GSP.


I don't see why it matters I am sure there are already a lot of gay MMA fighters. Really though, someone is missing out on staring in a show on bravo and being a huge star right now.

... so him not thinking that having a gay fighter means MMA is progressing means he did not get into college?

MMA is progressing and getting more fighters and the more fighters there are the more prone it is to having more gay fighters. That is really the only argument you got with that. He had a point and you had a point before that but this kinda pushes it too far.

Yes having gay fighters is indicative of progress in a sport that has rampant homophobia (like many sporting environments do). It has nothing to do with numbers, it has to do with acceptance.

His argument was GAY FIGHTERS = PROGRESS LOLOLOL.

Its about the dumbest response I could think of. It assumes that I'm implying that progress is limited entirely to an increase in gay fighters. Obviously it isn't and I didn't imply that in anyway. I just used it as one way in which the sport has progressed. It's a positive thing in my opinion because it shows a positive, accepting, and respectful image to the general public. I would also say that fighters like GSP et al are a great example of the sports recent progress because of how much mutual respect they always show to other fighters. His counterpoint was excellent and valid though you're right.

Back on topic, the sweatshirt drama is the type of thing that gets people watching, but it's kind of tedious if you just want to watch training and fights.

if u just wanted to watch training and fights you can do that online without TUF.

TUF is a soap opera for grown men. most ppl cant admit it.

i can. TUF was perfect for a continuation for WWE fans that outgrew WWE. Still has soem BS soap opera drama but with real fights attached.

thats the appeal of TUF. ppl that say they watch only to see the fights are just lying to themselves.

Oh, I know that. I was just having so much fun with the drama and pretending I only wanted to watch training and fights, however.

Most people on here are drama queens. They say they don't like the drama but Junie Browning had the most posts and the highest ratings for his fights. A lot of people on here straight lie.
