    I was checking out a few threads where pics were posted of JDS and Roy Nelson hanging out as friends and I thought to myself I wonder how many friendships are forged through wars in the octagon.

    I think most of us when we were kids got in a fight with another kid and ended up being good friends afterwards.

    Do you all have any other examples of true friendships being forged in the cage.

    I.E. Sonnen/Okami, Barry/Cro Cop, Roy/JDS?

    i've never experienced it, but i believe its as you said, a bond between men who earned eachother's respect on an almost primal level, but it doesnt happen very often, it takes mature men i think, such as family men like Roy and JDS

    But only because Bj won. Had Matt won, BJ would still hate him.

    only mature men can get the respect through fighting. and Sonnen is the best MW LHW and P4P the best fighter in the world and people respect him after recieving a red white and blue ass kicking on a saturday night
