Man, I have been trying to figure out why I dont like J Mac for so long, and I cant really pin point it. He could be a bit more humble i think, and that "TUF- killer comment was just way too dumb.

Where was I when Americans started bashing GSP for being Canadian? Whenever I go on this forum people talk nothing but respect for GSP. Hell, some even went so far as to say he's a short version of Fedor. Kirkardo, your just trying to start a flame war between the American posters and Canadian posters!

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

It's funny how upset the Americans have gotten on here; and started bashing Canadians for many things - even for being bashers! haha, but whatever. Hey we're all UFC/MMA fans here. No need to going after eachothers country's.

As far as what the poster said, I disagree. I feel GSP has been widely accepted in the States. It's hard not too him, no matter where you're from.

Talking

Im going to throw my 2 cents in here (About 1.7 cents US)

George is a highly skilled, likeable and humble guy who has fans everywhere. Never heard him badmouthed here or anywhere else for that matter. Not sure what the intent of this thread was - just to piss of some US posters. Worked well with some of the less intelligent readers - why contribute to a nonsensical thread like this? If he had said all "Insert racial slur here" dont like GSP because he is a bald headed white guy, administration would have shut the thread. Dont see how nationality is any different...

All this stated, pretty hard not to like my brothers to the south. After all, they are responsible for most of the 6 hours of tv programming I watched each day growing up, fake boobs and krispy creme donuts. Whats not to like?

Jonathan Goulet was gonna beat Koscheck cuz he's CANADIAN! David Loiseua should be brought back to the UFC even though he sucks now cuz he's canadian! Everything is "cuz he is canadian" to you people.
would u like to show me a few threads of people saying that certain fighters will win because they are canadian?? or are you just making that up to make us look like assholes cause in the few month i have been here i have not once said or heard anyone say that. I have heard people wishing them good luck because they are canadian but not once have i heard any stupid shit like what you are saying. I remeber also when GSP beat BJ Penn they booed GSP because he was canadian and he had to try to please them by saying that he works with many people who are american and that we are all one. Now i can understand cheering for your country but at least have some respect not to boo another person because of thier origin. So does that constitue as a bit of hating or do i also have to mention matt hughes' ignorance of saying who wants to lose to a "french man" he's canadian asshole if your gonna be a ***** at least get the ****ing country right and if you want to talk about stereotypes then lets talk about the american stereotype of all being ignorant assholes who are hated by most countrys and the people themselves dont even trust thier own givernment and think that they made an attack on themselves like you always like to talk about the 911 conspiracy great ****ing country isnt it? normally i avoid talking shit but your comments in my eyes are unacceptable

Yeah I gotta agree that when I first came here there was alot of anti-american, pro canadian posts here. It's died down, I think, because aforementioned posters are nol onger around. But the anti american stuff usually comes out when talking about the ignorant vegas crowds. Hopefully Ohio makes us all look a little better (except for the Franklin-Macdonald fight, you know everyone's gonna be cheering for Rich.

EDIT: and its obvious what the OP was set to do. I've noticed a few of his posts have seemed pretty ignorant.
