Well I meant cheap as in Marquardt went right in and started punching away while the other guy was trying to signal the ref over while still down, but eh.
I'm willing to bet you think Akiyama wasn't greasing against Sakuraba either.. He got checked before and after too, came up with nothing, then they looked at the pre-fight footage backstage and it turned out he was greased like a fricken pig.Shady my ass. Refs and docs checked Nate's legs before and after the fight, and there was nothing shady about it. Palhares tried to call Marquardt out simply because he got his sweaty legs out of a weak lock from Palhares. The guy should know better than to drop his guard when he's on the ground and his opponent is on his feet. End of story.
Did you not read my first post where I said Palhares made a mental mistake you slow prick?Call it whatever you want, call Marquardt out as a cheater if you want, Palhares was a moron even if Marquardt was greased. That hold was loose at best and Palhares should know better than to lay on his back and try to get the ref's attention with Marquardt freshly standing right next to him.
You might be jaded, but I'm gonna give Nate the benefit of the doubt here. That leg lock was weak at best from what I saw, and then backing that up with terrible judgment is just a bad decision.
Eh, it might diminish his win if true, but it was still great seeing him beat the shit out of Silva for basically 5 rounds. Now, the true controversy would have been if he'd won and not gotten choked out at the last minute, but as that didn't happen...this'll definitely affect their planned rematch for sure. Probably gonna see Okami now lose to Silva, since Okami isn't going to lose to Belfort...

Still doesn't change the fact he's a master of talking shit either in often humorous fashion. Seriously, calling out GSP and Shogun, then saying he'd slap Lesnar in the face and that Lesnar wouldn't do anything about it...this guy is nuts in a good way.
One can always hope can't they? I mean, no one gave him a chance against Barry and he did look sloppy, but he pulled out his first submission win in what, 5 years? More unexpected things have happened after all.My take is you're not seeing it even if he does end up fighting Mir.
Heard you can make it happen in the video game however... your best bet.
Not sure why you're saying it like Silva pulled the triangle choke in the 2nd round...Sonnen
Best chance Sonnen ever got and he blew it spectacularly.
I'm a big Cro Cop fan, but let's be realistic, Pride Cop Cop and the current Cro Cop are not the same. Sometimes we see the Pride Cro Cop, like when he pulled the axe kick against Barry, which was something not commonly, if at all, seen in the UFC. I wish the best of luck to Frank Mir, and to not get over-confident again, but from what I see, he's shit talking is limited in this fight.Also heard rumors that Cro Cop was injured and not fighting Mir...hope they aren't true, I wanna see the LHK on Mir.
EDIT: Josh Barnett's in Strikeforce. Who says the UFC has the best HW division? Fedor, Barnett, Bigfoot, Werdum, Overeem, Arlovksi...HELLL YEAH
His PRIDE record against good opponents is 1-3 (losses to Sakuraba, Overeem and Henderson with a win over Herring).Hell if you look at his past history in the UFC, he sucks, he was only decent in Pride.
