    I decided to come up with of list of common train of thoughts that I have seen on many threads and some really me laugh with the logic behind it such as:

    Fighter A beat Fighter B. Fighter B beat Fighter C, therefore Fighter A will beat fighter C. MMAth.

    Having a wrestling background=cardio for days

    Fighter A knocks out Fighter B. Now Fighter B who has never been KO'ed has a glass chin and has been exposed.

    Fighter A wins a close decision over Fighter B but the decision could of gone either way. So that means Fighter A robbed Fighter B or the judges are blind.

    A champion of a certain division does not feel like either moving up or down a weight class means that champion is ducking another champion.

    Short winning streak=Goat in the making and you heard it here first.

    I probably left many out but please feel free to add on to the many outlandish things sherdoggers say.

    brilliant list.

    too drunk to think of more right now.

    although maybe throw in
    - undefeated for a decade, lose three straight against improving top tier shows you fought cans your whole career?

    Whenever a fighter has ADCC credentials people act like ending on the ground with him immediately means game over.

    Fighter A has K-1 credentials = Fighter B has 0 chance of winning in the stand up exchanges.

    Fighter A got a questionable decision from the judges. So logically(in eyes of Sherdoggers) he will lose his next fight because of the scorecards the judges had in a fight from months ago against comepltely different opponnent.

    Fighter A has better more likeable personality then Fighter B. Fighter A will automatically win the MMA battle by wide margin.

    Fighter A beats fighter B in a close decision. Fighter B's fans say he was robbed, fighter A's fans/fighter B's haters say fighter A destroyed fighter B.

    You're not a dominant champion unless you finish fights. It doesn't matter how many one sided ud's you've had in a row.

    Also if you lose one fight via lay n pray it doesn't matter how many wrestlers you stuff after that or how much you've improved you're still susceptible to lnp (pettis)

    Making conclusions because of how someone looks at the weigh in... and not realizing the more schredded the guy looks.. the bigger the chance he is completely dehydrated and will have a hard time the next day.

    Was going to post this as well. Disagreeing with someone more than once means you are losing your shit and having a melt down.

    Fighting hard, leaving it all in the octagon and beating top tier opponents to decision = point fighting

    Fighter A is underpaid jk

    Someone looks shredded/huge for his next fight = going to dominate his opponent

    it's so funny how people take their belts so serious on this site. note to self: it goes by the amount of posts not the knowledge of the post. don't get me wrong some ppl know what they're talking about, the rest of them (which is about 85%) don't know shit and try posting in every thread just to appear like they know what they're talking about

    A fight between fighter A and B ended spectacularly. Therefore a rematch is unlikely to end the same way. Therefore the first fight was a fluke or luck.

    Fighter with good wrestling credentials would be undefeated if he used his wrestling more. I've seen someone say that for Diego Sanchez even though in his last 3 fights he got stuffed 20 times and landed only 2 TDs lol.
