    i love it when they pan to the fans in the seats and everybody's jumping, clapping and cheering, but when you see the fans while in the background of the fight itself, they're just sitting there watching

    i was laughing my ass off whenever someone connected with a punch *BOOM*!!!!11one11!

    That factor coupled with the fact that the same song is playing when you're playing navyfield makes it 10x funnier.

    Also, there are clips that are repeated and shown at different angles. Also, I noticed a couple clips are taken from the wrong round! A fighter had a small bruise on his face in the 2nd round and in the 3rd round it was magically gone. Of course, moments later it was back.

    :rofl::rofl: I had the idea to try to put together a mock contender MMA clip from a pride fight, since pride has so many cameras going and show so many angles of each round's highlights between rounds and stuff. that would be funny.
