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
Dude, what are you talking about? Are you always trying start something? Don't hate on people because they are trying to back their fighter. You don't know if these rumors are true or not, so stfu. If your best friend was in a fight and it was pretty even, but he clearly lost, you wouldn't go around telling everyone he got his ass handed to him, you would back him up and bust out a legitimate excuse that could be true or not. There's always two sides to the story.
I think the real reason fighters fight even though they are injured or sick, is because they love to fight. If you've ever played on any sports team, you ALWAYS want to play, whether you're sick, injured whatever, it dosn't matter you want to play. Same goes with these fighters, they just want to fight to promote themselves so they can become the best. Anyone who is competetive wants to become the best as fast as possible, so why pass up the oppurtunity to show the world why you're #1, or should be? It wouldn't make sense.
They also don't wanna let their fans down. If they don't show for a fight they let every fan that was looking forward to them fight down, which in turn may cause people to hate them. Plus, Dana probably rides there ass like no other to fight even if they ate some bad "pink tacos" the night before and are puking everywhere. He dosn't giving a flying ****, he pays them to fight, so they should be damn ready to fight. This is a career, if you didn't show up to work your boss would be pretty dissapointed, even if you told him in advance.
Enough of your stupid threads/posts man.
