    Lesnar Mir Mazzagatti Controversy

    I think this needs it's own thread considering people are freaking out about it elsewhere. Including myself, people thought that Mazzagatti's mid-GnP pause in the fight was BS. It seemed to some like Mazzagatti was possibly going to stop the fight, then changed his mind and covered for it by taking a point away for strikes to the back of the head but what was also shocking/suspicious was Mazzagatti's apparent lack of warning for taking the point away when Lesnar may have only hit him in the back of the head once.

    Well, the interview is out:: http://mmajunkie.com/2008/02/05/refe...com-interview/

    What controversy? Lesnar hit Mir in the back of the head at least 4 times that I can see. Doesn't qualify as an accident when there are repeated infractions.

    The controversy was generated because those strikes to the back of the head weren't particularly visible in the PPV. Plus the warning wasn't captured loud enough for the audience to hear.

    Then you mix zealot BJJ nuthuggery, WWE-waaagh-<insert random expletive>, a little bit of conspiracy theory powder, the power invested by the interweebz to easily talk ****... and voila, you have a 'controversy' :tongue6:

    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
