    Just saw this fake anger type of pro wrestling push with Phil Baroni, and wondering what fake rivalries have existed to sell tickets in the UFC?

    Just off the top of my head Schaub and Mitrione seemed to concoct some sort of fake marketing type rivalry for their fight.

    Any others?

    Nice guy Glover was hilarious when he said DC told him to go and talk smack at him.

    All of them, except for Bisping/Rivera and that was only non-fake from Bisping's side

    IMHO 99.999% of the time dana claims "they really hate each other" is nothing but wolf tickets!

    Pretty much 99% of drama lama's in the UFC are fake.

    Ken vs Tito seemed semi-fake, well really fake from Tito's side. I think Ken got a little annoyed with Tito but at the end they both basically said "Nice job....we made a ton of money on this"

    Rampage vs Evans seemed pretty fake to me too.

    In fact most MMA "rivalries" were fake. IT's probably harder to find ones that were actually real.

    Chuck vs Tito seemed pretty real to Chuck. I don't think he liked Tito at all.

    I think Aldo legit dislikes Conor

    They're all fake apart from Cormier/Cummins. That was scary legit. I still shudder when I hear the word "Patrick". If my name was Patrick and someone called me that I'd know it was time to throw down.

    Ronda vs anyone not named Tate.
    Anderson "he disrespected me" silva vs everyone.

    Honestly, UFC has a lot of them lately.

    When DC told Cummins that he was only going to call him Patrick now and not Pat, that was when I knew those two were going to be mortal enemies for the remainder of their natural born lives.

    *Edit: eh, Gazwald beat me to it

    I can tell you this, everytime someone speaks in another language, and the UFC use a voice-over to translate what he said, pretty much 90% of it is made up.

    I've heard fighters say things like "It's going to be a great fight for the fans" in the background, while the voice-over says something completely different like "He's got nothing on me, I'm gonna finish him wihout any problems".

    It's just the name of Tom Cruise's character from 'Eyes Wide Shut'. I'm a big Stanley Kubrick dork. Also Tom Cruise is awesome (obviously).

    It started off legit, but it was just a money-making scheme by the time the second and third fights came around.

    I remeber there being so much hype over there being bad blood and how much the two hates each other.
