HUH?????????????

So when Matt gets kicked in the balls it's partially Matt's fault for not "protecting himself at all times"???????????

I don't think any fighter should have to protect himself from an illegal blow. Ever.

I agree Everyone has a punchers chance in this sport.
Yes, in Pride it was legal, and was usually a show-stopper.

As for "he should protect himself at all times", he was protected from a knee to the head. By rule, being down is a protection ,that's why fighters will drop a hand to the mat when caught in a front arm-in headlock.

Besides, trying to blame Jorge's "lack of defense" for Mike's illegal knee is ridiculous. If Mike had eye-gouged him, would Jorge also be at fault for not protecting himself? If Mike had bit him, would Jorge also be at fault for not protecting himself? If Mike had cup-checked him, would Jorge also be at fault for not protecting himself? If Mike had knifed him (ok, hyperbole, I know), would Jorge also be at fault for not protecting himself?

The Fact here is Rivera got stopped took a well deserved knee to the head and I loved it.

Well according to some people Matt should have stopped fighting gotten his bonus and asked for a rematch.

I understand Michael was at fault for the illegal knee. I just don't think he should apologize and regardless of the knee he was going to win the fight.

There's a difference, though, between the damage caused by a knee to the groin & a knee to the head. You can recover from a cup check if given a few minutes. You can't recover from a concussion in a few minutes.

Why shouldn't he apologize for throwing an illegal strike? I mean, he broke the rules & should apologize for that, right? I'm not saying that he didn't have a right to be mad about the vids jorge posted (that's up to him), but he certainly didn't have the right to break the rules & spit on/at/near/next to (whatever) someone.

Its okay

Now I cant wait for the Fitch vs BJ rematch where Fitch will beat BJ again.
3 months later BJ will move up to MW and beat Akiyama where he will earn a shot at Anderson Silva.


LOL jk ill stop know. But its going to happen believe me.
