I think some of you guys are underestimating the UFC here. One of the reasons UFC is doing so well is production value. I think they rigged their mics to pick up a lot less background noise this time so we could hear the action and Rogan & Goldie. I say if anything we should be amazed at the continual perfection of the PPV by the UFC. To somehow allow us to hear the cornermen talk while 55K people are screaming their heads off?

I agree that acoustics and production probably dampened the sound. However, generally speaking Toronto crowds are pretty tame when things are tame but get crazy when stuff gets crazy. I was as Wrestlemania whatever in Toronto and it was the same way. Mostly silence punctuated by insane pops.

Montreal fans aren't the same as Toronto fans. They're a lot more vocal. Toronto fans are generally looking around to see if its 'ok' to cheer.

This.

Haha, I don't know if I agree with this. Torontonians are almost obnoxiously rambunctious and noisy when it comes to sports. The manner in which they (myself excluded) continue to cheer on the Leafs season round is awe inspiring, if not pointless. I'd say it was more to do with the acoustics of the building than 'reserved fandom'.

Firstly, that's the leafs. Secondly, really, the ACC hasn't been THAT loud all season. It only gets loud when the leafs are playing good and playing in meaningful games. Like its not loud from the face-off, they're not continuous chants etc. In all cities you get rambunctious sports fans, its the frequency and general ethic that matters. Toronto really isn't that spectacular in that regard.

And we're talking about noise here, not 'support'. I agree that TO fans love their sports and teams and MMA.

Meh, I don't really care either way. I go to the Montreal events, lol.

And I was at WrestleMania (yes, I was a wrestling fan once), and it was anything but 'quiet'. I seem to recall a whole hell of a lot of rowdiness. Could barely hear my own thoughts. Like I said, I don't think it quite comes off the same via television. Joe told us outright it was loud... amongst the loudest he'd ever heard... I'll take his word over anyone else's given that he was there... you know... live.

I doubt they were quiet. Maybe the turned the crowd volume down so we were able to hear the ref and corners.

Seemed that way to me, as well. Everyone loves Couture, and the man took a difficult bout and came to fight: win, lose, or draw. People respect this. Conversely, while I can't claim that Canada doesn't love its fellow countrymen, a fair amount of Canadians bag on GSP for not fighting to finish anymore. My friends were there live and texted me before the fight saying, 'Money on GSP going to a boring UD'. He's loved, but don't think he doesn't get criticized here. Whereas people tend to idolize Randy. All class and grit, that guy.

I saw it live and then watched some of it again when I got home, ALOT of the noise was silenced for the broadcast, the viewers on t.v missed out on about 75% of the noise.
