Kos should have won that fight considering the way the Garcia/Nam Phan was scored.
So lets all support Kos for getting the fight stolen from him by crappy NBA judges!!December 12, 2010 at 7:47 am #105368
i think you are right… get it right you stupid bastards.December 12, 2010 at 11:25 pm #105444
they set a precedent and they need to stick to it.December 13, 2010 at 1:59 am #105478
Agreed. They got it wrong in the Bocek fight as well.December 13, 2010 at 5:36 am #105504
Clearly Struve tapped.December 13, 2010 at 7:08 am #105510
I wholeheartedly agree letib, and number 4 is a great example that something has to change, and us as fans are being screwed out of good fights. They should put an asterisk next to this event.December 13, 2010 at 7:55 am #105508
The reffing last night was horrible.
1)In the first bout John Makdessi continually scored illegal kicks to the body and head using a prohibited Kung-Fu style. there is a reason nobody else kicks like that. Its dangerous and someone might accidentally get knocked out. We have to voice our opinion on this as concerned MMA fans.
2)Matt Riddle should have gotten the nod. He spent 3 rounds executing a perfect game plan by smashing up Pierson’s fists with his face. He even was able to block leg kicks with his inner thigh. The entire time he did this, he still managed to taunt Pierson into attacking by shadow boxing to ridicule right in front of him. Matt Riddle is the new Jon Jones ladies and gentleman. Welcome to the Riddle era.
3)Joe Stevenson was in the middle of executing a new move he learned at Jackson’s when Miragliotta prematurely stopped the fight. Its an adaptation of the famous “lay n pray”called “lay n sleep”. You could see it in Stevenson’s eyes as soon as the fight was stopped that he was dreaming for the fight to continue. Now we only know the first part of the move.
4)The Charles Oliveira stoppage was warranted except that Oliveira should have been given time to reconsider his tapping. A fighter has 2 knees and can therefore afford to destroy one while still being able to pull off a win. Time must be allotted by the referee to make sure the fighter is very sure he wants to opt out of fighting. The same should apply to chokes. The fight should only be stopped when the fighter taps with both hands at the same time or 16 times with one hand to the beat of Black Sabbaths Iron Man solo.
5)Stefan Struve Should be tested for illegally cycling on giraffe growth hormones. Clear signs that he is on them were evident at the event. When he walked out, we could see on his back and his chest that his skin was very red from being abnormally stretched beyond its limits.
6) GSP won the fight but only because Herb Dean did not stop the fight when Koscheck accused GSP of kicking him in a region close to or around the groin. He made the motion towards the area and made a squinting face but Herb ignored him. He was able to recover from the squinting face imidiately but the damage was done. We learned after that he was about to execute his secret move that he had been practicing with the boyz down at AKA. The move is a secret one that Fitch will try to implement when he gets his 2nd title shot in 2015.
Its not only the judging that is ruining MMA.December 13, 2010 at 12:25 pm #105549
Letibleu: About no. 6 on your list. I think you’re forgetting that every UFC event according to the unified rules must contain at least 6 (7, if it’s an event sanctioned by the CSAC) referee initiated time outs due to low blows.
Leading up to the main event there had been a suspicious absence of groin shots, which would have given Kos the right to use an additional 15 min recovery time (remember, alloted recovery time for low blows for a whole event must be used by the end of said event, which makes sense when you think about it) and the right to claim that his “package” is so big, hits to the upper thighs count as shots to the groin.
I was shocked at this blatant disregard of the rules, Herb Dean should have known better, but most of all I feel sorry for those fans who were expecting to see a bunch of men kick each other in the nuts, who had to go home severely disappointed.December 13, 2010 at 2:38 pm #105552
I read that Koscheck is still in Montreal. His orbital and another bone are broken. An air pocket has developed and it prevents him from flying anywhere. He needs medical surgery as soon as possible. He has to be driven down today from Montreal to Boston (a 6 to 8 hour drive. With the wonderful weather going on, it could easily turn into a 10 hour drive). Koscheck is stuck in hostile territory, in the middle of a freezing snow storm, he is probably in a shitload of pain, he looks like the cookie monster’s distant inbred cousin and his career is fucked for at least one year. The only thing he has to look forward to is a long annoying drive followed by tests, surgery and many long months of doing no physical activity. He probably will never get another title shot while St Pierre is at the top. He might even have lost his drive to fight.
In hindsight, knowing what I know now, it is more satisfying than a knockout. GSP fucked him up long term.
At least he got an extra 100K for it.
It’s as if instead of just stealing a kids lunch at school, you put ex lax in his sandwich, you lock all the bathroom doors and you tell the girl he has a crush on that he wants to talk to her but he is shy. Much more satisfying in the long run.December 13, 2010 at 5:49 pm #105566
I agree. Jim Miller TOTALLY lost. I actually thought he was tapping.December 13, 2010 at 6:24 pm #105570
I swear if you ask Rogan Riddle won that fight. His commentary was hhhhhorrible in that fight.December 14, 2010 at 12:36 am #105658
I did not have rogan commentary during the fight. The winner was clear cut for me. Riddle won that fight. His face punch to the fist technique was genious!December 14, 2010 at 2:43 am #105687
I’m bleeding – making me the victor!
