    I can't think of a more thorough and satisfying beating. Hamed looked like a freaking spastic 4th grader splashing in a pool in that fight. He would have been dropped at least three times if for not holding the ropes.



    It's hard for me to take any talk of respect or humility seriously from a guy who routinely held chokes too long and stepped on Spijkers neck when he was seemingly unconscious.

    Yea Barrea got that ass that night. That is the only part about showboating is the ability to pull it off and actually win the fight in spectacular fashion. When you showboat and lose you look like quite the fool. All the great fighters that showboat have tasted a similiar defeat.

    This is the fight SJ is referring to.

    Lol.....it was absolutely ridiculous.

    I didn't like hamed. Not because of the showboating, but because I didn't see him beating anyone notable other than an overrated Kevin Kelley. Tszyu and de la Hoya were already on their way up so it wasn't all his fault.

    I don't.

    However, silva tends to preach respect an awful lot:

    "The thing I always ask is respect," Silva said. "I respect everyone, I have a history in the sport and I think people need to respect me. To me, you have to maintain respect [in your conduct]. When you do not, things that are not good will happen to you."
    I understand humility and respect are not equal but they are not separate either.

    Showing humility is respecting your opponents and thanking them for their contributions to your legacy IMO and that is at the core of eastern martial arts.

    Cockiness doesn't always have to be observed verbally. It can also be witnessed through your actions.

    - Playing into another fighters strengths to prove a point
    - Striking toe to toe with someone damn near twice your size/reach
    - Underestimating your opposition because you don't think they can hurt or submit you

    None of the guys on your list are exactly wiping their asses with witchhazel..

    I completely agree. With both statements, I only use it as example because its the only thing I do that I take pride in. So I can understand how the guys that sit atop a field understand where they sit, and where others sit...
