    It annoys me when two fighters touch gloves or hug it out in the middle of a freakin fight. I just feel like it takes away from the intensity of the fight when they are overly respectful to each other.

    In my opinion, a simple touch of the gloves before the fight starts should be it. No touching gloves or hugging in between rounds or during the fight.

    Take all the time you want to show each other respect after it's over but don't do that shit during the fight.

    What do you guys think, does it bother you or you don't mind?

    all fighters should touch gloves pre fight

    then once the bell rings

    fight

    i think it's stupid but if fighters want to do it
    oh well
    just don't bitch if a fighter throws a cheap shot

    I don't mind if two fighters are really going at it but when they're point fighting it bothers me.

    They can do whatever they want as long as it's after the fight.

    This.

    When the fight starts, stop the bro-hug shit.

    Throw down, and when it's all over, then you can be budz again.

    Didn’t GSP hug Fitch or someone at the start of a round then continued a one-sided beatdown?

    Depends... Sometimes, when it´s really high-level striking, they both acknowledge it..

    Still, a lil smile might be enough, like btw B-Hop & RJJ 2 for instance..
