Watched my first UFC press conference in 128 and ...

... it was absolutely horrible!

Incredibly mundane questions from the rank average press (some even asking for passes in front of everybody), then the fans got involved and it declined further. It was some of the most cringeworthy freeloading i've ever seen with nearly every fan instead of asking a question ... begging for free tickets! It was toe curling to watch and I was hoping to see the fighters talk more, rather than some prats grovel in public to Dana for 15 minutes.

I would like to ask are all the UFC press conferences that unprofessional?! Very suprised by it.

I am also suprised that Dana didn't kick ass and just nip the free loading ticket stuff in the bud! I know he said about twitter, but by then the horse had bolted!

Gotta love: Ramon Dekkers, Anderson Silva, Bones, Jose Aldo, Fedor, The Reem, Jerome Lebanner, Peter Aerts, Cain V, Roger Huerta, Nick Diaz

lol im use to it, they always do that type of stuff, though usually at Q&As, havent seen that THAT much at press conferences

the questions are usually bland but i enjoy watching it since sometimes some funny shit happens, or they actually ask a pretty good question sometimes where its just funny to see the tension

i didnt watch this press conference...thought it might have been good with JBJ being all cocky and funny like AS maybe...guess not =/

Most press conferences in both boxing and MMA are 99% retarded questions, 1/2% good questions, 1/2% fighters laughing because someone farted.
