Also, of you think a gassed UFC HW lacks "skill or ability" then you basically don't know what you're taking about, and I'd encourage you to get in the ring with one.

Point is, there's nothing wrong with liking finishes. They're exciting, they're decisive, and HW has 'em. If you don't like HW, don't watch.
Funny of your "recent" examples one included 2 roiders and 1 sloppy as hell fight.

I'm not knocking you for enjoying it, but when I want sloppy brawls I go to worldstar. That's not why I watch MMA.

Sloppy brawlers. Cool. Let's see these "skilled" fly weights fight one.

You would be crying about how unfair it was that the HW was so much bigger.

That is the equivalent of a 5 foot 2 basketball player getting beat by a 7 foot basketball player. Fair or not....who is the better player?

There is a reason that there are no 5 foot 2 NBA players. They would get stomped.

Name one FLW fight that was a "war" that wasn't simply 2 guys hitting eachother on the chin as hard as they could 150 times without being able to knock the other one out because theyre too fucking weak.
