My boxing coach tries to get things started in between two guys so that they try a little harder while sparring.

I also think that by saying "I won't fight him, he's my friend", you set up 2 things. One is a higher payday if that fight becomes something the fans really want to see. Two is that you can artificially create a drama by saying that you "used to be friends" now you want to "eat his children".

That is one of the most straight forward and sensible answers I have ever heard,props to you!
Even Liddell was heard to say that Ortiz was one of the toughest LHW around and he gave him that respect,even with all the smack talk.

i disagree, i think all atheletes give each other the respect for being a competitor and a professional, but a true competitor wants to beat whomever is in their way, friend or not friends

what are you talking about don't compare somethign that is fake to something that is real, thats just moronic.

More bad blood ='s more MONEY, more entertainment leading up to the fight, more hype during the fight, and more money b/c of higher PPV buys, which lead to bigger purses and more media attention.

Every sport there is bad blood, don't compare WWE to anything real sport

I'd fight my best friend to get a title shot and $100,000.

I'd kick his ass good too. But i'd still have a beer with him afterwards and compliment him on the shot he got on my nose that bloodied it up and ever so nearly got me in that arm bar.

If you cant fight a "friend" your not a real fighter or your scared he's trained with you so much you cant beat him as he knows you too well.

But with Chuck he's got so much money now why would he need to fight a friend, he doesnt need the money anymore anyway.

no one can ever have enough money and thats a fact. Also these guys now are all about promoting the sport and making it bigger and bigger, so fighting someone that is your friend if its going to make a great fight, they should get it on
