    1. Why all the hate for Bruce Buffer?

    2. Why do people discredit fighters based on MMA Math?

    3. Why do people preach that a fighter is untested, undeserving or overrated after every fight?

    Since i already have this topic, I'm going to include a few of the "repeated" subjects i see on the forums.

    • Whats with all the Jones/Gus/Cormier threads discussing who should be favorite? Is one not enough? I see people claiming that Gus should be the favorite leading into this fight, which to me, seems insane. He's not the champion, and whether you like it or not, he just lost to Jones.
    • Does your hate for a fighter rid you of common sense? I also think Jones is all over the place when it comes to his personal life and how he acts, i personally think he's trying to be a role model, but failing because of his natural tendancies. Hes still just a kid. I'm not sure how this correlates into your opinion of his skill level, which is hes proved time and time again.
    • People saying Cormier is untested? You can NOT say that his HW accomplishments don't apply at LHW when you also discredit Jones for being larger than all his opponents. You lose any type of credibility by having double standards.

      My prediction for Jones vs Gus II:
    • I think Gus is a good fighter, I also think Gus might have had his one chance to beat Jones. I PERSONALLY think that Jones looked off, this might be due to Gus's performance making him look off... but I think when you look at how they both performed, Jones left more room for improvement than Gus.
    • That being said i feel like Jones will bring a better gameplan to the table this time and be more focus'd on proving a point. Round III TKO

    Just kidding dude. If you let all the nonsense get to you, you'd be better closing your account.

    There are a lot of retards and trolls lurking round these parts.

    Pick your battles wisely. Trying to have a sensible debate with a tard or troll can be very frustrating!

    A lot of smart and funny punters on here too.

    okay i answered some of your questions. sorry i'm not the sherdog composite poster you seem to be addressing. actually, this is the new annoying trend on sherdog: every asshole and his brother makes threads criticizing the supposed "general opinion" of sherdog or some "typical sherdogger." this is a waste of time. let's just discuss fights/fighters/mma and stop making threads about the kinds of threads you don't like.

    1. We gotta hate on something. Hating on fighters, Dana White, Joe Rogan, Bill Goldberg, ourselves, religious people, gay people, pro-gay people, anti-gay people, people who are indifferent about gays, just isn't enough. So we gotta get Buffer in there.

    2. Even though it's stupid, it does make a little sense. You'll always look at how different people handled the same opponent.

    3. Cause there's as many people saying that they're GOATs so those people gotta cancel it out. There's no middle on Sherdog.

    This is my real account. I usually come here after watching the live events to see what peoples opinions are regarding the results and what not. I've only recently felt the need to post something.

    Also to clarify the "Bruce Buffer" portion of my post... Its mainly because this is not the first time i have seen a multi-page thread hating on him.

    I did read the op, general consensus is sherdog is dominated by massive jebs, who sit behind their computer desk attacking people they're envious of. As for the same threads being posted and then re-posted, people are fucking lazy or just inept.

    Welcome to hell.

    The first fight was so close you cant really say its insane to think Gus as the favourite in the rematch just because he lost. Also the fact Jones is the champ isnt really an argument at all.

    That just sounds silly.

    You are just saying things without any arguments. It seems to me you arent really aware about Gustafssons abilities and potential at all.

    I'm thinking that whenever the UFC hosts a non-Buffer event, fans have something to compare his style to, and are able to compare and contrast and voice their pleasure or displeasure. Same goes for the rampant hate/comparison in commentary teams when Rogan/Goldie are not in charge of calling the event. I'm personally not a fan of Buffer, but just a matter of personal opinion I guess.

    I expected a response like this from you :) I actually read that thread you created a few days ago where you referred to Jon as Jonathon about 15 times, it came off really creepy personally. Don't get me wrong, i actually really like Gus, he's done nothing to warrant any kind of hate, this is simply my personal opinion which is why i capitalized the word "personal"

    It cant be worse than the old UFC forums.. I was "Double_Tap" over there until they changed them back in 2011/2012. That place was cancer in its truest form :p

    Thanks, I'll test the waters a bit first :)

    If I had a nickel for every time a white belt said it was his only account mayweather would be mowing my lawn.

    My personal fave of all time is Lenne Hardt (Pride, One FC), and she is WAY over the top, and generally incites the same love/hate reaction and discussion as Buffer does.
