    LA is filled with retards who are liars and looking to sell their soul for a little bit of fame and glamour. Bunch of douchebags is right. Now I am not saying everyone who lives there is one, but I know of a couple and heard bullshit stories.

    After living in LA for 5 years, I can confirm the place is a douchebag magnet. But ehhh, I hear similar things about Jersey. . .

    Sure. I share your opinion there; however, one of the ways to make grappling more spectacular would maybe be to enhance the rules a bit. Pride in its day also had amazing grappling scenes. In the UFC, whenever a fight goes to the ground, things tend to get boring.

    Also, the cards in the UFC, while always good, are mostly too even to be spectacular. Overeem against the dude that has lost like ten of his fights in under 60 secs, that's spectacular, though maybe not very artful.
    On the contrary, UFC Fight Night 19 showed some great martial arts, but I almost drooled because it was so boring.

    Yeah, with Rogan being the Queen of L.A. douchebags, he would know.

    If this is the case, this strikes me as retarded... If you want lots of stand-up and bombastic knock outs, **** off and watch the boxing!!

    The whole point of MMA, as a spectacle, is the possibility of grappling...

    Amirite...?
    Yeah man, because look at how many times at ufc 104 the ref stood the fighters up!

    I really think the UFC would benefit greatly from implementing a yellow card system. Despite that it's somewhat ambiguous and at the discretion of the referee (and we all know that certain refs seem to have heavy brain damage), it would still be a positive addition.

    So what you're saying is bring back soccer kicks and stomps? I agree.

    Didn't Anderson Silva fight in Jersey(UFC10?) when a fight broke out?

    I was a little shocked. Sure, he changed sides quickly, but I guess even a dog can realize it has more in common with the wolf than with the shephard.

    I give him the names of some BJJ schools in the area, and we go our separate ways.

    Nope, the piece of **** fans in Philly can take that honor. One of my friends who was at that fight said there were more people watching the fight in the stands than in the cage. Even Dana White was standing up and watching.
