It should be a meritocracy and not a popularity competition.

The UFC is a company first and foremost and will reward the fighters the fans connect with....sometimes because of and sometimes despite their skillset.
Yep. You're right.

As a matter of fact no one has said 'if I was a pro MMA this or that' - anyone who says so is a retard. THAT should not even be argument.
Incidentaly, the closest thing (and only close thing) to such a comparison in THIS thread was your previous post where you were asking to US, the posters in this thread, whether we would fight Kaleb.
THAT is not an argument since we never claimed such thing, and neither is the post I'm currently replying to (since it is equally unaplicable... not to say stupid.)

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
1) yeah, actually, a few people said things like that, including on the last page when someone said that they could have easly backpedaled like Starnes, and returned shots on Quarry more than he did too. (lol)
