    But back on topic, case in point: Uriah Faber. He's such a good fighter, but he's such a fucking asshole.
    He is?

    Have you ever heard his pre-fight interviews? He doesn't shut up about how awesome he is. Never "I'm gonna use his weaknesses and go for a knockout." It's always "he's gonna get his ass beat because I rule."

    To be fair, he does pretty much totally rule.

    It's not arrogance when It's true. I also think it's just that Uriah isn't very good at speaking technically. Every time i've seen he's talked about how tough he thinks his opponent is.

    This makes me feel a little better, Many of you have posted friendly responses even if you do not agree with me, Being a bad ass really does not mean a great deal when you get older. Being a bad ass is taking care of your children, raising a good family, paying bills and so on. Being a bad ass is getting the tough jobs done.

    Yeah yeah, when you were young the sky was clearer, the sun shined brighter, young kids respected adults and helped grannies over the street that were paved with gold. And it rained diamonds. Except on tuesdays, that was a doughnut day. We get it -- you are getting old.

    Seriously, what a lame fucking generalization. I can make one too: all older people are nostalgic, rude, whining bastards. I met one like that just the other day on the sub, so it must be so.

    I watched a couple of interviews with Faber on youtube. He seems a little cocky but he's not an asshole. Compared to some of the dipshits on the Ultimate Fighters he's tame. The pre-fight interview is all hype anyhow.

    Meet me at a throwdown, I'm only 34, I'm not that old. We can discuss there face to face, perhaps, I can help you grow up a little.

    Sure, if I ever come to states. I'm the first to admit you'll propably kick my ass, but I'd go for it.

    Sorry if the tone was that rude, I'm just really fed up with that broad generalizations.
