Hi, everyone. This is “You were wrong” calling. Just thought you aught to know that YOU WERE WRONG.
LOL. Lindland has taught Chael well.
how said i fucked up? the ref? he would of tapped so enough
PRIDE fans are fiercely loyal, they WILL go as far as editing sound clips into a video. Remember, those are the same fans that were hoping Shogun had a brain Aneurysm so they could quantify him losing to a TUF fighter.
I thought I read somewhere the ref apologized afterward for stopping the fight prematurely
Time to move one. Sonnen did not tap — clearly, the referee was the one to stop the fight. At this point, everyone has accepted that fact and is fine by it. Everyone but you apparently.
Admit it. You dig Filho’s Tyson tattoo, don’t you? I thought so….
Rather he tapped or not, i would not want to see a fucked up broken limp arm taht has no use, not even to pleasure himself. Sonnen lost and his arm was saved, the end.
The ref didn’t apologize, Sonnen said the ref apologized. He also said he didn’t verbally submit. Sonnen is a liar.
Regardless of whether he submitted or not, the ref is supposed to stop a fight when a fighter is incapacitated. Your arm being a couple seconds away from being busted in two places = incapacitated. Deal with it.
Snap, tap or sleep = submission. Just another one for the fucked up stoppage file. Oh well.
At this point in the conversation, I’m starting to wish that the ref hadn’t stopped the fight just so we could have avoided all this bullshit. How smug would Sonnen be with his arm in a sling?
Yeah he was in a bad position and it did look like he was in deep shit. Yet Paulo fucked up that entire match and looked like shit, who’s to say it wouldn’t have been just one more thing to say how off he looked that night. I’m quite sure if you go back and watch other mma fights you can find just as precarious a situation where the trapped guy did escape and the fight went on. But whatever, I don’t care for either guy. Please stop saying Paulo is a real contender for Silva though. Cuz thats just dumb.
Who’s saying that? It’s well known that Paulo and Anderson won’t fight because they’re good budies … that’s part of the reason Filho is in the WEC to begin with.
I have no idea how we’re still arguing this … Sonnen clearly yells out tap, I confirmed it on the original broadcast copy as well.
Dude I didn’t mean you or only you. Though I do believe you did say ‘he is wasting away in the WEC’. I say that’s just where his ass belongs. I don’t see him hanging with many in the UFC at 185 much less 205. As the reference to him fighting and beating Silva that’s just a response to some bloggers comments is all. Far as what he yelled I don’t know what it was. Yeah I seen him yell but don’t know what it was. Just looked like a pain grimace to me not necessarily ‘I tap’ but whatever. Guess you better not make a sound as you fight or strain to get out of something and damn sure don’t let it be know it hurts cause they’ll just stop the fight. Anyway I didn’t and don’t care which one wins or loses in that fight. I don’t like Paulo or Sonnen.
I heard nothing. How anyone can discern a verbal tap from that video is beyond me. Let me ask you this, would the so called unheard verbal tap be admissable in a court of law. I don’t think so. My standards of proof are high.
