    You get 20 rep back if you say that Vitor Belfort is GOAT.

    As a lone act, I see what Mayweather did as being VERY dirty. However, given the situation it was not only justifiable but probably warranted.

    The thing about "dirty" tactics is that they're easily justified by fans of the person committing the act. If you want proof, go back and read comments from Bernard Hopkins' fans who call him a "crafty veteran" rather than a dirty SOB with his stepping on feet, punching hips, knee turns/bumps, pushing on the head, etc.

    That's fine, it's mutually understood in some fights. the don't like each other, they don't respect each other, and they don't touch gloves.

    But what he's talking about is deceiving your opponent; holding out your hand for him to touch, and then throwing a high kick or something when he's unprepared. That's legal, but in my opinion, it's dirty. You don't have to agree.

    I felt like the KO of Ortiz was dirty. I know people who didn't. That's OK, it's a matter of opinion.

    I think jones is dirty. I know people who don't. I know people who think he's p4p the bestest. I don't think he's top 3.

    It's all a matter of opinion. I don't know that the eye pokes are intentional, but that's not all that I'm basing my opinion from.

    I probably should have stated above that I still found it to be dirty but easily justified. It was just a shame it ended up resulting in a KO rather than just sending a message to Ortiz.

    I wonder if all his sparring partners are pirates?

    Sometimes it looks like he's digging into a cut a little bit as well.

    I think he could have resolved any controversy with a rematch. That's the biggest thing I dislike about Floyd, the "if I've beaten them, I'm done" mentality. I think that's partly responsible for the reluctance of fighters to seek out rematches in combat sports today.

    Can you name one other champion or even fighter with as even near many 'accidental' eye pokes as Jones who has not been labelled as dirty?
