Fucking lol. Give them robot suits to wear. That would be awesome.

Seriously, I *know* they are talented, athletic, put on great fights, would kick the shit out of anybody on the street three times their size, etc etc. And there's no question that they have a fan following. But it's just so damned hard to be entertained by these tiny guys.

I'm with smaller refs, maybe midgets.

Pull your head out of your ass and enjoy the fights? Benavidez got a 1 punch KO...

Instead of having the usual ring girls in between each round, trade in arianny and co for a group of heavily muscled men who come out in speedos and pose/look menacing in between each round. This way viewers can still get their freakshow/muscle fix from the 'ring dudes' whilst having an extremely enjoyable fight to watch that doesn't slow to a crawl after the first 2 minutes.

You mean Tim Sylvia? He's been working hard to get in shape for his UFC comeback.

This kind of bizarre post doesn't help either. It's like this small guy fighter issue attracts the ire of a certain group of short-statured males with a certain complex.

But hey yeah, talented guys, not like I skip their fights. Maybe they will grow on me.

at least the delusion that the flies can't finish a fight seems to be losing steam after Benevidez tko'd Urishitani

I don't know what's funnier, the poll or the people so hell bent on defending the small guys

there should've been a secondary poll asking for the poster's height and their response to the original poll

you clearly are at least 5'7 160lbs
