    The glove touch thing should be no problem, just informal sportmanship- but too many cunts exploit it. Especially at amateur level. I love when 2 fighters show the respect they've earned off each other after a war at the end, but touch gloves each round, hug the last out then hoist each other up after the decision? Often this being the most contact made during the bout

    Shave or wax your shoulders & back. Arlovski did after his Belarussian immigration, you should do it also. Chest hair is fine, if you are tough enough to have it but backs & shoulders need a good waxing. No-homo.

    Most UFC fighters with tattoos. Although to be fair, I don't know if they had them before or after most of the time. Alan Belcher is defo an example though.

    1. No deliberately spitting at or in the general direction of anyone else

    2. If you must engage in trash talking:
    a) Don't bother unless it's genuinely witty
    b) Leave friends and family of your opponent out of it

    3)Don't have an overblown ring entrance unless you have the skills to back it up

    4) Remember that having really cool or otherwise impressive entrance music isn't going to help you unless you have the skills to back it up (e.g. Don't have the theme from Superman, spend the first 60 seconds after the bell dancing around until the ref makes you engage and then get Ko'd with the very first contact)

    5) If you deliberately foul someone in an extreme way ( biting, sucker punching after the bell etc) it's not up to you to make judgements about whether being banned, DQ'd etc is fair or unfair

    i once saw a nameless fighter take off his t-shirt before a weigh in, he was very hairy, chest, back - covered. as he stood there in his shorts, someone shouted, 'take your t-shirt off'

    chuckles on that one might be live experience-only

    i agree that one ought to do this. but trash-talkers and disrespectful bastards often make very entertaining characters. it would be a shame if all that were lost.

    i dunno. it's tricky. is a disrespectful bastard fighter automatically unethical?

    if people want to demonstrate that they are idiots, there is no better place for that than in mma competition lolz

    being a bellend is different to being unethical though isn't it?

    Fair point. It's not truly ethical. On one level I was being cynially elastic in my interpretation to make a point. I'm sorry that should have said...to have a rant. However, it is kind of ethical because such antics bring the sport into disrepute

    ah, like the way you put words together. i should have shut my mouth because i knew what you meant.

    but for the plebs, right, reading this thread - they may need some direction, people like plastikman and nimmy, you know the type.
