Why oh why do we have to have so much trash talk before fights.If the fight is a clash that will draw crowds or make the public want to watch it, then there should be no need for trash talk.
The Huni Gallen fight was a clasic exaample.So much crap talk from both fighters.Why!!! The fight was a sell out.All the trash talk would have driven more people away from paying an exorbitant amount of money to Fox that wanting to PPV.
Now we have Tszyu and Zerafa talking crap.The fight is three weeks away and so many insults will be handed out from both fighters.
Fox sport just loves it.
I thought that once upon a time that trash talk was all American bullshit, it saddens me to see Australians going down the same path.

A good talker will sell many more PPVs than a good fighter...

Need not look further than Chael P Sonnen v Mighty Mouse for proof of this

There's a reason they talk and the good talkers sell. Tried and true back to Ric Flair or even earlier

If you want semantics, sure, guideline, whatever helps
talking helps

But GSP and Khabib talk the least sh*t are are/were megastars

If you have star power you dont need to talk sh*t

I'm the man of the hour
Too sweet to be sour
What you see is what you get
And what you didn't was better yet
I'm the ladies choice
A man's regret
And if you bet against me
You made a bad bet!

The gangster, Chael P Sonnen

He had a bit of a character he went into i think but he had some absolute gold with anderson and wanderlei
It's no surprise Colby is he protege. They both became pro wrestling heels. Chael had more of a silver tongue than Colby though

Colby is too fake, weird and forced. Hes terrible at it which i think hes leaned into making it weirder haha

Chael was a smooth talker and quick witted, Colby is neither

Not what I'm saying mate. Colby is best friends with Chael. He's clearly taken his advice on becoming a heel
