@CheckLeftHook, very true. As far as Yan and Eddie Alvarez for that matter, I get it because it’s a fight and instinct takes over. I loathe Greg Hardy (woman beater &Eagles fan) it’s true but I blame his corner kore for that. He’s an athlete green in the sport. I feel that’s the kinda thing his corner needs to aid with. He’s busy, or should be, learning techniques and training, IMO. You’re not wrong though.

insulting two fighters that got dq'd has nothing to do with the widely debated topic of how a mma fight is scored. Its not well known, there are lots of discrepancies from judge to judge. you might agree with the askarov dec but that doesnt mean you can't watch one fight in the entire ufc history and not agree with the judges one time. its happens everyone is human
