    I'll go first

    How did Rumble get choked out by 155 pound fighter Rich Clementi (fighting at 170)?

    I just can't understand it.

    Belolator's match making and the confusing way the UFC seems to be borrowing some of it.

    A guy gets tooled on the feet for 4 min, gets a takedown but does f*ck all damage and lays on a dude. Judges award him the round.

    Baffling me for the last 12 years

    How did Conor McGregor rise to be the GOAT so incredibly fast in only 2 fights in the UFC against no big names -- it's kind of like how did that Rebecca Black song "Friday" get over 100 million views on YouTube. One of life's mysteries.

    The matchmaking. Why did it take this long to get a matchup like Brown vs. Lawler? We should be seeing exciting matchups like this every month.

    You posted this because someone mentioned Clementi in the other thread. This is like another "Look what I learned today thread."

    We had Brown/Condit lined up earlier and Brown had to drop out.
    We had Miocic/Dos Santos lined up and Dos Santos had to drop out.

    It's not like they aren't trying.

    Some of the scores judges hand in completely baffle me. I watched a fight the other night. I can't remember which one. One judge had it 30-27 for one fighter, another judge had it 30-27 for the other fighter. The third judge had it 29-28 for the winner and I think his was the score I agreed with. It just baffles me sometimes how differently judges see the same fight.

    Why the hell did Thiago Alves take down Martin Kampmann down when there was less than a minute left in the fight?

    Let's talk heavyweight championship fights. Everybody was amazed when Couture came back against Tim Sylvia but there were more interesting championship fights.
    HW champ Ricco Rodriguez a jiu jitsu black belt decides to stand and go toe to toe with the dangerous boxing of 6'10 Tim Sylvia and gets knocked out and loses his belt. Hmmm what r the chances of that happening. Good job Ricco. Way to shiw off and get KO'd by a big doofus.
    Tim Sylvia(aka big doofus) decides to take Frank Mir to the ground and then the worst thing ever happened Mir breaks Sylvia's armed with an armbar. And Sylvia was pretending like he was to continue and his arm wasn't broke. I guess he never did tapout lol
    Steve Mazzagati stops Lesnar Mir for blows to the back of the head. 20 seconds later, a hailmary knee bar that really only Mir could pull off on Lesnar

    Fans calling a dude who makes a living by stripping to the waist and fighting another man with their almost bare hands inside of a locked cage a coward.
