    No, I'm really serious. I prefer when both fighters suck.

    I took "well-rounded" in equal meaning in regards to sucking at everything, and when they are good at everything. lolz

    It would indeed be incredibly boring if every mma fighter were incredibly well rounded.
    I was talking about Fedor's personality (or lack thereof) smartass, not his fighting style.

    You would have gotten it if you had read what preceded that statement.

    I like the fighters who act like professionals--Randy, GSP, Machida.

    People like Brock, and to a much greater extent, Matt Hughes are awful and shouldn't be allowed to represent the sport. In all seriousness it makes me think less of the gyms they train at. The fact that Militech lets Hughes, a thoroughly immoral man (Summary of Matt Hughes' autobiography - No BS Martial Arts), train with him is disgusting. He should be a pariah from gyms and society. We need standards of conduct or society suffers. I see Lesnar's actions (as well as Renzo's throat stomp) as a lesser form of the same thing. They should be heftily fined for this kind of jackassery.

    Dana and Brock Lesnar

    Spot on. I thought the same thing after his fight. But, I seriously question that Irish knuckleheads ability to get Lesnar to be more tackful.

    I did get it and your comment was stupid. Think about it, you're saying that you wouldn't watch based on someone's ring persona regardless of how good a fighter they are.

    I love the whole Ms. Manners turn this thread has taken.

    Bullshido: it's about politeness, not the ability to stomp your opponent lifeless.

    In civilised society nothing is more important than being a decent human-being. I can't stand people who want to compete in combat sports because it enables them to get satisfaction from injuring another person without any morale or legal implications. As far as i'm concerned MMA is a sport and nothing more, so if someone can't compete in it without turning into a raging neanderthal then I won't respect them as a member of society.

    Your preference is fine, but I disagree with the bolded. A person's ability to perform at his or her sport is all that should determine being allowed to represent the sport. As long as they fight within the rules, I couldn't care less about their sportsmanship.
