    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    The fist thing never really bothers me. Then again, I always feel awkward posing for a photo anyways. Would the fighter choking the fan make more sense? Maybe.

    When I see MMA clothing, my gut reaction is "He's a douchebag trying to look tough."
    Intellectually, it's just like any other sport. The prime example already given is we don't expect someone that wears a basketball jersey to be good at basketball. Although, it's probably reasonable to assume they have played basketball sometime in their lives.

    Of the guys I've trained with for more than a few months, one wears tapout. I'm pretty sure he's a teen. Respectful guy.

    I've thought of doing this if I ever find myself in a picture with a fighter. I train BJJ so it seems appropriate/funny.

    Some fighter sinking in a RNC on me standing, my face going red and starting to tap while giving the thumbs up... classic.

    According to Frank Mir and Forrest Griffin, Chuck Liddell put a RNC on a guy for a picture, and he promptly turned around and sued chuck for whiplash and got 50k. Some people are fucking dicks

    This is exactly why Natalie Portman and Hyori Lee have a restraining order against me.

    the wife got me a tap out shirt 4 years ago, i use it to do yard work in. If i have a few friends over for a fight on t.v. i may put it on. I see alot of dudes with the skull affliction shirts, and i asked a guy if he trained in anything who was wearing one, he just said " no but i like the look". Watch one episode of Tool Academy and you'll see why i dont wear those shirts.

    i saw this guy one time, and he was totally, like, wearing a manchester united (insert appropriate team here) jersey, and i, like, talked to him, and he, like, NEVER played with united...what a complete douchebag.

    ok, being from Ireland, where mma is just starting to take off, the above seems to sum up this whole thread. I love mma, but it seems to be the only sport (in the US???) where fans take **** for wearing associated gear and not training.

    People are always complaining that mma is not accepted as a sport (just last week we had a radio show here in Ireland discussing mma in the time-honoured "human cock-fighting" terms) but as soon as the mainstream start to pick up on some of the mma (albeit mostly UFC) "culture", for want of a better term, then its a case of "you dont have the r33l fandom, i am th3 d3adly fan"

    if it wern't for casual fans of the sport who don't train, I wouldn't be able to watch UFC on ESPN here.

    Oh and I have pictures of me making the fist with Rey Diogo, Rodrigo Meideros (who gave me my blue belt) and Nilson "Pokemon" Lopes, and I dont care:thebirdma
