Unnecessary Booing Ruining Fights

the people in attendance suck. i was at a sportsbar watching ufc 67 and the only reason i knew rampage got booed was because he said it after the fight. there was no reason for it. then roger huerta got booed for speaking spanish. geez. the fights werent as fun to watch last night cuz no one knew when to cheer and they just thought booing would make something happen.

They need to put Chris Leban in charge of dealing with the audience. Whenever they act up he can tell them to shut up and go to hell!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

i wasnt really surprised to hear the booing. i watched in a bar and couldnt hear it, but then i watched it again online this morning. i really only understand the booing during the cote fight...he should have finished it and didnt. but hey, a wins a win. booing during the rampage fight was lame. i understand why the booed lutter, but did he really need any more bad sh*t to happen to him?

overall the booing was retarded, but i'm learning to expect it from the audience of ufc ppv's.
