the hold.

3) If your "finishing move" is a slam, it's really homo, why don't we bring out tables and chair and stop signs too!


Lastly, fighters shouldn't cause drama, theres no need for it, its a martial art, respect the other fighter and his ability to do what he's good at. A lot of UFC fighters start talking shit about their next opponent to make it have more drama, and theres no need for it.

4) creating drama!

If you look at my 4 points you can see that UFC is more like a WWE match up, then a MMA battle.

I still like the fights, but to prove what im saying, watch the GSP VS Matt Hughes, coming up, the fans will boo GSP, and they dont even know him, and it just proves my point even more.


Have respect, thats really what they are fighting for they aren't fighting in the UFC for money we already know that!
---------------------------------------------------------
Unfortunatley it's all about the "Benjamins", if it was to put more money in the fighters pockets I could withstand a little of the hype and drama that the "UFC" is trying to create (ala WWE Controversy creates cash) but very little of that money goes into the fighters pockets.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?



Favorite Fighters:

Chuck Liddell
Rich Franklin
Diego Sanchez

I hate hearing this also, the fighters don't have to be fighters. and as compared to other MMA organizations UFC pays pretty goddamn well.

Well one thing I do know is this.

Hype does get in the way of some fights that should happen. Hype sometimes ignites a series of USELESS matches that should never have happened...Example. Tito vs Ken...that shouldnt have happened EVER...i was ok with the first one becasue 1 fight doesnt matter. But 4! For **** sakes! Hype caused that bullshit...and nobody can say different.

Tito should have already lost to Liddell, and Liddell wouldnt have had to waste his time on sobral.

I find it very funny that your sig says "For most of you, ignorance is bliss, but for me it's about the truth.", because that a incredibly ignorant statement. Maybe you didn't hear, but Michigan and Ohio State had a game today, but I guess you wouldn't consider that a rivalry. Now you can give me any sport, college level or pro and I will be able to tell you a big rivalry (and if I don't know one in a piticular soprt, I'm sure someone on this forum will).

And you said something about tennis, well didn't John McEnroe have some big rivalry with some guy? I'm sorry I don't much about tennis but I can assure you there are rivalries.

So if you are going to claim that it is all about the truth for you, at least get your facts right.

Sorry to say, if you don't like don't listen, it's my opinion and I'm entitled to it, I not here proclaiming it as truth only as my view, sorry if it pissed you off.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
