If you were on Carmouche

especially if you made money, you shouldn't feel the least bit of awful about profiting from whatever decision Beltran made.  I feel Carmouche was en route to ending it and/or pulling away in the last round. More importantly, if Velasquez was going to win, so what?  How many times have you been proper ****** by bad fighter IQ, bad judging, or bad reffing?  You take what the MMA gods give.

A mistake by Beltran you mean?  
He still maintains she was out, even after the fight.
