    Most recently for me is watching Barboza turn Lee's legs into noodles only to be immediately taken down.

    Other mentions are Tate winning the stand up with Ronda but clinching with a Judo expert only to be tossed to the mat every time

    JDS, Mir, and other fighters who allow themselves to be walked up to the cage and trapped and beaten up

    Older example, watching Thiago Alves throw a fight away by going for a takedown he didn't need to go for against Martin Kampmann in the last minute of the last round in a fight he was winning. And then in general any other Barboza/Lee situation of a fighter I want to win but can't capitalize on their moment.

    What's your top picks for frustrating moments?

    The recent O'Malley fight. All the other guy had to do was stand up and O'Malley wouldn't have been able to but he decided to follow him up to the floor and run down the clock. The guy sacrificed a much-needed third round finish for a decision loss smh.

    Rumble trying to wrestle DC in their rematch instead of trying to stand and knock him out.

    Practically every Bobby Green fight.

    Was stoked when he got signed by the UFC and he started off well, then he decided to taunt instead of fight...

    Soukhamthath was the most remarkable and frustrating thing I’ve ever seen. And it’s not even close.

    Edit.

    To remind you all. That was where he broke O’Malley’s leg or close enough to it. Then decided to go to the ground. Even his own corner was screaming at him for the whole round to let him up. Because one leg kick and the ref would have ended that fight. And he lost the decision to O’Malley.

    in a glass case of emotion
    I saw bj penn at a target near the airport.

    He had a cart.

    He unloaded his wares, and rather than putting the cart in its rightful place in the cart loading/storage area, he left it Willy nilly in the parking lot. Near the airport.

    On another occasion I saw Bruce buffer (not a fighter, but still) walking across a crosswalk with a light and a walk sign. He entered into the cross walk AFTER the walk light turned in to the “don’t walk” hand.

    He kept going!!!

    Didn’t affect my life at all as it was a 15 second don’t walk hand, but it was close. I was so frustrated.

    Bektic vs Elkins

    Everyone and their mothers, including your own coaches, are screaming for you to keep the fight standing and you're spamming double legs.
