    Like I said, when done correctly.

    Anyway, all you self-righteous fairies better check your tone. Cause you don't who you dealing with. I was raised by wolves in the harsh tundra storms of Siberia. Where I come from, respect is earned by feats of strength, something you slimy nerds can not possibly understand.
    Where I come from, achievements are a lifetime of hardship, not just something that pops up on your Xbox Live when Mario collects a thousand coins.

    I interviewed Jean-Yves Theriault in the late 80's, and I asked him about his fight with Bob "Thunder" Thurman. Thurman had been trash-talking for months leading up to the fight, and Theriault knocked him out in Round 2.

    His comment to me was that he was a little embarrassed about knocking him out so soon, since the fans were cheated of a good fight. There's a man with class.

    class against trash it seems class wont that fight fairly. It seems trash talking has become more of a part of the "show" now. but then people have always had a facination with "badboys/girls". The fighter that keeps a calm hand and put the trash in the trash bin dont get the same kind of follwoing either so it measn the fights can lure a more diverse crowd.

    Yeah we don't. We represent a club that dosen't. The idea is that we hold to a standard of behaviour.

    There should be formal training for trash talking. Ric Flair should be the professor.

    Can never argue against that.

    Otherwise, I'm kind of on both sides of the fence on trash talking and have absolutely no logical consistency in my opinions of it whatsoever.

    If I happen to like the pro fighter, and they are actually funny in particular circumstances, then I like the trash talking. Chael is funny and I felt he should be rewarded for bad behaviour after his performance in taking down Anderson Silva and pounding him out for over 20 minutes (UFC 117) after that stupid showboating debacle of Anderson vs. Maia at UFC 112. Of course, if it can't get backed up then it looks kind of silly after.

    Amateurs and most of the pro guys (especially on undercards) I much prefer to see good sportsmanship.

    When the pro fighters get a name, then yes it can work to promote the fight. I had to laugh when Dan Hardy held a contest asking his fans to photo-shop his opponent's face onto gay porn images. Not sure how much it helped promotion (or why he wanted these images in the first place), but I thought it was funny.

    I find a lot of trash-talk can be irritating. Often on the UFC one-hour programs promoting the PPV they show this interview footage of people trying to pretend like they really dislike their opponents. Speaking as a keyboard warrior/fan (I'm not pretending to understand their pre-fight mindset) that just gets monotonous. Sometimes the lack of a pre-fight glove touch or "incidents" at the weigh-in staredown photo-ops seem orchestrated. I like the real MMA fights - stopped enjoying the pro-wrestling soap opera storylines when I was 12. I enjoyed more the interviews on Pride videos where you actually saw more of the people's personalities (e.g. Josh Barnett) and much less stuff that was contrived trash-talking.

    TL/DR version - yah, sometimes it's funny, but there are ways to hype a fight that is respectful to your opponent.
