lol yeah~

i was saying to my buddy that, " I hate seeing Okami lose but I don't really enjoy watching him win, either."

I kind of thought about Okami when this was made. He's an awesome fighter, but it's pretty obvious he doesn't have huggers due to not being exciting.

I'd say Renan Barao doesn't seem to have a bunch of huggers even though he's pretty fun to watch and very good. Phone Post

barao's a good one too, dug up a bunch of his old fights and spent hours slaving away on a thread and about 3 people gave a fuck.

i mean 3 people = 1 fuck, not a fuck apiece even.

nick diaz nut hugger -  I do believe there is some connection with fighter's upbringing and number of nut huggers, with the equation normally being "worse upbringing=warmer nuts"

Take your Carlos Condit example. From what I've seen on him in the media, his cold nuts are the product of his healthy upbringing: married parents who seemingly loved/love each other, speaks openly about childhood without that awkward silence that makes you stop asking questions. If he were more mysterious or had more awkward pauses or silences when asked what he did in high school, his metaphorical testicular hypothermia might rise a few degrees.

Then again, my theory is fucked with the BJ Penn example. Phone Post

interesting theory.

bad childhoods make you cool, is what i'm hearing.

He is huge in Korea, well not huge exactly probably 185 walking round.

 

 

well my math might be wrong but at 2.2 kilos to a pound that put him at about 407 kilos or something? or lemme see, 8 stones to a pound so he must weigh about 1480 stone.

 

dong's a big ol' boat of turkey gravy.

Actually he's not that popular here, a lot of people know who he is but Akiyama is the one they love, he's all over the TV at times, had a "Survivor" type show, and some commercials.

KZ is starting to get interest as is Bendo, they kinda like their winners here.

The show, I don't know the name, they call it Jungle Sotry or something in English, is a group of celebs that they put through survivor type situations. One show they stranded them on a a sinking homemade/makeshift raft(think Tom Hanks raft in Cast Away)and they had to make it to the big ship and climb abourd while trying to keep the raft afloat. Another one i saw they were trying to scavange for food, they were turing over rocks and eating sea creature and stuff. They also chased soemthign that looked like an eel over the reef, Akiyama got lucky and nailed it with a stick he was using like a baseball bat. I dont' really understand what's goign on, I use my wife as the translator if I see someting I want to know about, she watched the show all the damn time.

mighty mouse is another example of a guy with a bangin' skill set who gets no love~

consistent performer but just lacks that charisma score;  we should campaign to get him on the UG.  i want to see mighty mouse use a cuss word.

What about mike pierce? He's been in the UFC since 2009 and only has three losses and they were to Fitch(decision), Hendricks(split decision), and Kos(split decision). He's probably one of the better fighters that no one ever talks about. Phone Post

moral of the story seems to be that wrestlers with good childhoods don't get nut huggers.
