Due to the obvious politics in the fight between the American Matt the HAmmer Hamill and Michael the Count Bisping I am posting this thread to encourage fightfans not to order the next UFC pay Per View event. Save your money.

It is apparent Dana White has his favorite fighters. Why does he continuously give Bisping the hometown advantage? Hamil did everything he was supposed to do to beat this guy. Who picked the judges? I wonder.

Why is there no evidence of a close fight on the UFC website?

Why were the commentators so scared to say Hamill honestly won the fight? Dana White must have Rogan and the other commentators in check! Larry MErchant and Jim Lampley would have said is was a bad decision. At least boxing makes an attempt to keep their sport clean.

Why does Chuck Liddel get to fight on Pay Per View agains Jardine? Jardine at the most is a top 10 fighter only. These PPV should be the best vs the best.

The only way I'll watch UFC again is if it is a rematch between Hamill and Bisping and it is in the states.

If you are a fightfan and you strongly feel that there should be zero corruption in either boxing or MMA then don't order UFC 76. Save your money. The customers have the power. Not the company.

Holdout until justice is served. A Rematch between Matt Hamill and Michael Bisping.

Dude, save you breathe.
Round 1 Hamill dominated Bisping, plain and simple.
Round 2 was a toss up between the two.
Round 3 was pretty even, until Bisping stuffed Hamill's attempts. In that round, Hamill was getting really sloppy with his takedowns. All in all, the round barely goes to Bisping.

So what's the problem here? Don't be spam these forums with your stupid Dana hate. Use your time for something productive, like finding a cure for cancer or something.

One more thing, not too many people are going to listen to you, or should listen to you. You do realize that everyone wants to see Jardine beat to a pulp by Chuck, and that Shogun's debut is on that UFC? Most people would by that card even if it was filled with tuffers, just because shogun's on there. Oh, I almost forgot, Machida, and tyson griffin are on the card as well.

So yeah, it's a really poor decision if anyone listens to your advise, and decides not to buy the PPV.

Hey man...whatever dude...more than half of the replies agree with the thread. You can spend 50 bucks on the next match if you want after seeing a bad product. You can get off my nuts too. It's the weekend and Ive been working my ass off so don't tell me how to recharge my batteries. It's a poor decision to spend money to make Dana White richer.

Check this out.


Ok man...we all agree that there was a bad decision right?

Politics and corruption is suspected because of the bad judging and the hometown advantage, right?

We all like UFC and MMA and we don't want it poisoned, got me?

So we can send a message by not ordering the next fight. We can all send a message by not ordering. And that message is if the product isn't of highest quality then we don't want it.

I like the UFC...but do you prefer quantity of fights or quality of fights? They are shoving fight after fight in our faces. Once every two months is better than 2 fights a month. And with so many consecutive fights ... the chances of bad decisions and mismatches are higher.

Again, SHOGUN'S debut/Jardine's beating.
We can send a message on another UFC. Crappy decisions are annoying, but again, if you don't like decisions, then don't leave it up to the judges. Houston Alexander has no worries about decisions,.... because the only decision that is needed is how soon the ref should pull him off the other guy.

I love the arrogance of people like you. Basically it is okay for US fighters to have home advantage but not for anyone else to?

I'm not doing any name calling here. I'm done with this. Yall can spend money on the next fight.

The bottom line is there should be a neutral area for each fight. Fighting in the US has to deal with the "home advantage".... Some fighters are from Ohio and some from California. So Las Vegas is good neutral area. But if a fighter is from Ohio then his fight shouldn't be in Ohio especially if it is a very big fight. Unless both fighters are from Ohio.

Likewise with countries. Japan would have been a good neutral area to fight for yesterday's matchups. This is just my suggestion. It's time for FOOTBALL!

There's nothing extremely wrong with "home advantage"...

but if it happens to be in more than one fight there suspicions are natural.

but they will soon realize that fans from UK, Japan, US, or wherever can smell the stink if it stays around...that stink is Dana White

I don't think the decision was clear cut at all and I don't think Hammill can feel do hard done by because he blew it for himself.

He should have kept it on the ground. But I still think he got the W. And maybe Hamill should consider getting back on Team Punishment.

He lte Bisping up too often in the first round as if he was trying to prove a point and I think Bisping defended effectively in the second and third rounds when the fight did go to the ground. I scored the fight a draw and would not object to a rematch but I don't think there was anythign sinister behind the decision.

BAD DECISION!
Rounds 1 and 2 went to Hamil.
Rounds 1 and 2 Bisbing wasn't being effectively agressive. He was backing off the entire round pop shotting from the outside. No power behind his punches.
Round 3 Bisbing did win.
Rogan was afraid to call out Bisbing in front of his home town crowd. Shiet I woudl've been to if you've ever been to an English Futbul game lol.
Hamil will just get better. He's training with Tito. He'll dominate soon enough.

in regards to the topic ... personally who cares about 2 fighters fighting in the main event that got Ko'd their last time out ... after getting destroyed at UFC 71 ... how are Jardine and Liddell rewarded? they get to headline in their very next UFC fight ... thats a bit ****ed up, once you process it all

so what happens to the winner? would he be mandatory? how does that work in UFC if anyone knows ... and Shogun is also a LHW .. so if he wins ... would he fight the Liddell/Jardine winner or go right at Rampage Jackson his next fight.

*I don't want to buy UFC 76 .. but renren, you prove a point that Dana White does play favorites ... hell 2 fighters that probably lasted a combined 3 minutes at UFC 71 are rewarded with main eventing UFC 76 .. go figure.

Its pretty ****, but thats always how they deal with close calls.. the crowed can be booing and Rogan will still try to play it down. It is bull**** though.


Why does Chuck Liddel get to fight on Pay Per View agains Jardine? Jardine at the most is a top 10 fighter only. These PPV should be the best vs the best.


Chuck will lose, just wait.

As for the boycot, I just watch the **** for free on sopcast channel mma-tv (if not for free at a friends house).

that's a good point..from MJ and BASErocks..

Maybe Liddell and Jardine should have been on last nights card...as an exhibition match ... i really don't care about watching two guys that got beat fight each other...it should always be winner vs winner...

and yall are right that the next UFC card is not worthy of 50 bucks and there are other ways besides PPV to watch the fight...just dont give Dana White any of your hard earned money...unless maybe it is a justified rematch between Count and Hammer

I don't think they showed it on the ****e broadcast, but between rounds 2 and 3, Bisbing was pissed as hell.. he refused to sit on the stool and was yelling at his corner and ****. He came out fired up, seemingly looking for a KO.. I believe he knew that he'd dropped 2 rounds. It was a gift.

Naw i didn't see it. We got stuck with long commercials which make me wonder if I was even watching it live. Probably not right?

Bisping was talking smack even after the decision. Man Hamil showed a lot of class. i wonder how his team feels about this whole thing.

Naw, event aired live at around 12pm Pacific, and was aired on ****e via taped delay- which is probably why it was free.
