this guy needs a shot at the belt! he should have had a shot before Diaz1
Cerrone loses one for the white/american/english speakers. some are racists, most not so much. most cheer cerrone on for the same reason mexican/americans cheer on cain. the natural human desire to root for your own kind. theres nothing negative about this(except for the racists). it's totally to be expected.
unfortunatly here their man failed them. as the sport is dominated more and more over time and ultimately taken over by foreigners/minorities these fans will find themselves with fewer fighters to identify with. they will bail out.

@koonta....not all of us are so preoccupied with race as you are, but good attempt with the bait.

this is exactly what ive been thinking mma will evolve into: u have two stances to use & everyone has them. nowadays u'll surprise ppl with that but in the future i think it'll be something u need to have..

Its normal that there will be more "coloured" fighters in mma, there is like 490 million of white people and 6,5 bilion coloured people. Its normal, but Im not affraid of the future, so I will watch some more of my fav. UFC.
A great attitude. unfortunately not all will see it that way

@koonta - according to your logic it is ok to cheer for your "race" except if you are white/american/english because then you are probably a racist but if you are not white/american/english it is fine because then you are not? Wow - anti-white racist bigot!
actually it's ok to cheer for whoever you want. for any reason even race. what i write about is human nature. in time the sport of mma will be fully dominated by foreigners/minorities. when that happens white/american/english speakers will find fewer fighters that they can identify with. because the barriers of nationality, language, race and culture will be great to become fans of these fighters at the same degree that they were fans of say, liddel and brock types

"490 million of white people and 6,5 bilion coloured people." even though i dont like the word coloured but the white people are the minority of the world. its clear to see that.

Weird how some people are so focused on race and skin color. I've seen nothing of that in that fight, I only saw two men fighting to find out who was the best. Koonta you really got a SERIOUS problem, please do us all a favor : Stop commenting fights (especialy when your comments have no link with the fights).

Not a fan of his tattoos but Pettis is one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC.

damn good fight. Entertaining. I like Cowboy he's a damn good fighter. He just got beat tonight.

Cowboy needs to learn he cant stand with everyone he needs to take ppl down and use his size sometimes if he wants to win, less exciting maybe but you gotta do what you gotta do. Great agility and technique put on display by Pettis

Wow, that left kick is a serious weapon!!! That was a fight between 2 fighters I really like and the only negative point is that it ended to fast, I would have taken 10 more minutes of these 2 greats strikers!! Good job showtime!
Oh and by the way Koonta, where do I stand if I'm a white/minority/french canadian/marry with a black women/father a brown son???? Jackass...
