It would probably be best for George to hang them up after this he was getting dropped by basically everything that landed his chin is worse than Chuck's was when he retired.
He wasn't out boxing Pearson and he isn't really a solid boxer. He only really knows how to throw a jab. A jab which Pearson continually countered with relative ease.

You also said that Donald Cerrone was out striking Nate Diaz. You're obviously heavily biased towards/against certain fighters, so much so that it completely clouds your judgement during actual fights.
