9. Quinton Jackson was poisoned by the Japanese
“I remember my stomach feeling like I swallowed a brick. I still, to this day, think that somebody poisoned my room service or something like that."

4. Quinton Jackson hadn't eaten in three days
"After reading on the Internet that fasting would keep the devil away, Jackson abstained from food for three days, ingesting only water and keeping details of his diet secretive. What Jackson didn't realize was his fast had depleted his body and virtually killed any chance of defeating Silva."

I only posted the two with rampage, but some good ones.
I would have also had the Rampage (from the other Wandy fight) excuse saying he had a cold + wandy was friends with the referee.

I was expecting to open this thread and see this...

remember when jamie came to fight and ben came to grapple? what about the time when david terrell knocked matt lindland out cold and lindland said when he woke up "well i guess the ref felt like he needed to stop it". what about a certain fighter accusing another certain fighter of cheating and being on steroids? because that wasnt sour grapes or anything. or anything with tito?

EDIT: just looked at the article and the last two that I mentioned are in it! sweet!

:laugh::laugh::laugh:

Great list. My two faves:

Tito's 'cracked skull' excuse after the Griffin fight:

Why it’s plausible: He did have a really bad black eye before the fight, and his head has its own gravitational pull, so objects are very likely to collide with it. :laugh::laugh:

BJ Penn's multiple excuses after the GSP fight:

And for good measure, he also said it was "just [his] opinion" that GSP uses steroids, though he acknowledged that he had no proof of this. Basically, GSP used every foreign substance except for Mr. Fuji's blinding salt in the eyes to win this fight illegally. :wacko::wacko:

The honourable Mentions made me laugh the most...particularly Nick Diaz missing weight because he accidently ingested salt water when swimming...and Rich Clementi claiming he didnt know that High Altitude would effect athletic performance :laugh:

Not trying to be rude but there are a few haters on this forum. Though some of the fighters on the list may not have the best character or couth, they still are pretty good at what they do. I mean you have some real winners in the construction industry but it doesn't take away from the fact that they can get the job done. I understand that some of the people listed beat Vandy...yes he "was" a good fighter and still is a nice guy. Surprised that Couture isn't on the list being he has a long list of infidelity. Just my .02!

I dont think there are haters on this forum...not really...not compared to the trolls everywhere else :)

I suppose we all are failures in some sense...I for one am not perfect by any means. I suppose the list could hold everyone in MMA and not just a select few.
Trolls on the other hand are an epic fail to every forum in the cyber-world.

???

1. We are not all public figures.
2. Most people expect public sports figures to act with a certain level of professionalism.
3. When you're rich / famous people are going to talk about what you do,
its the downside of being rich / famous.

Its the internet,
and it is a forum to discuss our thoughts an opinions.
Now, YOU might only care what a fighter does in the cage,
but me personally I follow guys who I feel like are good people,
who show heart, and who lay it on the line.

You’re absolutely right. No one has the right to laugh about anything. The sensible thing is to go to all the humor threads and call everyone ‘Trolls’. They’re as bad as those people who work in the construction industry.

We dont laugh because they failed.

We laugh because they made up some silly excuse rather then saying what you just said above.

Thats the difference...if all of them acted like you, there would be nothing to laugh at if they failed or not...but not all of them are as honnest. :unsure-1:

I called no one a troll...if you are trying to offend me I assure you, you have a long way to go...my line of profession isn't construction, but the opposite. I for one wouldn't ever consider talking trash about anyones profession as long as its a honest and just one. It seems you on the other hand have a problem with individuals in the "Construction Industry"...

Secondly, I do apologize for turning the thread into a pissing war...I was confused so to speak on the topic at hand...horrible excuses for losing I agree with...

As a matter of fact, most of my family works in the construction industry, what I have a problem with is people who have no sense of humor and spend a lot of time trying to make sure no one else does either.

If you don’t have a problem with ‘individuals in the construction industry’ why was that your go-to example of people we should respect in spite of their vocation?

Oh by the way, what the heck is the opposite of construction? Starbucks?

“I do apologize for turning the thread into a pissing war” This is just a variation on the old sucker punch and run away strategy.

I do have a sense of humor...I misunderstood the thread I suppose...I have a heart too and feel sorry for those that don't know the antonym of construction. I'm in the military and I ensure unwanted objects get destroyed. Now I would like to put the war of words to bed if Mr/Mrs. dethbob will allow it...
