this is the ultimate fighting championship, not the ultimate finishing championship. fans are getting way too hungry for spectacular finishes these days. mainly they've been spoiled by anderson silva, that's where all this conversation started in the first place. he had seven awesome finishes in a row and now that he finally doesn't finish two opponents in a row, everyone is whining. it's really sad.
but i do think there should be yellow cards for continually falling down on your butt on purpose like leites was doing.
I am not talking about taking money away for not finishing a fight but for not making an attempt to fight. Whats a warning, a point deduction going to do against a guy whos already losing 3 rounds. Leites didn't do anything to make it anywhere close to a fight. A fighter gets payed to fight, not fighting or making an attempt at it should come with some form of repercussion.
