    The summer kickoff was just so horrible. It had WME shite spread all over it. Looked like they had been given lines to say to one another. I actually felt a bit sick listening to Nunes and Shevchenko.


    Time Stamped


    Nunes actually looked relieved when it was over to her credit. If it doesn't come naturally then they shouldn't have to say anything about their opponent.

    I don't mind trash talk when it's genuine like after Bisping beat Rockhold who was then ultra salty at the post fight presser. That was funny and that was genuine distaste they had for one another.

    But this pre-planned stuff is just horrible. WME is horrble.

    The commission needs to suspend/fine anyone guilty/suspected of fake trash talk.

    These guys literally hated each other -or at least they hated Ali.

    "Truth is, I'd like to rumble with that sucker again -- beat him up piece by piece and mail him back to Jesus. ... Now people ask me if I feel bad for him, now that things aren't going so well for him. Nope. I don't. Fact is, I don't give a damn. They want me to love him, but I'll open up the graveyard and bury his ass when the Lord chooses to take him." ~Joe Frazier in Old Age

    See this shit was real bad blood and THAT is interesting to watch play out. Manufactured fake WWE shit is pathetic and you guys who need it to make it 'less boring' need to stop eating so much soy. Shits for girls.

    MMA fighters turning themselves in to "dude bro alphas" is just feeding an old stereotype and bringing the sport back.

    Not comparable to WWE/Conor like manufactured tripe. Ali completely turned on Frazier after Joe had lent him money and testified to Congress to reinstate Ali after his refusal to go to war. Part showmanship/part Civil Right Crusader/part pride hurt a$$hole -Ali went on to call Joe a 'White man's hero' and 'Uncle Tom' to the point Frazier needed 24 hour police protection and kids getting beat up at school.

    Thats way beyond these pedantic "your a bitch! No YOUR the bitch bitch" nonsense we see today. Worlds apart.

    Agreed. Everyone wants to be like Conor...but they aren't even close. Maia stayed true to himself.

    I also hate it. Cheapens the sport. I refuse to watch face-offs and Weigh ins and pre-fight hype for this reason precisely . I want to see the fight . Sometimes I will watch a post fight analysis or press conference . The hype before hand really means nothing in regards to who is actually more skilled and most likely to win. I also hate that it appeals to the lowest common denominator among us .

    Does nothing for me.
    Never did.

    I guess it works though, and I'm just in the minority.
