Oteman has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I don't see anything wrong with a little samck talk, it can get out of hand, but I do not think it is even close to getting hand. What is starting to get out of hand or has already is the crazy list of sponsors that they thank, for what seems like an enternity after they win. Seems kinda like NASCAR with endless lists of sponsors. Some of these guys are throwing on sponsor shirts, hats, grabbing a quick drink of whatever in the heck it is during the post fight interveiw. I know it's all a money thing but I don't like it.

One of the main criticisms of the UFC is that fighters are kept around because they're fan favorites rather than because of their skill level. It is blatantly obvious that popular fighters are given easier stepping stone fights to prolong their UFC career and I'll even go as far as saying that the judging is biased towards the fighters who will draw a bigger audience...I'm not going to start rattling off examples because I think it will just start a big argument about specific incidents, but c'mon, you cant tell me you haven't seen some questionable decisions where the scoring went the way that was best for the UFC's bank account regardless of what really happened in the Octagon. But the fans are like goldfish and they forget about it by the time they reach the other side of the bowl and life goes on...

So how does all this relate to showboating? Well when personality starts to become a bigger draw than talent you're not a real sport anymore...you're "entertainment" and you're a joke. I dont want to see that happen to MMA.

I don't pay too much attention to the shirts, but aren't damn near every one of them just a sponsor shirt anyway? What is wrong with that? No different than any other sport with sponsors
If you're not familiar with tito's shirts, it has nothing to do with sponsorships. No other sport does something like when the Eagles win the super bowl or something and wear jerseys that say "Dolphins are gay."

I can totally see that being crossing the line. Him being a jackass is fine (especially when somebody quiet like Chuck knocks him out, makes it that much better), but here's a list of tito's shirts:

"I Just ****ed Your Ass"
Gay Mezger Is My *****
"I Just Killed The Axe Murderer"
"That's American For Whoop Ass Mate"
"I Just Killed Kenny, You Bastard"
"Punishing Him Into Retirement"

The first two especially are overboard. Showboating is fine, I think it should be encouraged. Go all crazy when you finish a round, because if you get knocked out in the next, makes the win that much better. I think the T-shirts are a little much though.

I am sick of people calling out people they have no business doing so, that is annoying. Koscheck can't pick who he wants to fight he recently called out Diego and before he even fights him he is calling out GSP? (from what I heard.)

Your an idiot most of the posts you put on here are stupid. Nothing crazy is happening. UFC wan'ts guys with personality because they are easy to market but if you don't win they can't market you. Watch Pride they have fighters doing freaking dance routines down to the damn ring. I can't even think of a time where i was like wow thats just over the top. A grave digger routine or a T-Shirt doesent take legitimacy away from MMA. If you think so your stupid. Period.

Well you're entitled to your opinion...no matter how moronic or imbecilic it may be. Perhaps you're just one of the new type of fans who doesn't care about skill or talent...you just wanna see a good show. Well maybe TNA or WWE is more up our alley. Maybe you're not intelligent enough to enjoy the nuances of a real sport. But hey that's okay, you're a doofus, just roll with it

Your the moron that just started watching the UFC. You asked for fights to watch the other day. Name me the great fighters and the fighters that are the most marketable. Guess what they are the same. Chuck Liddell is the most marketable fighter in the UFC. Guess what? He is also the best fighter in the UFC. Winning makes you marketable regardless of your antics. Tito does some stupid crap but guess what he wins thats why he is so marketable. Quinton Jackson is a hilarious guy and talks plenty of smack and junk like that but he wins. If you talk Sh** and don't when your just some retard that is completely unmarketable. People like fighters for many reasons and people hate fighters for many reasons. Chuck VS Tito is going to be huge and that is great for the MMA. A lot of that is because Tito acts like an idiot. Guess what with out those new fans MMA wouldn't be where it is today. Wise up.

What the hell are you babbling about? I didn't ask for "fights to watch"...you've obviously got me confused with someone else which is just further evidence of you being a drooling retard so just wipe off your keyboard, log out of this forum and go watch backyard wresting videos on youtube where you belong.

That was over the top, I'm on TyKidd's side with this. I can't believe that you (Bungle) actually want the fighters to not get excited and pump the crowd up. Some do more than others, but few or none go as far as Tito. That being said, the fighters are by no means out of control. Who wants to see emotionless drones fighting?
