    Actually some Bellator cards have been way better than many recent UFC cards.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    I've struggled with that as well.

    dana makes it a point to reveal a LOT of dirty laundry about anyone and everyone: this guy refused this fight, and that guy is whining about money, and blahblahblah...

    When you couple that with twitter [and zuffa actually not just encouraging fighters to tweet, but rewarding them for it] and the stupid stuff that so many of them post, it's hard to find someone who is admirable as a person; and that sense bleeds into their performances for me.

    I made it a policy not to read BJ Penn interviews from the period where he was fighting Georges the second time. It made it harder for me to watch him and not want him to lose. I'm glad I don't follow anyone or anything on twitter, at all.

    I don't think RH even knows what website twitter is on.

    And I mean that as a compliment.

    You would be correct, and I appreciate it.

    The Fox deal happened. And Dana White. As excited as I was about the Fox deal When it was announced the cards started suffering immediately. We can only hope they decide not to renew it when its done or even better try to cut their losses and back out. These cards cant be making great ratings, even for free.

    I honestly think it was just the times. It wasn't mainstream yet. There wasn't much coverage. You had to just have a love and passion. We all grew with the sport. Now as the new wave of fighters come in and our hero's fall off it leaves us with an emptiness that no amount of MMA can fill.

    That and while I am all for 1 big promotion in the states I think the loss of of Japanese based promotion has hurt the sport for those of us who visit these types of boards.

    I don't know why but the first person who sprung to mind was Don Frye.

    Bas Rutten fits that profile as well..
    "I leave this as a declaration of intent, so no one will get confused. 1: Si vis pacum para bellum. Latin. If you want peace, prepare for war. 2: Frank Castle is dead. He died with his family. 3: In certain extreme situations, the law is inadequate. In order to shame its inadequacies, it is necessary to act outside the law. To pursue natural justice. This isn't vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive, it's an emotional response. No, not vengeance. Punishment "
