    Oh it is psycology. I am kind of dumb then because I just went ot some weigh ins and came to the conclusion that none of the fighters really give a ****.



    The growley face lasts two seconds and is a show for the camera. Normally. The real oponant on that day is the scales.

    I stopped smiling when sparring, I stay stoney faced and emotionless. I don't want my opponent knowing he got a good shot on me. I used to think it was good sportsmanship to acknowledge a well executed technique, but I thought about it and decided I didn't want the person I'm fighting to have any mental edge, especially the knowledge that they have done something that hurt me.

    Win the scramble. Win the exchange. Finish the round strong. Allways fight to win. is a better way to train dominance than whether or not you are cheery during sparring.

    We contend that these smiles reflect unintentional nonverbal responses...

    I'd agree with this in a fight, but not so much in sparring.





    During sparring, I've noticed that those who occasionnally smile are the ones that are levels better than me.

    Grinning motherfuckers.

    I used to grin when I hurt or scare somebody during competitions. It was an automatic reaction, and it looked pretty damn evil.

    By the way. In regards to most of us who are not proffesional fighters who need the money to save an orphanage.

    If it is not fun why do it?

    In primates, baring teeth is used as a signal of submission or subordination a means of avoiding potentially harmful and aggressive physical confrontations with others.
    Did anyone else think this was kind of strange? Cause baring teeth isn't always a submissive display; it can be the opposite. It can be "hey bitch, see these pointy motherfuckers in my mouth? Well they're about to puncture the **** outta your hide if you don't stand down."

    How do we know that aggression reflects mental state and not emotional state?
