MMA Alan Belcher did NOT get the respect he deserved from the Montreal crowd.

    I liked the crowd at UFC 83, not just because I am Canadian, but because I think they reacted well to the fights and kept positive energy...for the most part.

    Alan Belcher came out and was showered with boos. Yes, he was an American fighting a Canadian. But if they knew Alan Belcher, they would have realized that the man comes to entertain the crowd, much more so than most fighters. I almost feel that part of his loss was from the crowd, he seems to draw so much of his energy from the audience and it wasn't there for him this time.

    Anyways, Jason Day looked really good on the feet and the ground, surprisingly. This should give a nod to Patrick Cote though, who recently dismantled Jason.

    I just finished watching it. Pretty good. I was surprised by Belcher.

    If I had no idea who he was I'd boo anyone wearing those fruity shorts too.

    Awesome display of strikes from the rubber guard in this match - I'd definitely recommend seeing it if you haven't already.

    Booing anyone that is willing to get seriously harmed for your entertainment is bullshit.
