    Face it, ina. Sport like MMA your favorite fighter is probably a sore loser

    From excuses like he was tree times the size of me in there, to phantom injuries, to I was winning but I just got caught
    Something about MMA inspires excuses for every high profile lost at every turn

    Who are the most classy losers in MMA that buck this trend?

    My opinion is by no means comprehensive, but for me the first guy to come to mind is

    Dominick Cruz

    Dominick Cruz is the only non-felon MMA fighter I dislike
    But after getting styled on by Coby Gebhart, he took the loss like a man made no excuses and stood in front of the media to answer every question. Aside from the one corny ass quote “why would I sit, I’ve always been on my feet” or whatever, the Q&A sounded just like a normal post fight if he had won. Except obviously... he lost.
    Hespect to the Dominator
    Hopefully after he gets his shit pushed up by Lineker he’s the same

    Also Cain
    “It was not me noche”

    I thought Condit showed great class after his loss against Lawler. Even more so when you consider how close he’d just come to winning the title.

    I don't recall him being a sore loser EVER.
    And he was super humble when he won too.

    > Of All the Brazilians you have fought, who was the toughest?

    SAKU: Allan Goes. In that fight, I fought his style, not mine.
    I think I lost that fight [special Fight Configuration: was ruled a Draw]
