Does anyone else find it sickening and disgusting that both fights Anderson Silva has had in the UFC they've boo'd him? Honestly, I love the UFC, I love MMA all around, I watch it all, but sometimes these rich silver spooned bastards that get tickets to these events really get under my skin when a very deserving fighter and hard earned victory gets boo'd because their hero gets his ass handed to him...it's just..sickening.

They boo....at EVERYTHING, rather than appreciate MMA in itself and the fact these guys are giving it all for them, they sit there with their hoochie girls they brought, and boo...just revolting.

Silva has shown he's one of the classiest guys in the UFC, he's very respectful to his opponents and is just a soft spoken guy. He shared a water with Leben and even got a CHAIR for someone that was going to interview him backstage. Biggest fight of his life, probably the most memorable fight he'll ever have, and these daddy boys are BOOING him...it's sad.

I totally agree. Its discusting. Anderson doesnt deserve this kinda treatment he seems like a hell of a nice guy. Its not his fault he wins, what do they want him to do.

i didn't hear the booing but wasn't really paying attention but i have noticed how silva is very humble even after a dominant fight like leben and franlklin he only said good things about franklin which is really cool

they boo him, because anyone other than whom the UFC promotes as their top guys, is seen as an outsider or something. the crowd was basically told to boo. its like what happened with all the people who grew up with WWE, they are told who to hate, who to like, etc...

now what, are they gunna boo Silva during his, soon to come, year plus long title reign???

Yeah, I hate it when the crowd boos cause they don't know what's going on. It always happens when the fight goes to the ground and the guy on bottom has a good defense and the guy on top is trying his best to pass and the drunk a-holes in the nose bleed section start booing cause they don't see a 'hammer fist elbow' that they learned about on TUF that week.

I noticed their reaction to Wanderlei Silva as well. He would, however, "educate" them properly should him and Liddell fight. He's not the same fighter he was when he fought there the first time.

Yeah that pissed me off too. I think a large part of the Vegas crowd is just ignorant about MMA and have a low attention span. When they boo action on the ground, it's obvious they have no idea about the techninques going on and what the fighters are trying to do.

I'm not sure what the UFC can do about this. Maybe try putting in more educational bits about ground moves so the mainstream public can realize it's not just guys hugging each other.

Yeah, he didn't get the applause that he deserved. I imagine most of the fans were pissed about the short main event and the complete dominance, but what the hell are you to do when you're fighting one of the most dangerous fighters in the world? There's a lot of people sitting in those damn arenas that shouldn't be, as Joe Rogan put it there's a lot of meatheads in the audience sucking back Budwisers instead of focusing on the technicality of the fight.

most of the people there buyt cikets cause dana called them and asked them to show up.....there are few celebrities that go to UFC and know what they are talking about, i can bank on the fact that paris hilton knows jack shit about UFc...she just wants to **** up the sport a lil more.....the crowd booing isnt a bad thing though, cause it kinda tells the guys in the ring they arent killing eachother....but still, its disrespectful to the fighters, and it should only happen to the lower guys on the card lol

Booing at UFC

I hear ya on this topic... this is what I posted on My Myspace blog on July 10th. I was kinda mad.:mad:

I have something to say to the fans watching live at the Mandalay Bay who boo'd our GREAT fighters.
SHAME ON YOU!
What right do you have to boo at these amazing athletes... just because they may not look to you like they are doing anything - once they step into that cage they are on and in the zone and whether they are circling or clenching they deserve your respect - 100% These boys work very hard and are amazing at what they do and how they do it and they deserve the utmost respect from the fans.
Let me see you get your ass in the cage with these guy - then we'll see something to boo at - YOU!
To all the fighters - CHEERS AND RESPECT from me!
- JustJanis the BadHabitBabe MMA/UFC Fan!
PS... And to the fans who boo'd at Tito - shame on you - he fought a great fight - we would have loved to see more but that is the way it went and he deserved nothing but your appreciation.

Yep they straight booed Anderson when he won. I notice probably 90 percent of the people were rooting for Rich.
of course

Dana promoted rich like he was the All American Champion Fighter.. and he got dominated... None of them expected that...

but then again.. i love how UFC will stick to showing ppl like Paris Hiltons response to a Knock Out rather then Fighting Pioneer's like Sakuraba

Good idea. I am still a big noob to MMA, but when I first started watching I would get really bored during the ground parts...but as I watched more and learned the technical side of things, mainly from joe rogan's explenations mind you, I have come to appreciate how insanely hard those guys are usually working when on the ground and I really like it.

Yeah it was BS. I think I posted something like "poor Anderson" because they booed him.

I was at UFC 61 when they had no idea about Silva walking in the Octagon. A lot of inept people at the events.
