TS' second point is completely off base.

DC shoved/slapped Jon in the throat. That is NOT normal weigh-in behavior.

Both guys are alpha male warrior types and you cannot provoke a guy like that and not expect a retaliation. It doesn't really matter if DC is restrained at that point because Jon has gone into fight mode at that point and is trying to break his hand on DC's face.

I've seen a slew of bar fights go down the same way. As soon as one guy gives the other one a good shove/poke/slap the fight is on and no words are going to help. I once grabbed one of my angry little friends to prevent a bar fight and it took him upwards of two-three minutes to realize he couldn't move. He finally looks down to his wrist and sees that I've parked my giant white ass on a seat next to him and he's going nowhere.

Once you aggress a true fighter the thinking is out the window. Regardless of the consequences either guy faces now, in the future they would react the same. It's instinct.

Jon Jones is the most disrespectful human being I have ever seen in my life. I heard he actually takes oxygen into his body, but breathes out carbon dioxide. That mother fucker is putting all our lives at risk. Dangerous as well as classless.....
fucking lol

Is normal. Jones should have acted like a professional like Sonnen. But no, he had to play his stereotype.

Overeem, I'd take Reem in a 30 second street fight over Cain.

I wonder how Jones and Overeem will get along at Jackson's. I see sparks and tension developing. I'd still take Cain over Overeem in a 30 second street fight, though I think Cain would be more gentlemanly and Overeem would be more likely to cheap shot him.

How does is logically follow that me making an analogy means I was against what took place? And how is generating more attention for the sport a bad thing? Not to mention, who said anything about buys, I didn't say anything in that regard. Where did that come from???

Perhaps you should stop wasting time trolling the internet and actually spend more time learning the ABC's and how to read....I mean seriously, your response was an example of going full retard....wow.
gotten too.

Yeppers. Throwing a punch then a shoe is not.

Yarp. Name calling, middle fingers, forehead rubbing, hat flipping, and shoving are all pretty standard fare.

Don't think I've seen shoe chucking before though. Very Jerry Springer.
