Poll Results: Should the UFC make teammates fight each other?

In our latest polling here at BJPENN.COM we wanted to ask the readers here what you think of these teammate vs. teammate matchups on the horizon and whether or not you think the UFC should make it policy or not.

With the Georges St-Pierre vs. Carlos Condit match in the works as well as a light-heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Rashad Evansthis topic is relevant to the current landscape of the sport.

After more than 2,100 votes have been cast it is clear that the fans think the UFC should force teammate vs. teammate matches.

64.3% (1374 votes) of voters are in favor of teammates fighting each other while 35.7% (762 votes) are opposed to it.

That’s it for this week, as always, come back on Monday for our latest polling installment.

Thank you for your participation.

    MMA isn’t a team sport. Saying “teammates” shouldn’t fight each other is like saying the 49ers and the Raiders shouldn’t play each other because they’re from the same state. Doesn’t make any sense.

      You must not train at all then or you’r the type that isn’t loyal to your team or teammates. Fighting a person, who helps you get ready for a fight, day in and day out is not someone you should fight. What your saying is totally opposite b/c the 49ers and the Raiders are two totally different teams you idiot.

      • Ryan M says:

        You’re the idiot. Fighting isn’t a team sport. Training you can have a team, but inside the cage they don’t help you anymore. It doesn’t make sense to avoid your training partners. Whoever is next in line should fight each other. All these guys are just scared cuz their training partners have a little more info on them. It goes both ways though.

        • Dan says:

          I know it’s all up to you once your in the cage, but it basically splits up the team when one teammate fights each other. Why would you wanna fight someone that trains with you, as opposed to somebody else who doesn’t? The only case that I see where it is alright if its for the championship belt.
