    Except when fighting people that use strategy. Then he gets upset, flashes gang signs, and cries like a baby.

    The strategy of running away pisses me off too (as a fan). Diaz comes to fight, not run around, fleeing the scene before every exchange.

    MMA needs more guys who are this game to throw down. If I wanted dancing, I'd watch dancing.

    Really? So your saying that foot work isn't proper fighting strategy? A fighter that has no patience shouldn't be fighting.

    Footwork is vital. That doesn't have to mean a strategy of retreat, without payoff - beyond points. Fighting to a decision, beyond a mid fight injury prompted change-of-plan pisses me off.

    In his pride days, Crocop would back up, and circle, and then deliver hideous straight lefts, and round kicks from both sides. he was the smaller man enough, to make in sensible, and had enough power to make that work. Crocop left us fans with a long HL reel of KO's.

    Most fighters, however (from what I've seen) can't turn backing off, and retreating into exciting fights/wins. As a fan, I resent not bringing it to the other guy as part of a game plan. If they're fighting in the right weightclass, and had a proper camp, that shouldn't be a problem.

    My favorite combat sports people all bring it, all the time. It's only a preference. I want exciting fights, and admire fighters who'll come forward. There are ways to come forward even against a talented counter-striker.

    Imagine an American Football team that runs the ball every single play of a game. Even if they win, would it not piss you off a little, knowing what all is involved in the totality of the sport's skillset?

    I see what your saying, and I agree in part. But if a guy isn't going to stand in front of you and strike it out then losing patience, and flashing gang signs isn't going to win you a fight.

    That's true, but it sums up the feelings of many a passionate fan, and makes the other guy look like a douche.

    I don't blame Diaz for EVERYONE seeming to be afraid to take him down.

    There's striking range, clinch range, and the ground. The creation of the fourth range...running range strikes me as a step away from exciting sports competition. That's all. People are gonna always try to win, but trying to not lose sucks goat balls.

    EDIT: I want bankers and government to try to not lose/fail...for fighting sports, I want attempted winning. It isn't warfare, it's sports, and entertainment.
