mma fighters dont look down on boxing, they generally have nothing but respect for boxers...but boxers seem to bad mouth mma an awful lot.
Ive never heard an mma fighter claim he could beat any boxer in the ring but mayweather seemed to believe he could beat anyone in the UFC, how quickly he backed down says an awful lot about how much shite he spouts.

The amount of replies on this thread firmly proves for once and for all how popular Ultimate Gheyness is an obscure "sport" for nerds who are looking for that something WWF cannnot provide once they hit 17 years of age

I watched two one hour Pride specials on FSN the other night. One was the best of Quinton Jackson and the other was on Fedor Emelianenko. Both were great shows. They showed extended highlights of their main matches and some quick clips from other bouts so it was well done. I'll be the first to complain about the boredom generated by two guys rolling around on the floor trying to out maneuver each other but with these two (especially Jackson) there wasn't too much of it.
Fedor is in a different planet to the rest btw. He looks like he could beat anyone at their respective style so he can change it up whenever he wants. He also has an unreal ability to turn things around when it looks like he should lose. I guess that's why the guy is undefeated in 5 years and the only loss of his career was a blood stoppage that he later easily avenged!

The best part of from each of the repective shows I mentioned

Rampage

(shite quality but amazing feat of strength, especially cause he was about to get his arm locked)

Fedor

(from getting Suplexed like that to winning within a minute, unreal!!)

You don't actually have a valid point or argument to make do you?

You don't like it and thats fine. Its not for everyone. But it seems you are just trying to provoke a reaction by making stupid points and firing petty insults.

Is this a hilarious attempt at acting the WUM and getting us RATTLED™ ?

Mission failed on every level lad.

Fedor Emelianenko is set to fight on a UFC card at some stage this year..
IMO nobody in UFC can touch this lad, nobody can even come close so would be interesting to see how somebody like Liddell would do against somebody this tough.
Read in an interview yesterday too that Dana White is still trying to get the UFC vs Pride tournament back on...
but with lots of pride fighters chopping and changing, could make it a bit messy.
