What a dumbass. I've always liked Hulk, but come on...

A. How would he know?
B. Get his old, fat, hip-replaced ass in there and see how real he thinks it is.

Sounds to me like Hogan is saying that to try to protect his friend. Hogan knows what it's like to be in entertainment fighting (even if wrestling is fake). A lot of wrestlers get pushed to the edge just to keep the fans happy so they can keep their jobs. The same can be siad about the UFC. There are a lot of great fighters out there and the UFC has a lot of them but it's a "work-shoot" Some people are given more chances in the UFC than others. The UFC let a lot of good fighters go because they either couldn't get along or the fighter lost a couple and the ratings for that fighter were down.

Just look at Tim Sylvia vs. Tito....Sylvia was getting payed around 100k per title defense. Tito got payed twice that just to challenge Chuck fo the title. mean while Jeff Monson (who faught through a lot of people to get his shot) ended up with only a small 13k to face Sylvia. These fighters still have to pay the bills. In events like Tennis, Golf, Poker, etc... You get paid on how well you do the event you are playing, not whether or not the fans like you.

In that respect I say "Bravo Mr. Hogan!"


p.s. He only really brought it up to protect his friend. He knows that someday his friend could get really hurt because the contact it real and the MMA world could just drop him like a bad habbit.

"You can light a fire for a man and he will be warm for a day."
OR
"You can light a man on fire and he'll be warm for a lifetime."

My Top 6
BW = Miguel Torres
LW = Tyson Griffin
WW = GSP
MW = Gegard Mousasi
LHW = Lyota Machida
HW = Fedor

Good post brother! I agree with you all the way. And Hogan is not saying that the UFC is not real. Come on, I dont think he is that stupid.

Read. He is stating that UFC is fake.

"Hogan said 'whatever brother' and 'to wake up and smell the dog s***' regarding UFC's legitimacy. Hogan said Brent has no idea because he never had a match."

And....?!?! He still didn't say it was fake. Please prove your point. Get an interview of him saying that "UFC is fake." in about those words and I'd fully agree with you and I'd shut the hell up and change my sig to say "All-Star rules and I suck!" for a month.

Hulk Hogan is full of shit. Nowadays, most of the stuff that comes out of his mouth is laughably ridiculous.

This is nothing knew. An old carny speaking old carny folk talk.

What the hell is a work-shoot again? Well if Hogan was saying that the UFC is fake and the fights are dogsh*t then obviously he is a dumb ass.

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 dont know how anyone can think the UFC is fake. Maybe there are a work or 2 once in a great while but no way is it fake. Ask Nate Quarry if the UFC is fake.
