MMA Campfire Tales

Is it possible to be a poor sport in a blood sport? In my latest MMA Campfire Tales, we look at three of the worst cases of poor sportsmanship of early MMA and decide who was right, who was wrong, and who even remembers this crap.

I remember the Abbot and Matua fight. I just rewatched it right now and I never noticed Abbot doing the seizure until now. I remember Abbot always making my blood boil back then.

We got that live when I was a kid and we thought Matua was dying. Tank changed the face of karate forever, so I'm happy for that, but he's a cruel bastard.

I just re watched it too and Tank was one hell of an asshole. Can anyone remember the guy he fought and KO'd with one peck and right after in the interview after said something like "I bet he wished he had that peck right about now". Complete asshole but I couldn't look away when he fought.

That was Tra Telligman, but he didn't fight him. He was a commentator for the UFC Vitor Belfort won and said that about Telligman after Belfort KO'd him.

It's probably a good thing he didn't too, as Telligman was a god damn beast. Beat Igor Vovchanchyn in his prime in Pride.

Seanbaby has the funniest write up on Abbot/Matua ever. Hell, the whole thing was funny but that part in particular was the best. LINK
