Better to say or do what you want then stand there and bow with a stupid little submissive look on your face.

I see where your coming from since it is disrespectful too boo in a sport, particularly in MMA. But I can't say I wouldn't be doing the same thing having to endure 25 minutes of Tim Sylvia

For the fifth time in this thread. I wasn't talking about booing both fighters for inactivity. I'd boo too if both fighters stood there pawing jabs at each other from 10 feet away.

Booing a guy during introductions, or booing him because he just beat the american fighter is rude and disrespectfull and people who do it have no idea what this sport is about and the sport is trying it's damnest to become mainstream and doesn't need that type of behaviour to cheapen it and give fuel to the naysayers who call it a thug brawl.

This is why MMA fans have the world thinking that they're just dumb thugs and that they just want to see brawls. It's not true in Pride, where the fans are hardcore. It's a US thing.

How does the saying go? "If you paid the dollar, you get to holler"?

That said, I agree that booing the ground game or a fighter's home country/city/neck of the woods reveals the fan's ignorance.

There's a lot of chatter on these boards about the "ignorant" fans (especially ignorant UFC fans) at these events. You've got to realize that these guys are paying the bills by showing up - so I say the more the merrier. There seems to be a slightly snobbish element that enters discussion here and there, sort of like people that stop liking a band when it gets too popular and sells too many CDs. People who only like something when it's their little thing, and look down on those who 'don't get it'. Well, the cat's out of the bag now - MMA is a rapidly growing sport, and people may not quite understand everything about it, but they know it's cool. Without these "ignorant" fans, UFC would still be a circus side show. So I say welcome them.

If you'll excuse me, I'm off to hug my neighbour, start world peace, and sing kum-ba-ya...
