    ...after announcing to the world early on that "WMMA is not for me" and "I'll never watch a minute of TUF 18", then sneaks in each and every week's PBP discussion for the sole pupose of grieving how much they supposedly-hate to watch the show?

    No one knows the answer to your question and does not pertain to MMA. If you want a psychological analysts try a forum related to the human mind.

    So you think it has more to do with Mental/Psychological issues rather than MMA itself?

    Reasonable theory. Their strange behavior do seems to be different than normal people.

    I brought up a similar question a few weeks ago. Its like calling a sex hot line just to say "I'm not in the mood". Or calling in to a television poll to tell everyone you're undecided. To each his own, but its really pretty simple: if you don't like WMMA, don't tune in.

    Hate-watching is a real thing.

    I wasn't trying to answer your question. Your question made no sense.

    There is a difference between hating the show and thinking that what is going on there is cringeworthy. TUF 18 captured some of the most awkward and repulsive moments in sports/television history, it really did. But was it interesting to watch? Heeeell yeah.

    I did not ask a question so I don't know what you are referring to. Nice try though...

    That bi-polar shit ain't normal, man. You're supposed to be able to enjoy the things you like, and stay away from things you (claim to) hate, not the reverse.

    I sincerely hope our fellow Sherdoggers who suffers from this condition to get tested for mental disorders, just to be safe.

    You're talking in absolutes.

    People who don't want to pay $$$ for WMMA might watch TUF for the drama.

    There can be pleasure in watching train wrecks/people and things you don't like though.

    Kind of like watching all the coo coo people on American Idol/X Factor can at times be more entertaining than watching people who actually know how to sing.
