    Right or wrong, I was just pointing out the inacurate statement made that the rest of the world views Americans and smart individuals. Here I'll show you what I mean;


    YouTube - Dylan Moran - Americans

    YouTube - Bill Bailey - Paranoid Nation

    YouTube - Charlie Brooker on US TV

    YouTube - Stewart Lee - America - Stand-Up Comedian

    Maybe in the UK dude, did you know I wasn't American? I can pretty much speak for the entire far east.

    Sorry I assumed from your comment that you must be American. (edit:Though your location is listed as Florida?)

    In that case I'll amend it for you.

    How is my comment stupid? I, and obviously many others (since Fedor has never been a very popular, PPV selling fighter, even in Japan, that's a well known fact), aren't just interested by the fighting aspect of this.

    Why do you think it's called "entertainment"? Why do you think guys like Tito Ortiz and Ken Shamrock, despite not being the best or most entertaining fighters (especially the latter), can sell so much PPVs? Because they have CHARISMA, PERSONALITY. That sells, and that makes what happens BEFORE AND AFTER the fight MUCH more entertaining.

    And you obviously can't read for ****, because I haven't stated ANYWHERE I wouldn't be watching this if everyone was like Fedor, I said I wouldn't be a HARDCORE MMA FAN. And what makes a hardcore fan different from a normal fan? That's right, they're not just interested by the fights, they also are interested by the news, what happens in the MMA-verse, etc... And I wouldn't be that if everyone was boring like Fedor.

    Would I still watch the fights? Of course I would, but with much less enthusiasm.

    Tsk tsk. I see that once again the Internet MMA Community is going after that mean old wrassler who's ruining their sport. Now, granted, Lesnar has firmly established himself at the opposite end of whatever scale guys like Randy Couture and Jon Fitch are at the top of, but still:

    Nick Diaz has flipped off the crowd on multiple occasions. Dana White drops four letter words like a Tarantino character. Michael Bisping, Houston Alexander, and Rich Clementi, to name a few, have engaged in mocking post fight behavior. Heck, on the same PPV Dan Henderson took the oppurtunity to land a Jerry Lawler style Flying Fist Drop on his out cold opponent. But Brock get's douche of the month and a condescending lecture about class?

    Puh-leeze. If it had been any other fighter, there might have been a few posts to the effect of "So and so's a big retard" but BS wouldn't have found it necessary for a special column just to tie them to the e-whipping post.

    BlahBlahBlah.
    Read your own posts with your biases turned off and get back to me.
    I always considered the hardcore fans those that followed the sport outside of just its mainstream exposure, meaning other promotions and big prospects.

    regarding the trivial side discussion:
    I live in America for school right now (actually I'm back here for the summer), but I've lived all over asia growing up. Which is basically more accurate of the "rest of the world" compared to Europe. However I do concede that sentence is a bit overreaching. Especially accounting for the fact that it was within my knowledge that brits don't think americans are all that bright. lol.
