has anybody viewed the mmanews facebook page lately? there seems to be a lot of what i call "tapout" fans posting shit on there. whats up with that? i feel like most of the people here are pretty knowledgeable.

here are a few that made me laugh

"i see batista as the next cheik kongo"

(in regards to batista)"Can't wait to see what he can do. With his size & athletic capabilities. He could be a lesnar or carson. All raw power. Strikeforce in my eyes only has one good heavyweight & that's overeem. Fedor only fights shit heavy weights. He's already ducked overeem. Batista might be a worthy opponent for overeem. FUCK GAYDOR!"

"amazing liddell and cro cop won! period!"

"UFC 116 was a big let down i was hopeing for more"

"Fedor tapped!!! Haha exposed or the bitch he is!!! Proof that he would get killed in the UFC!"

Sounds even worse than Sherdog, and that is saying a lot.
Who in the fuck is Carson BTW?

Now I understand more why dana white talk all the BS, because there are morons like them that believe him.

Wot u guyz on aboot? Carson iz da best super-middleweight in da UFCE. Cant w8 to c him beat Lesnie with a submission kick.

What a bunch of tools, I understand what you mean IceCold48, calling them 'tapout fans'. There are so many people (especially here in the UK) that have watched the 10second clip on youtube of Lesnar knocking Heath Herring tumbling backwards and think he's all of a sudden the best MMA fighter of all time. Then they pop down to their local Mall and kit themselves out in Tapout tee's and hats and think their friends will respect them more for it. Oh dear.

Its really embarrasing how in such a great sport there are too many stupid fans.

I think that for every smart fan there are like 25 idiots.

Exactly, i think most fans go through that transitional period as well where they know a little bit, and they love the sport, but they still dont understand a lot of the technicalities that make the sport great.

Like they may like particular fighters because they have great stand-up, and can make for exciting fights, and they can appreciate that their stand-up skills are great. Because of this, they then assume that boxing/stand-up fighters are superior to ground specialists, just because ground-spec's don't always end fights in the same amazing fashion. Then, when they get a bit more knowledge about how the ground-game works, they start to truly appreciate the sport, and become real, educated fans.

Yes but the problem appears when morons that in reality dont know a shit think that they know everything, they think that they have nothing to learn.
They think that ground game is for pussies, BJJ is boring and all they want to see is a brutal bloody brawl.

They began watching MMA few months ago and they dont know anything but act as they are knowledgeable fans.

There are new fans that are interested in the sport and eventually become educated and apreciate the good things of MMA, they understand that it is a sport, but unfortunately there are a lot of fucking fat rednecks that just want to see violence inside a cage. They think that UFC is the only organization that matters (or even worse, they think that the name of the fucking sport is actually UFC!!!!), they believe all the bullshit that Dana white spreads. They are stupid as hell, they watch some Batista and only because he is big and ripped they think that he is a great fighter.

When we combine all that ignorance is when we begin to hear things like "Batista would destroy Fedor" or there are also "Masters of fighting" that only becxause they took 2 or 3 lessons of some martial art in their whole life they consider themselves as experts and without any shame they say "LOL, this guy (a fighter) is an idiot, what is he doing? He should do this and then this, what a fucking loser"

So true. When they call the sport 'UFC' it infuriates me! I've got plenty of friends that only got into the sport when they heard Lesnar was doing it, and some of the stuff they come out with is unbelievable.

I think the biggest mistake new fans make is 'bigger is better', they seem to assume that if a fighter has a size advantage over their opponent, they are instantly a better fighter, and sure to win the fight. Sure it helps, but there are so many other factors that come into play in MMA that can give fighters an advantage/disadvantage. You've only got to show an MMA newbie Royce Gracie vs Dan Severn or Fedor vs Hong Man-Choi to make them understand that MMA is a tactical sport and the fighters are well trained professionals, at the top of their sport.

As for BJJ, I remember when i first watched MMA, I was like anyone else, I didn't understand what was going on, I didnt know what 'guard' was or what it meant, and the ground game was boring. I was so wrong. When BJJ is well executed, it's a beautiful thing.

For me it was the same, at the beginning I didnt like to watch fight in the ground but then you begin to pay attention to what fighters do, what they try etc. and you realize how beautiful BJJ can really be, also when you have knowledgeable commentators that know what they are talking about and explain what is a guard, what the fighter is trying now and why etc. it becomes really interesting. of course when you have some Mike Goldberg commentating it wont help too much.

Its Ok if a fan only watches UFC and is not a fan of SF or Dream and dont even know what was PRIDE FC, if he only wants to watch UFC its Ok, but what bothers me is when they begin to talk shit about other organizatiosn when in reality they have never seem them.

They hear about this guy, fedor something, and they see that he has a great record, but then they hear how Dana white says that he is overrated and sucks, and stupid fans believe him. They dont even bother to watch fights like fedor vs Mirko, fedor vs Nogueira, fedor vs herring etc. they have only probably watched fedor vs Fujita and Fedor vs Werdum and think that what we saw in those fights is the real level of fedor.

And to talk to them about Gracies, Sakuraba, Vovchanchyne....damn its a waste of time. All they know is brock lesnar, GSP, Bj penn, Kimbo.

Yes, that's it. That's why everyone is so divided on Fedor, because on one-hand you have the fans who do watch Dream/SF/old Pride videos and they understand what a talented fighter is. Then you have the strictly-UFC-only fans who just assume that because Fedor doesn't fight in the UFC, he can't possibly be any good.
I really do hope (even though it looks unlikely) that Fedor does eventually go to the UFC, even it's a one-off. Then all the bitching would stop (i hope).

Ground game is for pussies who cant fight, they are fucking homos that just like to stay in the missionary position the entire fight. Fuck them!!!!
A real fighter is fucking Kimbo Slice, he just stands and bangs, he doesnt do that gay ground game stuff ...Maaaan he is awesome, in 2-3 years he will be the best fighter in the world.


Damn, I feel like a real idiot (UFC noob)

The best way to win an MMA fight is to punch the other guy until he's unconscious. I've heard it works. Lesnar told me so, and he's the best ever, so it must be true.
