    UFC is legit the new world cup. Remember when Brazilians were basically the champions in every division? Then the Mexicans started appearing out of nowhere and winning shit? Then the Americans brought it back home for a few years & now the Africans & Europeans are BLITZING every division. I LOVE IT

He literally drops it when he does Anything. Not just a particular strike, but seriously everything he does causes him to drop his right hand to his stomach. Dude is catching left hands on the mouth every single time. Pick them hands up son.

    Judging by that video, fighters still like fighting. I just don't appreciate how desperate some people are to say an opinion. Whether or not, an opinion is good depends on it's quality. Rather than embarrasing myself here, I'm just being honest. Of course, I'm not trying to treat some people as important. The fact that I'm serious here is more important than how certain people have spoken. Some people look distracting, but at least that's their problem. I personally respect the UFC, even though to respect myself. I can't just say that I'm wrong here. At least, I don't need to look bad here. Whether I have to bad about what I say is my choice. I really don't know why some people were quickly interested in a video. Anyway, I was quickly interested in being serious. I know that fighting is serious, unlike some people's lives. It's one thing to respect an aspect of fighting, but it's another to just watch fighting. I was be talking because I wanted to have spoken. It might be a coincidence that some people were wrong or foolish, except fighters. I strongly think it's a coincidence that I've decided to talk or forget about something. It's intentional when some people embarras themselves here. I'm hardly surprised about what I say. It must've been a coincidence that things disappoint fighters. At the end of the day, I won't just complain endlessly. If anything, it's very clear that I should deserve respect. It's definitely bad when fighters damage themselves with punches, kicks or elbows. I'll appreciate what I say, without getting concerned by some random people. I can't believe how ignorance is a factor for some, let alone me. I do hope I'm clear here. I already did want to argue, regardless of who suddenly gets surprised by me. Like I said, it's my responsibility for making sure some people are irrelevant. I can have more reasons to be happy, than see some irrelevant people. Anyway, I've gladly been truthful..

  • Mr Right Russian Guy
    Mr Right Russian GuyMåned siden

    @Bryce Stewart Also, I was just saying some irrelevant things. I don't care what you get interested in. Your interest for what you say should only make you embarrased. I don't know what you tend to appreciate, but at least fighters are stronger. Also, a video game doesn't make you personally strong. If you want to look for attention or say true things, realise the consequences. You definitely look bad, unless you belong in an asylum. Just because fighters fight, doesn't mean you can prove everything about it. I highly doubt you are a fighter yourself. I'll ignore you so you'll see this anyway. Of course, fighters know how to fight in the UFC. I highly suggest you realize your innocence, otherwise, God will punish you. Fighters in the UFC, than anything you've ever said here. Hardly ever do I get concerned by a random opinion. At least, you your parents should probably be ashamed of you. Your opinions are as useless as an empty water. How fighters fight makes them important, judging by their performaces. As far as I'm concerned, you were just desperate for attention. If I were you, I'd reconsider who you are trying to be. If I were you, I'd realize how some fighters hardly fight. I don't want to respect you, even as you have a lot to prove. You are hardly that type of person to deserve pity, let alone deserve respect. Whether fighters deserve respect or not, depends on their performaces. You definitely need to get lost, before you'll make another mistake in life. Anyway, lets deflect a little away. Just because you look a little distracting, doesn't mean you deserve importance for an opinion. I will be serious as long as I'm talking here. You are just another hateful person, judging by how you behave here. You were probably desperate to make a comment, which should've made you weaker. If you've want an argument, I've given you an arguement. At the end of the day, you still have a reason to be pathetic. Whether fighters fight for a few reasons has nothing to do with us. Stop trying to get attention and just shut up for once. I will disrespect you and you should know this anyway. Keep your interests to yourself. Don't act as if everything from you is good. You're pathetic, just like your life. Do me a favour and make yourself disappear. Whether you made yourself embarrasing was not my problem. As far as I'm concerned, you just said a random thing. As far as I'm concerned, you still deserve to be disrespected.
