    Judging by that video, fighters still like fighting. I just don't appreciate how desperate some people are to say an opinion. Whether or not, an opinion is good depends on it's quality. Rather than embarrasing myself here, I'm just being honest. Of course, I'm not trying to treat some people as important. The fact that I'm serious here is more important than how certain people have spoken. Some people look distracting, but at least that's their problem. I personally respect the UFC, even though to respect myself. I can't just say that I'm wrong here. At least, I don't need to look bad here. Whether I have to bad about what I say is my choice. I really don't know why some people were quickly interested in a video. Anyway, I was quickly interested in being serious. I know that fighting is serious, unlike some people's lives. It's one thing to respect an aspect of fighting, but it's another to just watch fighting. I was be talking because I wanted to have spoken. It might be a coincidence that some people were wrong or foolish, except fighters. I strongly think it's a coincidence that I've decided to talk or forget about something. It's intentional when some people embarras themselves here. I'm hardly surprised about what I say. It must've been a coincidence that things disappoint fighters. At the end of the day, I won't just complain endlessly. If anything, it's very clear that I should deserve respect. It's definitely bad when fighters damage themselves with punches, kicks or elbows. I'll appreciate what I say, without getting concerned by some random people. I can't believe how ignorance is a factor for some, let alone me. I do hope I'm clear here. I already did want to argue, regardless of who suddenly gets surprised by me. Like I said, it's my responsibility for making sure some people are irrelevant. I can have more reasons to be happy, than see some irrelevant people. Anyway, I've gladly been truthful..

  91. Mr Right Russian Guy

    Mr Right Russian GuyPrije mjesec

    @Bryce Stewart Also, I was just saying some irrelevant things. I don't care what you get interested in. Your interest for what you say should only make you embarrased. I don't know what you tend to appreciate, but at least fighters are stronger. Also, a video game doesn't make you personally strong. If you want to look for attention or say true things, realise the consequences. You definitely look bad, unless you belong in an asylum. Just because fighters fight, doesn't mean you can prove everything about it. I highly doubt you are a fighter yourself. I'll ignore you so you'll see this anyway. Of course, fighters know how to fight in the UFC. I highly suggest you realize your innocence, otherwise, God will punish you. Fighters in the UFC, than anything you've ever said here. Hardly ever do I get concerned by a random opinion. At least, you your parents should probably be ashamed of you. Your opinions are as useless as an empty water. How fighters fight makes them important, judging by their performaces. As far as I'm concerned, you were just desperate for attention. If I were you, I'd reconsider who you are trying to be. If I were you, I'd realize how some fighters hardly fight. I don't want to respect you, even as you have a lot to prove. You are hardly that type of person to deserve pity, let alone deserve respect. Whether fighters deserve respect or not, depends on their performaces. You definitely need to get lost, before you'll make another mistake in life. Anyway, lets deflect a little away. Just because you look a little distracting, doesn't mean you deserve importance for an opinion. I will be serious as long as I'm talking here. You are just another hateful person, judging by how you behave here. You were probably desperate to make a comment, which should've made you weaker. If you've want an argument, I've given you an arguement. At the end of the day, you still have a reason to be pathetic. Whether fighters fight for a few reasons has nothing to do with us. Stop trying to get attention and just shut up for once. I will disrespect you and you should know this anyway. Keep your interests to yourself. Don't act as if everything from you is good. You're pathetic, just like your life. Do me a favour and make yourself disappear. Whether you made yourself embarrasing was not my problem. As far as I'm concerned, you just said a random thing. As far as I'm concerned, you still deserve to be disrespected.

  92. Mr Right Russian Guy

    Mr Right Russian GuyPrije mjesec

    I strongly think presidents can misuse their powers. Whether or not, there are unnecessary interventions here isn't a big difference.I can understand some people are pathetic, judging by their ignorance. Some people had to find other ways to bother me, or relax. I had to find other ways to bother some people. I had to find some ways to have been friendly. We must find some way to be friendly or better. Some people must find some way to be friendly or better. I'd rather see a better situation, than not see any situation. One of the worst things some people can do is fight with me. Also, it's a good point. One of the worst things we can do is fight some people. One of the worst things some people can do is fight with me.Of course, soliders fire cannons as well. Jerusalem is such a sacred city itself. We had to find other ways to relax. We will find all the ways to relax. We would find other ways to be serious or bad. We would probably find other ways to be serious or bad. Also, it's a good point. Some people would find other ways to be serious or bad. Also, it's a good point. Some people had found other ways to be serious or bad, even though they looked weak. Some people will find other ways to be serious or bad. I was in such a long car journey once. It was rather interesting to see two countries meeting. It's rather concerning to see a bunch of hateful people focusing on one aspect. Whether or not I take the conversation in the video serious is my choice. Whether or not, I respect some people is my decision. It's pathetic to see some people lacking knowledge about true things. Just because I'm talking, doesn't mean I don't understand what I say. At the end of the day, it's better to ignore some people. It's good to see peace between leaders, rather than countries being at war. I do understand politics and it is an important thing. Whether politics is important can be debatable. I can understand more about politics, than useless opinions from some people. Some people unfortunately look distracting here. I respect what I say, unlike how I disrespect unnecessary interventions from some people. I don't have to be fair, just by talking once.

  93. Mr Right Russian Guy

    Mr Right Russian GuyPrije mjesec

    It's not my fault hateful people exist here. might see some good people, when really it's just a different reality. Whether or not I judge more aspects of things can vary. I'm very sure that meetings like that matter. I will respect what I say, rather than make myself look weak. I can respect myself, than respect some people pointlessly. It's one thing to say things pointlessly, but it's another to say true things. I'm very sure I won't embarrass myself, especially when I'm right. There might be a war between countries, when really it is unlikely. Some people don't even know much about themselves, let alone a pandemic. The fact that, I can get distracted by useless opinions can be my problem. Many armies have hardly taken cities or territories. The fact that a country is great depends on it's problems. I probably deserve to be serious here. Some people probably deserve to be serious. Those decisions made were probably serious. I'll probably make some people mad or jealous. Some people think they are right, when really they just embarrass themselves. I probably deserve hatred for what I say. I've hardly forgotten about hatred. It was quite interesting seeing two presidents talking to each other. At least, countries are not at war. I've barely made a few opinions. At least, what I say is still important. Some people have barely made a few opinions. At least, what I say is more important, than a few opinions. I'll hardly be embarrassing, just by saying things. I can forgive myself for being too serious. It's one thing to be right, but it's another to be wrong. I think some people will hardly believe everything I say. However, I'm not trying to be paranoid. Presidents have met again, which was hardly surprising. I can already see how pathetic some people are. I'll even talk about things my way. I do hope I'll get some recognition. I'm bringing useful information. However, it should compel some people to realize.
