    You've followed the drama, now watch its conclusion. Props to everyone involved... in the match, not the drama.

    I guess my only critique would be that it was over so fast. And the lack of any stand-up action, but hey whatever, a win is a win.

    That being said, love the spirit, love the Throwdown, and it's always hilarious when internet battles become t3h d34dly

    Hmm... what kind of "finishing too fast" joke should I make in reply to that?

    you'd think that Matt would have demonstrated at least a little crapple defense. He demonstrated nothing but his own lack of foresight.

    Wrong! Actually he also demonstrated a lack of fashion sense.

    Fashion Police tag?

    Edit:

    As someone who is stumbling into the tail end of this a little bit, was there any predetermined skill gap between the two, or was this supposed to be evenly matched?

    It looked like when Kin came in, Matt was like oh ****, and tried to land a hook on him before he got there, but it was too late. Sprawling, or thai clinching would have shut that down, possibly.
    This has happened to me, sparring, where I'm concerned with hitting, when I should defend the clinch/takedown. If someone's already almost closed the difference, it's defense time.

    The lack of day-to-day familiarity with takedown attempts by grapplers shows. Same with me, I'd have to go into something like this, thinking specifically to wait for the takedown, rather than wing it, or give everything equal weight of attention.
