Javi, Bisping has no one but himself to blame for that. I don't know of anyone that thought Jorge had more than a puncher's chance in that fight and he certainly wasn't proving anyone wrong during that first round. However, Bisping clearly threw an obviously illegal knee and Jorge's performance was noticeably decreased afterwards.

Please allow me to be clear: though I was rooting for Jorge, I had no illusions that this was a comparable match-up (the UFC was feeding Mike another can for bolster his record). I didn't expect him to win by anything other than flash KO, but be that as it may, the course (not necessarily outcome) of the fight was unarguably altered by that knee.

It's like GSP's greasing situation: I don't think that he needed that. I think he would have won regardless, but we'll never know what would have happened because what did happen was illegal. It's tainted. Period.
