    I don’t know if your list has any unpopular opinions. I imagine most would agree with what you said.

    12-6 elbows being banned is bananas - especially from the bottom (WTF?)


    "the clock doesnt move" = from the bottom is legal

    Pride era Fedor was mostly a pretty boring fighter to watch.

    Sakuraba was carefully protected and managed and had all kinds of shadiness in his career until his bosses moved on in the wake of him getting Wanderlized.

    Ken Shamrock never won a legitimate fight against anyone with even an inkling of what they were doing.

    John Danaher runs Renzo's like a cult leader and isn't really that bright, but hides behind being a Philosophy school dropout and a Kiwi accent to convince people otherwise.

    BJ should've lost his fight with Serra.

    Jackson and Wink are mostly to blame for Jon Jones behavior from the moment they played Rashad.

    Joe Rogan's whole podcast career is due to forum members ceaselessly promoting it for him and giving him feedback in the early days.

    Wanderlei never would've had a career if he hadn't illegally head-butted Guy Mezger.

    Khabib is an awful human being and looks like a better fighter than he actually is because his opponents have been either undersized or terrible wrestlers.

    Henry Cejudo isn't a real champ because he didn't even beat DJ.

    DC could fight Jon Jones 100 times and he would lose every time.

    The fans are the main reason fighters get exploited.

    Scott Coker is no better than Dana White besides being friendlier.

    The Culinary union was right.

    with the exceptions being Shamrock's win over Funaki in 1994, and DC could beat JBJ a couple times...

    All This.

    There's no way Ken's fight with Funaki was legitimate. His fight with Suzuki was obviously a work so there's no reason to believe any of the fights between those three were genuine.

    Lol if you rewatch that fight, the clarity that it's a work really sharpens. Funaki was the king of putting people over. He sacrificed his body for that organization and really deserves credit for keeping the show entertaining for the puroresu base and occasionally convincing for people who liked fights. He and Ken were seasoned stiff workers. Much more hilarious was the Funaki/Suzuki match that same year.

    Jeremy Stephens getting eyepoke NC'd in 11 seconds after spending $30,000 on training camp in Mexico City is sweet justice for all the times he brutally hit opponents who were already knocked out

    McGregor is a ultimately a very nice person who just made some bad decisions.

    Jon Jones is a horrible person who also made bad decisions.

    I’m not racist though
