Silva is their p4p4p king but he hgas been KO'd by a brazilian clubfighter in 2 minutes. EVen worse a brazilian clubfighter, who would probably last 30 seconds with an American or European champion. A boxer of world class ability would KO most of MMA's best.
How come your post reminds me of one made by an annoying loudmouth Tapout wearing MMA fanboy?

How do you figure some of those same hard men around the "hood" don't watch MMA too?

Hell, have you ever been to places like Japan, those who are into MMA over there actually have legit martial art backgrounds like kickboxing, boxing, catch wrestling and therefore hardmen in their own right. Same thing is true in Brazil and places like Russia, Holland and recently China.

im under the impression the win adding is done for no other reason then to inflate the fighter, and make him appear much better.

as 3-3 or 3-4 doesn't appear as menacing as 12-4.
Does this only happen in the UFC or did other MMA promotions do the same tactic?
