I understand that sometimes in order to create interest and hype for a rematch that fighters will minimize their previous loss, blame it on extenuating circumstances, health issues, injuries, etc...to an extent it's always been acceptable in sports I guess. But what is up with the complete and utter nonsense of MMA fans? And MMA fighters for that matter? Isn't anyone capable anymore of saying "Hey tonight he was the better fighter."...what ever happened to losing with dignity and class? It's embarrassing that there is all this crap about people having the flu, or having a torn ACL, etc...a fighter can call off the fight at any time for any reason and if you're stupid enough to fight sick or injured, stupid enough to put your body and your career on the line when you're not 100% then you get what you deserve you dumb schmuck.
And all of you who perpetuate these BS rumours sound like a bunch of schoolgirls worshipping their favorite member of a the latest boyband. All I can say to that is HO-MOs
Fighters do need to lose with dignity. I was very irritated by Herring after his fight and his whining. Also Diaz,even though I hope he has much success in PRIDE,was very irritating by all his whining about everything UFC.
