The Ceaser Gracie team (SF Brawl) = Piss poor sportsmanship
Cabage after the Tank fight = Piss poor sportsmanship
None of the above are acceptable^^^^^
Chael running his mouth = selling PPV
Mir running his mouth = selling PPV
These never threw a cheap shot, while thier mouthes get on my last nerve and can be a bit disrespectful, it has not hurt the sport IMO
Think you've pretty much summed it up. As much as i hate Mir there is a large difference between talking the smack he&Chael does and 5 or 6 guys hopping one guy and kicking the crap outa him in the cage. I'd also add Rampage's ridiculously late shot when he ko'd Wanderlei in their UFC bout = Piss poor sportmanship. Never seen the Cabbage Tank fight, what happened?
