And I was disagreeing with that. When it comes to picking challengers, there's some disagreement on the board as to whether it's good business or inappropriate behavior. But I don't see many people saying Silva shouln't but excusing other champs for doing it, like you suggest. I think the forums are pretty consistent on this one.
Oh for sure man. Couldnt agree with you more, most people here don't like it when Champs call out their next fights. But GSP got a slap on the wrist, I dont remember too many people saying he was running scared of Hendricks though. Also agree with you that top fighters have their fare share of nutthuggers and haters but again GSP haters tend to say he is boring and doesnt finish fights... Silva haters go as far as saying saying he hasnt beaten any relevant fighters... I think a good example is, jones beating Bader is a solid win, gsp beating Hardy is a solid win, Silva beating Maia = Maia is a can that doesnt belong in the UFC...
