You should of named this thread "GSP Haters"

I have been watching this sport for over 10 years now and I do not in anyway let how much I like or dislike a fighter weigh on my opinion of his skills.

GSP haters are like Maple Leaf fans to me. No matter how many times you correct there shenanigans they just bring the same shit back up at a later date.

"ZOMG!!! LEAFS ARE UNDEFEATED!!!! 2-0!!!! PLAYOFFS!!!"
"13 CUPS!!!!"

Where is the Dean these days? And does anyone know why he pinches his nipple before each fight?

The "nipple tweaking" was a Greg Jackson thing. It was actually GSP who started that as Bruce Buffer was introducing him for his rematch with BJ Penn.

Pretty much all of Jackson's fighters did it after GSP, so it became a trend or something. I remember Nate Marquardt, Rashad Evans and others doing it as well, and they were actually winning all of their fights at that time. I haven't seen the ol' nipple tweak in a while now.

No idea what Jardine is doing now. Weakest chin I've ever seen, so we'll probably never see him in the UFC again.

he is semi retired and doing TV and movie cameos for the time being. Taking a bit of time off to heal and maybe get that drive back

The nipple pinching seems to be a Jackson's MMA thing.

Bubbles, saying The Dean of Mean "starched" a prime Liddell is wildly inaccurate. That fight went to a split decision!!

As for the topic at hand, I'm a harsh fan. I have my favorite fighters who I root for, but I'd like to think I can still watch every fight and judge it by the same criteria. I wouldn't go around saying Diaz beat Condit or Gustafsson beat Jones if I didn't truly and honestly think that. (and I will argue those two fights into the ground)

Refrain from attempting to argue, if you can.

Blind and Harsh, some fighters, I love their attitude, and will root for them no matter how badly their career is going (Liddell, Jardine, Barry, Vera, Daley, Lauzon)

Only times I ever dislike fighters is if they are known decisioners/stallers, GSP, Carmont,Shields, Fitch or even Sonnen anyone who tries to win via the rules rather than fists or subs.

The only fighter I blindly root for his Dan Henderson. But I have picked against him his last 3 or 4 fights on the playground. This is bidness

I'll never understand when picking fights on here, some members say "I have to pick so and so because I root for them" even when the odds are stacked heavily against them or on the flip side "I hate this fighter so no way can I pick them" when said fighter is an overwhelming favorite.
