    I am also curious why you never hear such vitriol directed towards point fighting competitions, for example.

    I couldn't leave this alone. I mean when I look at the title of this thread, I would imagine it would be in the "flexibility and training" sub forum under Health & Fitness.

    I am going to agree with RJ and Matt and Endiku, and I think having been in both traditional and modern martial arts gives peoples opinions more weight. I at one time disdained MMA, but then started training in it and saw how effective it is, and how the people in it are just people, no worse or better than people in traditional martial arts. I have met many MMA trained guys, been to a few fights, and have nothing but nice things to say about 95% of the people I met. That number would hold true just about anywhere I've been. It is in my opinion that you are probably projecting onto these fighters the image you wish them to have.

    Diaz acknowledged this after the fight. He said GSP's superman punches were messing up his whole timing. The whole problem with Diaz is....there's no plan B.

    Hehe I just posted in the OTHER UFC 158 forum that the goal of martial arts, really, is to control your opponent, which is, without a doubt, what GSP shows over and over.
