The only reason I can think of as to why some guys find lighter weight classes to be boring is that their small stature does nothing to stimulate the comic-book hero power fantasies of beta males, nor the repressed sexual fantasies of closet homosexuals. Whether they realize it or not, some of these guys are stimulated emotionally by the sight of huge guys like Alistair Overeem, so when Joseph Benavidez fails to give them the same stimulation, they say he's a boring fighter, no matter how exciting his fights actually are. No visual stimulation = no emotional stimulation = boredom.
I like watching people perform various martial arts. I couldn't care less whether or not I felt like "I could beat that guy up." The people who think like that need to look at themselves and ask why it matters at all whether they feel they can beat up the person they are watching on TV or not. Reeks like insecurity to me. Does Fedor not watch MMA because he feels like he could beat everybody?
JDS = Favorite Fighter Ever
No, making a thread to point out Dana White's latest lie or self-contradiction is not going to hurt Zuffa. In fact, you're playing right into their hands.
