Wouldn't even be news if the exact same thing happened in any fight not headlining with a title on the line or having been said about someone like Anderson.

Don't care.

Apparently neither does Matt Serra! I have mad respect for anyone that believes in and practices personal accountability.

Yes, it was 100% unsportmanlike and tacky, but it was in the heat of the moment. He slipped. Not a big deal. I am getting so tired of the over the top PC these days. Everyone has to walk on egg shells these days for fear of offending someone. Somewhere along the line everyone got the idea that no one has a right to offend them. Guess what, people have a right to say what they want (and should be aware of and accept the consequences that may go with it). It's your right to decide if you want to be offended. If you are offended, ok, but its not against the law and people shouldnt blow everything out of proportion. It really diminishes the importance of big issues and offenses by always making a big deal out of everything. People really need to toughen up and grow thicker skins.

And we wouldn't have even heard a statement from Serra if the media hadn't turned it into FuckThisGuy-Gate.

Gangster Serra would've also apologized in advance for when he says it next fight too.

I agree with you and everyone else who shares the same opinion, and I'm an Anderson fan.

It was in the heat of the moment. People get too angry too easily these days.

Heat of the moment or not, this is how he talks. It's not right, he admitted as much, he even apologized.

I'm in the it's-not-a-big-deal-until-the-media-makes-it-a-big-deal camp.

Everyone does it, yet those same people are quick to jump on others for doing the exact same thing.

The gruesome appearance of the injury makes it seem worse than it is. I'd rather break my leg than blow out a knee. No one would have said anything if the dangling foot didn't happen.

Such a very un-Matt Serra like thing to say...ok maybe not.

Good on him for this statement. Makes me feel better about the whole affair.

Sounds like he didn't realize the extent of the injury when he said it and felt bad after he did.

Still think its poor form to talk about how Weidman "practiced checking kicks" as if breaking his leg was somehow intentionally, but I can chalk that up to usually cockiness and self-denial. People in general would rather credit themselves for their achievements rather than luck, its just human psychology.

Good too see they're not callous, just a bit deluded.
