Default poor Ed Herman

Why did he back into the 2nd round? He made a bad problem worse.

And did you hear how far Goldberg was up Aaron Simpson's backside??

Don't like to see anyone injured, but I must confess to not feeling as sorry for Herman as can't stand him. Wish Dana would can his ass to be honest.

Thought Simpson looked good but Goldie near enough hailed him the new Anderson

I mention this in my recap video.

I think it was the honourable thing to do. I wouldnt blame fighters for quiting because of injury, but in the same way as a doctor stoppage, the problem is the fight is not really won or lost by anyone. If you withdraw, you also take away your opponents ability to win legitamatley. Now if you are forced to withdraw because the doctor says so, then fair enough, or if you cant handle the pain and worry about further injury, then fair enough. BUT if you can muster the strength to go back into battle for a few moments, and get properly defeated, then you allow your opponent to get the win that he deserves.

Its kinda the similar philosophy behind why Leben probably didnt tap out to the choke but chose instead to go under, though I dissagree with that as I believe a tap is good enough of a submission and fighters shouldnt go any further.

But I said the same with the BJ Penn/Sean Sherk match, that Sean should have come out and been finished and not quit between rounds...its not a capital offense, but its mega honour and heart to do what Ed Herman did. You know I actively disliked him before...but after that display, I'm interested in finding out more.

I think Leben tried to tap at the very end, but it was too late and he was out.

Well I know that Leben has gone out before and then claimed later that it made him more hardcore...but I think he was just a little late in tapping this time, he certainly tried to do something just before the lights went out

To me, it looked like he went out while he was in the middle of tapping and that's why his arm dropped.
