    A fighter needs a certain amount of distain for other fighters to even get into this sport. They need a killer instint to to go in there and give it their all.

    Point is, you need someone you love to hate to make it interesting and it sells tickets.
    I agree to some degree. But there comes a point where you have to perform to back up the shit you talk. Like with Melvin, its to the point where he's got to stop talking shit because he makes himself look stupid when he loses.

    i cant think that they would make this fight to sell tickets. I agree that after the crotch chop and wave bye bye he should have just left it at that. but its funny how a middle of the road fighter can look godly against melvin when they get to the ground.

    I don't have problem with shit talkers.

    But Melvin can't back it up. Ever. And Rich isn't some hot shot either - They're both fuckin' weark, in my opinion. If you're going to talk shit, fine. Do it. Hype it up, sell yourself, self promote (even though, I must admit, the shit talking era has gotten old. It's ALWAYS about selling tickets, and I just don't think people buy it anymore) - BUT BACK IT UP.

    Bye bye Melvin.

    Actually, people who hate MMA and want to restrict licensing and venue approval care quite a lot, and will use any little drama they can rake up to fight the spread of the sport into a more legitimate place in society.

    No. Hendo and Rampage are friends, and they sold tickets. If you don't have talent, you need drama...but if you are a professional, you should have the talent, or work towards getting it.

    Point is, bullshit melodrama like that gets MMA compared to human cockfighting in the mainstream media, and is used as support when some idiot wants to outlaw it in Australia, or compare it to the NFL for some stupid reason.

    I don't care about trash talking, I pretty much ignore it. But the point is, this got to a point where Melvin needed to be restrained after the decision. Granted, Melvin obviously has a head full of snakes, but Clementi could have laughed it off and said "learn some JJ Melvin" without all the repressed homoerotic posturing, and nonsense probably wouldn't have gotten to the lame "teen-kegger-soap-opera-dude-hold-me-back" level that it did. Or if it did, Melvin would have obviously been beyond the norm. As it stands, you have two stupid [and C-level, at best] fighters behaving unprofessionally in a huge PPV...somewhere neither of them deserve to be again.

    If I liked melodrama, I'd watch reality television or that desperate housewives shit my wife watches. But I want to be able to see a variety of fights from a variety of venues, and I hope for professional behavior from the professional fighters.

    Yeah, as soon as he got into the Octagon he walked to the center and gave Clementi the double bird....Clementi started to pull at his shorts near his crotch, as if to say, oh yeah, suck this.

    I thought the crotch chop was funny as well as the wave good bye....but continuing it during the interview was uncalled for.
