I thought that was a really nice display of class by Belcher after he lost last night. I thought Grove was acting like a jerk, but he is on Tito's team so I guess that would follow... Charles Bennett at Elite XC was the worst. I was totally rolling my eyes... I know fighters hating each other and acting like fools sells tickets and all that, but whatever happened to good sportsmanship? Our whole table had a discussion on this yesterday, with the other half of the table arguing that if you win, you earned the right to act like an idiot. I think the way someone loses says more about their character than just about anything, really...

I missed the fights last night but totally agree.

Well said, you can learn volumes about somebody by the way they act when they win or lose.

Sadly, it seems that when I root for fighters that actually have some character, they more often than not lose. :(
