I'd like to see the compustrike. there were some good elbows and punches but BJ was avoiding more strikes then I think you are crediting.
Even Fitch and his corner agreed that the first 1 and 3/4 rounds he was losing definitely. In my book 1 and 3/4 out of 3 is a losing effort. In Pride maybe they would have judged it in Fitch's favor based on how the fight ended. Matt made a good observation that going into round 3 Cook and Camarillo were saying he had to do something big to win. I read that to mean. he had to finish the fight to have a chance at winning.
