UFC 110 Post fight thoughts
Last nights UFC 110 card lived up to the hype. What a great night of fights this was. I had picked Bisping to win even, But I cheered for Wandy the fight. It was a great fight with both guys banging the whole time, But in the end the judges gave it to Silva and rightfully so. Go Wandy!
Cain and big Nog didn't turn out to be the war I thought it would be. Cain made short work of the legend with a big KO. The rest of the big boys should take notice Cain is not going anywhere.
Now bear with me cuz I'm about to go on a rant. Bonner was robbed last night.
Bonnar and Soszynski had engaged in two tightly contested rounds when an early exchange in the final frame saw the fighters clash heads. A gaping wound opened up on Bonnar's forehead, and referee John Sharp halted the contest on the advice of the cageside physician.
"It was a headbutt, and you know what the worst part is?" Bonnar asked in the post-fight press conference. "Take a close-up on this head. This cut is actually shaped like a 'K' for Krzysztof, so I now I've got to walk around with a scar in the shape of a 'K' on it.
"So yeah, I'm pissed off."
The bout was ruled a TKO as Sharp incorrectly determined that the laceration was caused from a legal strike.
This ref was awful from the start when Krzysztof was poked in the eye and made to just fight through it. Alot of people are saying it should have been ruled a NC.
That is not the case tho.
An appeal to the New South Wales Combat Sports Authority could result in a different ruling for Bonnar, as an inadvertent foul in the final round that leads directly to the end of the bout should be decided by the judges' scores through two rounds.
One more thing bothering me about this fight. At the end Krzysztof was wearing a brand of shirt called Skin.
I had never seen this brand on a fighter before. And the fact that Krzysztof is bald and covered in tattoos made me think skinhead.
I looked into the brand online. there are no hate messages on their site, But some of the shirts to have images of iron crosses.
I'm just saying the UFC should look into this. We cannot have hate groups advertising on the chests of pro fighters.
Also check out the pic of Krzysztof's eye at the post fight presser. OUCH
