It was an awful fight....it was exactly what I thought it would be.

Saw a line on Facebook today.....

No Floyd, you hug your wife and punch the fighter, not the other way around.

I don't know how to post videos, but if anyone hasn't seen the "Floyd Mayweather's PunchOut" video parodying Mike Tyson's PunchOut for the NES, I highly recommend it.

Deadspin: Floyd Mayweather Is A Coward

 

I know he's a piece of shit and everybody wants to crap on him as a person, and that's totally fine, but criticizing his boxing as cowardly seems like nonsense and having that personal bias against him bleed into the analysis (which he does admit in the article).  He hasn't rigged the system, he's just the best.

He's the best, and he didn't rig the system. The system is flawed, though, when you get to go undefeated fighting that way. Again, Saturday was the perfect microcosm for everything wrong with boxing and why no one cares.

He reminds me of GSP. Boring frustrating to watch style but the best. He threw more punches than Pac and landed a lot more. He's like the 2001 Ravens, great defense and an offense that's good enough to win. Just because you're landing punches as your moving away doesn't mean they don't count.

But yeah, boxing in general is boring. Too many squash matches to pump up fighters records, 27 belts per weight class, terrible judging, etc.

Funny because I despise MMA.  Human cockfighting with very little art or grace.  No thanks.

Haaa... You're entitled to your opinion, but very little art? Where are you seeing this MMA?

I love the human cockfighting line, that never gets old...

Even though it's way safer than boxing.

I'm not even a big MMA fan, to be honest. My friends are into it and always order the events so I watch. I can understand some of the criticism, but saying it lacks art isn't one I've heard before.

It's two people brawling. It's a sanctioned fight outside a bar at closing time.

I'm with Pedro.

 

I find the whole MMA thing kinda gay, too.

 

Don't get me wrong, I know they can pound me into a pulp. I know they bang models and all that.

 

But the people who are seriously into it...all that crotch in the face stuff. Man on man skin....

 

I jokingly call it Man on Man Action (MMA)


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

MMA is true hand to hand combat. If you want to criticize that, I guess that's your choice. it's obviously sanctioned with rules, so calling it cockfighting is completely outdated and incorrect..

LOL ok now the ignorance is complete.

Gay Human Cockfighting (GHC) is my favorite sport. So what does that say about me?

I get it that people don't like it. It's violent, it can be boring if you don't appreciate certain aspects of a given fight, a lot of the fans are exactly like the stereotype meathead, at times decisions are made for entertainment rather than pure sport, etc. But fake, gay, and/or human cockfighting is just being ignorant.

Not really. It's human cockfighting. Sorry.

That makes as much sense as wanting to watch two people legally try to choke the air out....
