    For those of you that can't seem to wrap your mind around the definition of hype....
    hype
    /hīp/
    Noun
    Extravagant or intensive publicity or promotion.


    Who do you think may be the next hype train to get derailed?
    I think there's a possibility Glover Teixeira's career could stall, maybe Weidman's, or Daniel Cormier's.
    Who's hype train do you think is next?

    Cormier does leave himself open in the striking game, although he can definitely punish people on their feet.


    [​IMG]
    Teixeira appears open to a good wrestler who has a heavy chin. would love to see him fight hendo.


    [​IMG]
    Weidman sometimes loses focus although he's very dominant. Would a more skilled striker be able to take advantage? I think Bisping would be a great match (ducks head from Bisping haters throwing things)

    Glover, as soon as he fights a notable fighter.

    Aldo too, Frankie's going to win a very lopsided decision.

    Show some respect for what these guys have already accomplished. It's guys like you who sit around waiting to discredit top guys that makes Sherdog a lot worse than it needs to be.

    Only guy on your list that could be considered hype is Glover both DC and Weidman are as legit as they come.

    I think you are very very confused about what i'm trying to say. a Hype Train as in people who are saying these guys are the best in the world. stop being so sensitive its ridiculous. Where did i discredit anything these guys have done? point it out to me. Jesus Christ you can't say one thing about a fighters technique, or point out that you think they might exit the top 5 rankings soon without people saying your fighter bashing. no sir, it's people like YOU who make Sherdog worse than it needs to be.

    Glover could very well lose to Rampage.
    Overeem could lose to JDS or Cain
    Weidman and Lombard could surely lose to Anderson.

    Agreed. These people are so annoying. Cormier has already beaten Barnett and Bigfoot. It's not hype if you're the #3 HW in the world. Weidman has 2 solid wins as well.

    It's like if you're not the champ, you're hype. Hype is the most overused word on sherdog in 2012.

    Weidman and Cormier have multiple top 10 wins...

    Only fighters who have hypetrains are those with no top 10 wins but people are claiming them to already be ready for a title shot. Promising prospects and fighters with top 10 wins are not hypetrains imo.

    Then phrase your thoughts better if you don't want to be misunderstood.

    Cormier and Weidman ARE among the very best in the world, they have proven that.

    I think Condit will beat Rory Mac a second time. Does it suffice?

    I think Renan Barao could very well lose to Michael McDonald... but not sure if that qualifies.
