Agreed. I made this mistake the last time the UFC was overseas for the Alves/Hughes fight @ UFC 85. I hopped online to check something and Yahoo Sports already had the headline of Alves beating Hughes. Pissed me off to no end.
I came pretty close to making a wager against some Chad at the bar that night, though. He was trying to get me to put $50 on Alves and he would take Hughes because "Hughes is the f'ing man!"
It was like I was Marty McFly and had the Almanac from the future.
BUT...I couldn't do it. The dude was a major tool and a major douche but I just couldn't force myself to do it. Looking back, I know I should've.
He was "that guy" who supposedly knows everything about MMA. You know, things like:
- Matt Hughes being one of the top BJJ guys in MMA (yes, he said that to me)
- Matt Hughes would destroy GSP if they fought a 4th time (he said that, too)
- GSP is overrated
- And lastly...every time someone would go for a guillotine or even be remotely close to lock one in, he'd yell, "It's over! REAR NAKED! REAR NAKED!"
