    The fact that you were annoyed enough to go back and actually count how many videos you posted, and how many of said videos were related to Conor shows that you were indeed, triggered. :D
     
  2. It was more fun around 2009 during the Lesnar boom imo.

    But maybe my life just sucked less then.

    The fact that you think it takes a long time to calculate the percentage of 11 videos and you post like a 6 year old brat "I can do whatever I want" shows that Sherdog's age restriction isn't working.

    I'm definitely on the 2008-09 side, because the champions were better and the big main events were much more meaningful. However, the average level of competition has dramatically improved since then and if i had the time to rewatch and rate all the fights from each calendar year it wouldn't surprise me if i ended up with more enjoyable ones in 2016 than in any previous year.

    Because they finally found their right guy, right place, right time. Pretty much like WWF back in the late 90s with Steve Austin.

    It´s like drugs, later you´re just chasing your first high, it´s nothing like 10 years ago, not cause of the fights, but because it was my first mma watching then, actually 11.5 years ago.

    Special like the Olympics. I liked MMA back when the guys fought and didn't run around like soap opera stars. I would say it was much better when Fedor, Silva, and GSP were on top. There were some good fights this year, but a ton of shit to top it off. There was like what, 83 fights cancelled to injury? And 26 title fights "not" made because the champ refused? It's like the fucking millennials took over.

    You gotta look at it from the standpoint that there were more fights cancelled due to injury than they used to have all year in the UFC... and it was still a very good year for fights! The sheer amount of events has me pretty happy. It's rare you have to go more than 2 weeks between shows, which is nice.

    Epic year for sure. This is the year where I was able to host get-togethers with friends to watch UFC. The FIRST TIME ever. Feels good.

    My people were mostly interested in high profile boxing matches featuring Pacquiao, Mayweather, etc. not so much MMA, but with the increased popularity of the sport [Thanks in no small part to Conor McGregor] I was able to invite friends to bet and drink together while watching UFC 196, 198, 200, 202, and 205.
