    I didnt get it at first but now that I think about it, this is a combat sport like boxing. People die every year because its a dangerous sport. How awful would it look if some guy lost his life while people were cheering that? it would be terrible for the sport and is just a bad thing to do. Fighters take their lives in their own hands everytime they enter the cage or ring and i think its time everyone showed some respect for that.

    It doesn't really bother me, but the brazilians also shouldn't be crying when a fighter fires back at them, just as said fighter shouldn't cry when they ALSO respond, in turn. All's fair in love & war. Shit's like a Merry-Go-Round of hostility. lol

    Well, it’s just an expression really.

    “We will rock you” isn’t supposed to be taken literally either

    I used to find it annoying, but now I look forward to it just to hear the whole crowd be silenced whenever their dude loses.

    That shit's fun.

    It's not that big of a deal. If you're referencing Colby Covington I think he was more offended by the things that happened to him BEFORE the fight.

    It's all in fun. We don't all need to be so sensitive.

    If a fighter dies in competition, I don't think people's focus will be on what the crowd was chanting.

    Exactly. Brazilian fans are overly sensitive. Their antics leading up to the fight is what, right or wrong, drove Colby to say what he did. This is why my favorite fights are when a Brazilian in Brazil gets knocked out cold. The butt-hurt driven silence that ensues is pure gold.

    The difference is the odds of being killed in a fight are actually real. Unless you're living in the middle of buttfuck nowhere India, you aren't gonna be stoned to death.

    Doesn't bother me, because they are such a shitty group of people from a shit hole country they get a pass. If it was said in English they would probably stop the broadcast

    brazilians are cringy as fuck.. but some ppl need to realize that stupid chant comes mostly from a football mentallity (hence idiotic masses).

    and somehow became a chant for them (not necessarily wishing death towards a competitor).

    they are just being stupid.

    conversely, i remember back in the day, ufc dark ages, when vitor the phenom.belfort won he climbed that octagon and cheered jiu jit su... while randy couture would go all chauvinistic and chanted the mongoloid us a us a.

    so fuck it, people are stupid.
    masses are very stupid.
    so am.i
    and so is your mom

    I have no problem with WORDS. Say whatever you want to the athletes, call 'em every name in the book. But when people throw things at you that's crossing the line. Only chicken shits do that and they only do it because they know there are no consequences when they're part of a mob.

    But Werdum wasn't part of a mob.

    Edit: Also, chicken shits doing things only because they know there are no consequences? I thought you were DEFENDING Colby. Leave the man alone on Thanksgiving, mate.

    What the hell does Werdum have to do with what I said? I didn't defend Colby. What he said was stupid and wrong in my opinion, but there was a reason he said it. If people threw shit at me for a week before a fight then maybe I'd be a little pissed off too. If he prefaced his comments by saying, "All the people who assaulted me with objects and water this week are filthy animals" then I wouldn't have had a problem with it. But he called the whole country filthy animals. There's a difference.

    Oh, OK, so you agree that Colby's comments were unprovoked. I don't know why you're saying that other people "drove" Colby to say what he did, then. He was "exercising free speech", like all his defenders keep saying. Regardless of whether or not he deserves to have a toy thrown at him, he's responsible for his own words.
