    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Wasn't Royler Gracie ashamed?

    I had the great pleasure to watch Pride 8 the other night. ALL the fights were so awesome, even the Coleman vs Morais (which everyone said was boring; the control!).

    After watching the Sakuraba vs Royler Gracie fight, where the ref stopped it, I felt a tinge of disgust at Royler. Why couldn't he simply respect the fact that Sak didn't want to rip his arm out of its socket at the rotator cuff? Sak, I feel, kept looking at the ref hoping he would stop it before he destroyed Gracie's arm. For goodness sake, he spent most of the fight on his ass begging Sak to come down to the ground. His legs were so shat on he could hardly stand up anyhow!!

    It was the antics of Royler yelling "I didn't tap, I didn't tap!" that really pissed me off. It reminded me of a teenage boy losing a playground fight then bouncing around after his opponent has left yelling he actually won.

    Heard of sportsmanship, professional integrity and SELF respect?

    Roylers idea of self respect is not tapping.

    Uh.... the match was won with ground fighting.

    If you watch the whole fight, you might see the uncounted number of leg kicks and, I think, two full kicks to Royler's head. By the time Sak took him down, there wasn't much left in Royler. Everything Sak wanted to do got through the non-existent defences.

    But Gracie claims Sak didn't win...:rolleyes:

    Oh wait... Sakuraba wins most of his fights by submission. Sign me back up for BJJ.
