I was high as **** and already mad at Herb Dean. In fact, I'm still high as **** and still mad at Herb Dean. For existing.
Now, regardless, me point stands. It was a work.

I thought the time out was pretty inconstant and questionable. I was surprised it wasn't a warning and i say that because earlier in the night there was a (i cant remember the fight it was though,) downward elbow to the back of the head that was super visible and nothing was even said.
With all that said. I still think Mr Lesnar would have lost, maybe not but that what i would guessed. I mean he rocked that other guy quite a bit but he hung in there i was surprised, Lesnar hit hard and fast! I was vary impressed with both of them.
Im vary surprised you weren't pissed at Noguara's make-money--rope-a-dope for the belt. I like the way he seemed to have little to no ground game it all in the first 2 rounds and Own Tim all of a sudden in the 3rd. LOL :boxing:

in all fairness, they do look somewhat alike.
It was defnietly a completely biased call. In fact, Mazzagatti obviously hated Brock from the start. Notice the tone when he says "we WILL have a clean fair fight". Like he considered Brock a lesser person that won't follow the rules.
So yeah **** that asshole for tarnishing Mir's victory. For those that care, Mir was never in trouble, read the last few posts (particularly El_Macho's) in Cracky's other thread taking screenname bets on the fight. A good explanation of how it was pretty ineffective GnP. Then rewatch the fight. You'll notice Mir is barely phased.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

I think the sentiment going around that Mazzagati was going to stop the fight, realized it would have been premature, and used the point deduction to cover it up is probably right. That's really what it looked like to me. However, you look at it, I think he wouldn't have ended it if left there. Mir was in that much trouble again right before getting the submission. He got to his side and protected himself, while working out what to do. Not going to argue with Cracky though. That's like trying to enter a building by smashing a hole in the wall with your face.

Yep. In rewatching it, I really don't think Lesnar was doing too much damage with those arm punches either. As you say, Lesnar was doing the same later when he got x-guard dumped and kneebarred.
Furious pace though.

As for Mazzagatti, was watching some IFL last night and his stoppage of White-Whitehead was absolutely absurd, even Bas said it was a horrible call that Whitehead talked Mazzagatti into.
