Trash talking is an integral part of combat sports. Period. Whether that’s UFC, WWE, boxing or kickboxing. Heck, one could make the claim that it goes hand-in-hand with any individual sport. You don’t have to be a trash talker to be a great MMA fighter, but a great MMA fighter with exceptional trash talking abilities happens to go a long way in establishing crossover stars.
Honestly, there’s nothing like a little animosity between fighters and seeing it all culminate in a big fight. It’s the main reason why we are so compelled with most of the fights.
Sometimes, though, things get taken too far. Other times, they get taken a few steps too far.

Julaidan, where you at? Al Derbane, are you ready to fight for the title? Taher Hamdan, it’s your call!
