Well from a standpoint that we all have... can we really say anything about it... from a professional standpoint it is in your best interest to protect the fighters.... HEY WHERE HAVE WE HEARD THAT BEFORE ONE FIGHT PREVIOUS TO THAT....
When Thompson first started dropping the punches and elbows on the wide open dome of kimbo.. they were a decent strength...literally could have ****ed him right up... now Elite XC is going for as much popularity as they could have in every event so the more they have a popular face + undefeated.. the better... some refs could have called that guaranteed on kimbo... there was little to no protection being shown... he didn't even move his head... didn't tuck into the body.. his arms were basically not moving with one being pinned down.
R.O.B.B.E.D **** elite xc man whenever they get a window of oppurtunity... they blow it ON NATIONAL TV
