    Not true.

    We also dont respect blacks, asians, indians, mexicans, europeans, brazilians, gays, lesbians, transvestites, 2 slice toasters, automatic transmissions, liberals, conservatives, Justin Trudeau and anything other than white american heterosecuals really.

    Trump bless god.

    Nope, nobody at all cares about the FLW division. Look at the PPV numbers....

    As far as WMMA goes, I think that most people on here just want it to be separated from real MMA. You know, like it is in other sports. Separate men's and women's leagues. Nobody's complaining about Invicta. Just stop mixing male and female fights on the same cards.

    Probably not, but it's likely the most visible one that does (to be fair I don't see much hate for grappling).

    Can't handle brutal honesty and dickishness then this probably isn't the place for you.

    Why would MMA be bigger than kickboxing etc if we didnt respect grappling and wrestling. Suck a fat one you damn manlet.

    Literally 2/3 of the biggest PPV stars are grapplers.

    A lot of people don't respect being respectful or giving respect. I think if a guy saved 23 blind puppies from drowning in a partially frozen lake someone would still talk shit on here.

    Well I mean the promotion is the one that doesn't give a shit about flyweights since White threatens to cut it, White only cares about of WMMA if he's flying one of the girls in the division around in his private jet, and he cuts pure wrestlers the first chance he gets because he finds them boring and dangerous for the guys he has hard ons for, it's not really a sherdog or online issue.

    I think it’s the quality of flyweight and wmma fights the doggies have a problem with, not the concept itself. I think flyweight would get more support if they could make good fights but they can’t. And look at how thin 135 is. Without 125 all those fighters would go to 135 and it would make one compelling division vs two struggling ones.

    And as for women, the UFC has crutched on them and puts on way too many low quality fights to fill their enormous schedule of cards. There are only a handful of high level wmma fights and they should focus on those and put the rest in fight pass and I bet you see more support from the doggies.

    As for grappling/wrestling, the biggest circulating myth by mma elitist is that casuals and medium-cores don’t like it, but that’s bullshit that can be proven wrong over and over again by looking at the support behind fighters like Ferguson, Jacare, Ortega, Khabib, etc. We love grappling, we just hate lay n pray.

    I for one, will never get tired of seeing a sweet ass blast double leg takedown followed by some Ground and Pound. I will always tune into to see a Jessica Andrade, Claudia, Cyborg, JJ, and Rose Namajunas fight, and will always respect MM. I however do not speak for the majority, all I can say is that.
