A lot of people are feeling kinda bad for Mike Pyle right now because he’s basically been labeled a sexist jerk. I’d like to point out that he’s probably not sexist or a jerk … he’s just a moron. Let’s take a look at all the stupid things he’s done that have led up to him being stupid as far as we’re concerned:
- Stupid Mike Pyle move #1 : Turning down a chance to fight for the EliteXC belt
- Stupid Mike Pyle move #2 : Refusing to resign with the company that gave you a title shot
- Stupid Mike Pyle move #3 : Calling yourself top tier talent after washing out of the IFL.
- Stupid Mike Pyle move #4 : Saying you’re insulted that your fight is ‘under’ a women’s MMA bout.
- Stupid Mike Pyle move #5 : Losing like a bitch in the first round after claiming you’re a fucking superstar.
In the end, Mike Pyle could have handled this entire situation differently. There’s no worse time to declare you’re ‘the man’ than before a fight with someone as dangerous as Jake Shields. Because then when you lose, people say you’re full of shit. It doesn’t matter how hardcore the guy you lost to is (and Jake is pretty fucking hardcore) – you still end up looking dumb.
