Nicely put Quietus. Although you lose points for singing kum-ba-ya :P

Maybe in time the UFC fans will come to appreciate everything that MMA entails?

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...

I don't necessarily agree with you with respect to the booing - but I totally get your take on the "popularity" defense. Booing while the fight is on is OK if the fighters are not performing at their best... but before or after... who care who pays the bills - have RESPECT! As with any sport - if you can't get in the octagon/arena/cage with them you have no right to critisize their performance.

Excuse the typing... I'm slightly tipsy and get very opionionated when I drink SoCo straight!

That's pretty good for being tipsy.

I definitely think that, in regards to Monson and Sylvia getting booed, fans shouldn't do it. I don't like Sylvia, and I still respect him enough as a fighter and an athlete not to boo him before he puts on a crappy show.

jcmeagher has a little shameless behaviour in the past
People should respect the fighters no matter what happens, getting in that octagon and fighting is not the easyiest thing ever.
