Thats why there are all these school shootings as well. Hell in my country you have almost zero chance to get a license for a gun. Very few criminals have firearms. You can get it illegally of course, but its very hard and you have to know your share of shady people. So its really hard.
And that is why we are 8 on the world safest list. Much better than USA which is on 100 - 120.
Just think about it. Those two idiots who shot all those kids at the Columbine school would never been able to get guns in my country. Would they stab everyvone instead? Did it help others that they are allowed have guns? I think they would just come out from puberty and their urges for killing would maybe stop. And voila disaster - prevented.
Wow only 8? what a shithole you live in. Buncha savages. My country is #2

Going for the same takedown after expending energy going for the initial one and having your opponent expecting it now makes a second takedown 100x harder to complete, and Mendes still completed it.

Don't worry, your delusion is still safe as long as Aldo is champ, just like your delusion regarding Barao was safe (until Dillashaw absolutely embarrassed him).
Why do you think i am an aldo fan? Something i said or it suits your argument?

The fence grab was dodgy but it is in no way the reason mendes lost.


Oh and 100 times....... you really want to be taken seriously?????

Yeah I agree this guy is getting annoying with his not wanting to fight in Brazil. If he really wants to be champion he will fight Aldo anywhere he is told to fight. He has not fought anybody that is good besides Nik Lentz who he had problems with. Cub would be a great choice or if not have Frankie Edgar fight Aldo I am sure he would like another shot at the champ. I believe that Mendes should fight either Cub or Edgar before he fights Aldo that way he proves he is worthy of title shot.

He isn't in a position to be making demands but I can't blame anyone not wanting to go to Brazil.

Not to mention all the taxes that will take away from your earnings.

I'm with Mendes on this one.
bigot is strong with this one

Aldo is the champ. Champs should be able to fight where they want.

Aldo pulled out of a scheduled fight and RUINED and cancelled an entire event. He screwed over every fighter on that card. He shouldn't dictate the location of the rematch and be rewarded for fucking over every fighter on a card.

1) Aldo didn't pull out because he didn't want to fight. He got injured. The UFC always checks injured fighters with their own doctors, to make sure it is real. If you don't know that by now, you should STFU and check.

2) Very dumb of you to think Aldo could simply pull out of the card "and RUIN & cancel an entire event" while "fucking over every fighter on a card". Actually, this is so stupid, that in that case, you could bet your house and yearly income that Dana would have some words for the media. He did not have a problem in doing so against Jon. I am sure he would not have any issues doing to a lesser draw either!

3) Oh! and Aldo never requested or lobbied the fight to happen in Brazil. Mendes is assuming it (or talking hypothetically).
