It's simple. This thread is made so we can all admit when we were wrong.

Whether it be a fighter we felt strongly about winning a fight that in hindsight never stood a chance or it be that topic we argued passionately in the forums only to find out that we didn't know the whole truth at the time.

If you are like me & feel the need every now & again to acknowledge when you were wrong, this is the thread for it.

FYI: This is only for calling yourself out. No need to call out others for being wrong. Deep down inside, they know it.

I picked Shane Roller over Melvin Guillard.

I said Shogun was going to be Jon Jones' biggest challenge to date.

I said not only would Ryan Bader make Tito regret taking their fight, but he would make Tito retire immediately after the fight.

Oh man, I don't know if there's enough room on the internets for all the times I was wrong.

My admissions:

It was funny to pee off that bridge onto that boat, and it was funny to tell the cop it was funny.
That girl I went home with will still look good in the morning.(this covers a couple of times, sadly)
I'm gaining muscle mass with age.
Girls' farts don't smell.

On to MMA:

CC will bounce back and look like the CC from the OWGP.
Randy is retired for sure this time.
Gegard Mousasi is a top 5 LHW.
Jorge Gurgel is going to take this fight to the mat and just try to play to his strengths this time...(said that about 4 too many times before I learned my lesson)

Here's some fun ones.

There's no way Oregon loses to LSU.

"Come on, it's Stanford, they'll never beat us in the Coliseum" (Game where USC were 41 point favorites over Stanford and lost 24-23)

Machida is not losing for a long time.

This one was a long time ago, but I believe I posted a comment saying Forrest had knockout power. Oops

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Wow this is confesing to everything I didn't want too, I said Daley would rip apart Diaz, which to be fair he did, just Diaz did it better.

And No!! I'm not taking back that Nick Ring will beat Anderson Silva!

I'm guilty of these as well. I was pretty positive Shogun was going to beat Jones and I lost money on it as well.

I was pretty vocal about there being no way Coleman beats Bonnar and no way Nog gets finished by Mir

i picked against hunt last minute bc i went against my instincts on rothwell being overrated

to be fair i swapped from gomi to diaz last minute too, so i guess i was 50/50 on last minute swaps
