Shit's changing.
I think Thompson shouldn't be allowed in the cage at all, regardless of who he's fighting. I know he's been in some wars but thats why he's at risk now because the guy has been beat damb near into retardation. I mean he's always looked goofy but each fight he looks worse lol.

Interesting how Smith told Lawler that he did not want the fight to stop but continually said "I can't see." Anyways, this was a very good article which cleared up a lot of things.

That's generally what has to be done when people draw wild conclusions from limited evidence.

That Lawler fight decision was BS. Even if he kept on saying he can't see, whats the harm in giving him the full 5 minutes to recover? If your stopping the fight because before his 5 minutes are up he hasn't recovered yet then isn't that totally defeating the purpose of 5 mins to recover anyway?

Like seeing that Thompson was still standing and defending himself? Yeah, totally limited evidence.

It is if you're going to conclude that the fight was rigged based on that.

Then what should we do? Stay quiet and don't say anything? Because I'm pretty sure no one in here has all the evidence, but everyone can draw his own conclusions based on what we have seen in that fight, and what I saw leads me to the conclusion that the ref was favoring Kimbo.

It seems like the interview itself gives you the commission's response to each of your questions.

It doesn't answer the question of whats the harm of giving him the full 5 minutes to recover and then asking him after his time to recover is up if he has recovered yet or not.
