maynard and fitch dry hump their opponent for 15mins and want to be called great fighters. fuck that. you not a great fighter if you cant finish fights.
How many fights have Frankie and Sonnen finshed again?
I know you hate wrestlers. I know you think it's very very clever to call it bump and grind. I also know that they're all winning fights. If their opponent can't counter what they do, they're going to win, simple as that.
But for someone to discredit it--particularly when they're not even stepping in the cage against them--it amounts to whiners posting bullshit behind the anonymity of the internet.
I'd rather watch someone who does what they do with skill than someone who simply "stands in the pocket and bangs." I'd rather watch Frankie or Fitch not finish a fight than watch Leben or Cabbage all day long.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
