    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Crocop didn't want to be in that fight from the beginning. And that nut shot was totally on purpose.

    Santos is my boy, I totally called that fight.

    WTF was wrong with Hermes Franca? He looked like ****!

    Isn't he a BJJ black belt? Instead he chose to Stand and Wang. Which, I am getting sick of all these grapplers doing. Play to your strengths, boys!

    Hermes has multiple KO wins and outstruck five of his last six opponents. Moreover, he's not nearly as good a wrestler as Griffin so shooting takedowns on him wouldn't be a very successful tactic.

    Hermes looked slugish and kind of out of shape, which is a problem with him every so often.

    Plus his hair was ridiculous

    Wait, that was his hair?

    I thought he scalped Grimace and was keeping it as a trophy.

    My wife thought he mugged a little old lady for her wig.

The years caught up to me, I’ve been worn out…. [Junior dos Santos] won that fight and would have won it by decision. Simply put, he is younger, more hungry, more aggressive. He wanted to win a lot more…. The mat was slippery like glass. I almost fell down trying to do the left high kick. But I’m not looking for an alibi. This was not the performance the public would pay for. I don’t feel the hunger anymore. I started playing it safe, I’m not ready to take risks. I would like to thank everybody that supported me and stood by me and everyone who helped me to prepare for this fight. I’ve been living a military life for 20 years now. Getting up at 6 a.m. and having physically challenging task up to 8 p.m. I want a normal life. I’m entering a cage and thinking about fishing in Privlaka. You can’t win that way. Maybe I should’ve quit after I won the open weight grand prix.”

    I thought his eye poke against Mostapha Al'Turk was also on purpose.
