You missed out, not too long, not too hard and a decent read.

Good point, TS. I don't think making your point will change much though, sadly.

You can tell plenty if someone cries robbery or not based on their judgement i.e. "Cheater Jones lost against Gus" versus "That last takedown solidified the round for GSP"

With that being said, there are some fights in which the scoring is flat-out ridiculous (Texas decision is an example), especially if its Sal D'ammato, Cecil Peoples, Adelaide Byrd or Tony Weeks just to name a few.

Cheers buddy,

as long as even a handful of people get what I'm saying, it's worth the share.

Hopefully, fans of MMA will just start to appreciate the sport more as a whole. There always seems to be things to hate about MMA from reading sherdog posts.

It's as if they're pretending to mma fans to pass as cool some where, some time, or something. How can one love martial arts and hate so many fighters?
I get it if the animosity is with the UFC or how the suits treat their fighters. I get that.

And as above poster stated, how you can hate Jon Jones for fighting for his life against Gus is beyond me. They call him 'scared', 'ducking Goose'... the man reached deep down and gave everything he got to come out on top there. He couldn't even walk to the back on his own accord.

And sherdoggers be like "hahaha, look at his face, hahaha". That's just petty.
