    I've always been a fan and that comment was pretty disappointing. You cannot be bitter and mad at the world and the UFC if you got TKOd, even if the TKO was a lucky one or just a mistake on your side.
    And YES it's the crowds and people buying PPVs who are actually paying you, for if there was no one watching the sport wouldn't even exist.
    I expect and apologee and if other fighters actually agree with what he said then I'm glad they don't get NFL or soccer money. In your own interest, as an athlete, you should never be disrespectful towards the fans, cause that's where the money really is.

    Sorry, he said the bills not the cheques...still, lame comment

    I hated when he made a disgusted look when one judge read a 29-28 score. He clearly still won the fight on that scorecard and showed bad sportsmanship.

    If you want Mousasi to apologize, why don't you ask him face to face ?

    Whoa WTF man. Some of you guys are just lost. I wouldn't call a man with a portfolio of properties, a loving family and good health a loser in life. Feel free to compare yourself.

    It's not his first language.

    I took it to mean "the crowd don't have to pay the bills at home"

    i.e He doesn't want to risk losing a fight and miss out on cash; not when he has bills to pay.

    how was he wrong?

    if he tries to please the fans and loses, he makes less money. if he plays it safe and makes sure he wins (even if it disappoints the fans), he makes more money.

    his job is to win fights, not appease the masses.

    This thread and most of the replies shows the entitled nature of sports fans. He owes you nothing, he shouldn't have to be thankful to you.

    Get over yourself, TS!

    The crowd booing was dumb. It was a good fight. They don't have to be swinging for the fences in the last 20 seconds for it to have been a good and entertaining fight.

    He can't because he posts online and Mousasi is a success story.

    The UFC don't often renew contracts for fighters who are on big money and don't attract much attention, John Fitch and Jake Shields for example and Brandon Vera too. If I was in his shoes I'd fight smart and I'd want to put on a performance too, find a balance.

    I wouldn't call a man with a flourishing business, a beautiful family, good health, and a reputation that commands respect in MMA that beat me a steroid and a greaser.

    ha, im not a mousasi fan, but the guy went overboard

    it is quite known that mousasi is smart with his finances, with his money, invest and shit. i do agree that hes a sore loser, but other than that

    Being annoyed at bad judging has nothing to do with sportsmanship.

    crowds seem to boo at almost everything and it's annoying as fuck. moose isn't the first and he won't be the last to be fed up with the crowd after a win
