Harsh verbal exchanges between fighters in the UFC isn't uncommon.
Before the bout, fighters love to trash talk one another. They insult each others skill, personality, and sometimes even their hometown.
Then there are those few fighters that go above and beyond, they reach a whole new level of trash-talk.
You may be wondering, who are those fighters?
Well, let's take a look at those legendary men who just can't keep their mouths shut.
Sure we can barely understand him, and he's only fought in the UFC once, but James Toney's pre-fight antics were memorable.
Whether he's insulting his sparring partners, or putting a sparkly gown on Randy Couture's action figure, James Toney is high in the ranks when it comes to trash-talking.
The Huntington Beach Bad Boy.
The funny thing about Tito Ortiz is not only does he talk crap about other fighters, but
he's not the sharpest tool in the shed either.
Half the garbage Tito says about other fighters doesn't make any sense whatsoever.
Tito stated that his upcoming opponent, Matt Hamill was "soft in the head."
Matt Hamil is not dimwitted, he's just deaf.
Josh Koscheck could be one of the most hated fighters in the UFC.
He manages to talk badly about some of the nicest fighters out there, like Georges St-Pierre.
Koscheck has called him fake, insulted Canada, and so on and so forth.
After defeating Paul Daley at UFC 113 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada (Georges home country) he said:
"Hey, don't worry! The Pittsburgh Penguins are gonna kick your ass next week. Yeah. And then I'm gonna beat St-Pierre so you guys are gonna lose twice. How 'bout that? That's right Montreal!"
Hardy is one of those fighters that you either love, hate, or love to hate.
One of his most famous victims of trash-talk is Marcus Davis.
Hardy accused "The Irish Hand Gernade" and his love for Ireland as just a gimmick.
Famous quotes: "(Josh Koscheck) is kind of like a turd that won't flush away."
"(Marcus Davis's) website looks like an Irish gift shop exploded."
How could we ever forget Chael Sonnen's pre-fight shit-talking?
All the comments he made before UFC 117 about Anderson Silva sounded like something straight from a stand-up comedy act.
Memorable quote: “He’s a grown man with earrings. He’s a grown man with saggy pants,
pink t-shirts and crooked hats. Go join a gang, don’t get in the UFC.”
Sonnen also managed to talk trash about the Nogueira brothers:
"I think a black belt under the Nogueira brothers is like saying, 'I got a free toy in my happy meal."
"One's a punching bag and the other is just irrelevant" (speaking of the Nogueira brothers)
