Sapp never really was a fighter, he's all hyped freakshow and prowrestler, afraid to get hit.

Hopefully, now that he lost a fight because of it, Thompson will go to see a doctor about getting that hideous fucking cauliflower ear treated. Jesus Christ, that thing was disgusting.
I personally was the edge of my seat throughout the Carano/Young fight. Even though she lost, I feel like this will boost Young's MMA career. It was a good fight from both athletes.
Was this the telvesion debue of women's MMA? It's certainly the first time I've ever seen it on TV.
I've only got one more comment to support my conspiracy theory, and I'm honestly surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet. If you'll remember Thomspon took Kimbo down more than once in the first round. The ref actually stood the fighters up once while Thompson was in SIDE CONTROL! WTF?!
The only thing that seemed fake to me about those fights was the middlewieght title bout. The whole thing seemed orchistrated, and it makes sense, because they didn't want to blow thier load in one night. This way they can carry the next card with the title fight.
I am not a fighter, and I understand that the guillotine choke Thompson had in round one isn't a truly viable position, but why did the camera suddenly cut to a mile away from the fight for Kimbo to escape from it? At least that's what me and my non-fighter friends were a little pissed about.
That being said, we also thought all of the stoppages were BS, the Carrano and Lawler fights were amazing. It was strange that all the expected poster people won in pretty garbage decisions. Carrano's opponent should have had another round, no doubt, but thank God she didn't mess up Gina's lovely face.
Definetely a set up .

fucking noobs I swear.
I meant the stoppage, dumbass.
I honestly think the Scott/Lawler stoppage was done because they were running an hour over their allotted slot.
God that was terrible. Dana is either laughing or crying. And do we have ratings info yet?
I agree..I thought the fight would have been stopped at the end of round 2. Thompson dominated Kimbo with unandwered G&P/elbows for the entire last minute of the fight. No stoppage? Yet they stop the fight after 4 unanswered punches in Rd 3 from Kimbo? Total crap.

Besides, mount is not the be all end all. For mma, I like a nice 1/2 guard. It is easy to G&P, and harder to get bridged. It also leaves many possibilities for leg locks ;)
