    Sure did.

    I'm going to pretend you parsed this out of context because, you projected your emotions about Obasi into your response. Read Izzo's response and see if you can figure it out in context.

    Actually, I'll make it simple for you:

    It is my hopes that you see and understand, that in spite of his history with you, Danny Horgan is a consummate gentleman, class act and man of integrity.

    In my opinion, he is the best thing to happen to Wing Chun in the last 20 years, forcing us as a community to open our eyes and allowing us to get our voices out there.
    If Dan a LYING, no integrity having, self promoting, arrogant douche is the best thing to happen to the Chun, in 20 years, then Shawn Obasi is a Wing Chun God among men. He did everything similar to Dan, before Dan, but he backed it up in the ring. He didn't use a sparring match to leap into video promotion and lying.

    So, if Dan is the best thing for chun in 20 years the same applies to Shawn Obasi. Nope, not trolling, it is actually ironic. That's why he was included in the list. He is a polarizing figure, look at your emotional response, just like Dan.

    Thanks for attempting to answer my question. You answered something else, but thanks.

    He crosstrains, and fights in sanctioned matches. That's a billion light years beyond your average WC practitioner. He felt the blunt club of reality, and did something about it. I agree with IIF. He is your God!

    The best thing to happen to Chun in 20 years was really Dave Beneteau.




    Did I say Chun? I meant Canada.

    Before my post is misinterpreted, like Dan, Shawn has altered his bio, promoted himself (Wing Chun Standard Bearer) bigger than life and basically lied about a few things. Obasi then arrogantly ran around telling everyone look at what I did, fighting lesser opponent, no offense to at the time injured Bobby, then crowed about it everywhere he could. Still, he got in the ring and actually FOUGHT. Dan challenged the internet, was invited to SPAR, lied to his PARTNER and then tried to sell it as a fight. You know, after DAN PURPOSELY AVOIDED AMATEUR, PRO, and EXPERT fighters.

    No, those three examples aren't exclusive and can be combined.

    Can the next season of TUF be Dan Horgan and Sean Obasi fighting each other every week?

    I think the phrase you are wanting to use is "stepped up". But Obasi broke Rule #3 so many times that it wouldn't really matter to me if he Johnny Caged the heads off of a dozen Fedors:



    Because even if he could do that, he still acts like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_3F6...tailpage#t=269

    And that's just.. no.. please... please make it stop... I just can't take it guys. You are all just so very very mean. Please? Please, no more. I just can't take it you guys. Please stop. Make it stop please.
