Actually I think you have a point with the nut shots. CroCop was looking ok early on at least. Even if you recover from groin shots, you know your stamina just goes to ****, so i'm wondering if that's why he gassed in the 3rd (well, that and the repeated nut shots).
The ones in the 3rd round were really bad. Kongo delivers like 2 straight knees to the groin, then BJM moves in to separate them and as he grabs Kongo he throws a MONSTER knee to the groin as BJM is pulling him off. Then you wonder why CroCop was pretty lethargic in that round.
I couldn't believe he didn't take a point there. Kongo got warned, then he gives at least 3 straight groin shots including one as he's being pulled off. If that doesn't lose you a point, i don't know what does.
BTW, Speaking of BJM, french people and nut shots without taking points, see GSP/Hughes 2. (although those were accidental :)
Only one of his fights so far has been in the states. The loss to Gonzaga happened in London as well.

THIS IS NOT AN EXIT

well the reports have said that cro cop suffered a broken rib from the first round
i posted his comments about it somewhere within the few UFC 75 threads on here
jsampras3: Trigg/Hughes-2 nut shots stand out more in my mind than GSP/Hughes (which i think were exxagerated by Hughes as he was being overwhelmed)
Ahem. Keith Hackney vs. Joe Son, anybody?
vinny, we're talkin about nut shots that happened that refs were slow to react, or failed to see it
your example doesnt apply here, since there was no rule against it back then
but ur probably still on track to be the biggest post whore of the year....i bet u wanna hit your 1000 post mark before the end of the month huh =P
The plan is to be the first poster ever to get 1 million posts. I have a lot of work to do, since some people are way ahead of me. Sorry, whenever anyone talks about nut shots in MMA that's the fight I always think of. Of course, there is no reason for me to immediately post about it, but (see above).
10years on, and I *still* wince just thinking of it !
