    Before the fight started they didn't even meet in the middle or anything. I understand not touching gloves but I've never seen two guys not meet in the middle unless there's really bad blood. I don't think they had any bad blood though did they?

    Lawler touched gloves all over Jake's face.

    I don't understand why people think fighters need to touch gloves.

    You've never seen two guys NOT meet in the middle? Like when they walk out to the center of the octagon and the ref goes over the rules again with them and says they can touch gloves if they want to? Maybe I'm misunderstanding you...

    Because they didn't want to. It happens every so often, especially when things start at a very fast pace or one fighter is really dangerous up close.

    Doesn't mean there's bad blood...

    Yup that's what I meant. But maybe it happens all the fucking time and I just didn't notice until now...maybe it's only for main events. I've been watching for a long time but I do smoke a lot of ganja. Oh yeah, that's what everyone's saying.

    they're in the cage to fist fight, not fist bump like a bunch of douchers.

    yeah i like it but i get why some fighters don't. and it's not always personal, it's just that they're not there to make friends.

    Are you saying they didn't touch gloves in the middle
    or
    they didn't even meet in the middle for the ref to go over a few rules quickly and then saying "If you want to touch gloves do it now"?

    Glad someone else said it.

    People seem to be shocked when fighters aren't all huggy before and after fights.
