I kinda find it funny that alot of you guys talk shit about alot of fighters but not alot of you all fight.


so.....hypocrits?

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

I think Dana White made a mistake bringing some of these trainers on the show. Randy Couture, GSP, Chuck Liddell and Mark Dellagrotte were all cool! It was a big mistake bringing Rich Franklin, Matt Hughes, and Mark Laimon on to the show. They were defintly brought here to create drama and nothing more.

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

The best part of Serra's tirade after he cut Laimon down to size was when you watch Matt Hughes' face.

His expression says: WTF did I just start? I just figured I'd start a little shit and get some laughs. Shit, Serra's really lighting this guy on fire.

I was laughing my head off on Thursday night when I saw it. Laimon can say what he wants. But, as a professional, he should show more respect for fighters PERIOD.

Fedor sleeps with a night light. Not because Fedor is afraid of the dark, but the dark is afraid of Fedor.

I'm not a Laimon fan but one thing to understand is that he's a BJJ coach not a MMA fighter. At least Laimon is smart enough to understand that he's not well rounded enough to get in the cage.

I just saw the episode today where Serra confronted Laimon. It was hilarious. Hughes seems like kind of an ass. GSP should've tooken his belt a bit early if you ask me. It was funny as hell though. Hughes is in the back laughing it up. Laimon is sittin there speechless pretty much the whole time. And the other fighters were like HOLY SHIT he actually told him up.

We're talking about two different things here.

I think fans of a sport are allowed to voice their opinions, however poorly-informed they may be. We buy the tickets, the pay-per-views, the t-shirts. So I don't think it's hypocritical of a fan to make over-the-top comments about a fighter (although I don't particularly care for it myself).

But Laimon's not just a fan or some yahoo on a barstool. He's a trainer. He's been around MMA long enough to know what it takes to get in the ring/octagon. I think it really hurts his professional credibility to disrespect fighters the way he does when he is unwilling (or unable) to do what they do.

Guys like him are the reason people say "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach."

All that to say I thought he came across as a complete prick.

I hope it's not taboo to ressurect an old thread here.

Serra's assertion that he "does not fight" is only kinda true. He doesn't fight MMA, but he is a world submission and grappling expert who has beaten a lot of tough opponents in BJJ and grappling tournaments.
You don't have to be a total MMA fighter to coach well, and from what I've seen on the show he coaches what he is best at, BJJ. I've never seen him try to teach standup striking, for instance.

In the context of dissing the Royce's MMA skills, he really should be more respectful since he doesn't fight MMA. But he is hardly some "average fan" like some people claim. He may be an asshole, but he is a grappling and submissions savant.
