So the guy loses because of a footwear problem?
I've seen that happen to boxers. Heard of it before in MMA. It's shitty, because his equipment guy is supposed to be watching out for **** like that.
If you think the guy is full of ****, wait for his second fight. If it's another excuse, you'll know.

Well, it doesnt look like he did too bad (it doesnt seem like he got his ass kicked or anything) but if he couldnt get traction then neither could his opponent.
Two things I liked in that thread though:

i am also one of kevin's students. let me clarify a few things as well.
our art is more of a reality combat style so if kevin were to go into the cage he would have to dumb down a lot of his technique because they like to restrict the kinds of moves you can do in the cage
Hes got t3h d34dly moves! :new_Eyecr
And then the play by play when one guy managed to get the other in a Boston Crab- that would be the best submission ever, only to have the guy crawl to the side of the ring and grab the ropes to escape, WWF style.

anyway, here is what happened:
throughout the training jason had been wearing the same shoes he was to wear in the fight. this resulted in his shoes having like, no traction hehe because they didn't wipe the mat between matches. unfortunately jason was not able to root himself and therefore was unable to attack. however, jason got out of the 8 or so holds his opponent tried to put him in and left the ring uninjured.
Bullshit. I've wrestled in a ring after it just finished raining. I've wrestled in out door venues while it was raining. I've wrestled in a ring with both of us soaked in beer because the crowd is throwing drinks. If you can't get traction because the mat was wet, that's your own fault for wearing the wrong shoes.

why couldn't it have been the ring girl with the wardrobe malfunction? that would be a much better reason to lose.

Kevin is very small, and would quite literally, have to kill his opponant, since if he fought within cage rules, he might get killed by people twice his size. They frown upon ripping off peoples balls and ears in cage fights...
Wow, Ashida Kim said something very similar, except it was about being old. I hope these guys realize they're in the same boat with Ashida Kim now...
Of course, I'm not sure which is more pathetic...that or the shoes excuse.
