barboza was obviously on an emotional high and the fight was important to him, he felt like thanking god in the middle of the octagon, rather i agree with it or not im just saying that i dont think he did that in the way you guys are seeing it.
i must admit it looked a bit different on my laptop.

quite a few ppl had an issue with this if you look at the poll results.

i dont want to make it about one guy tho, i honestly just think its too much when the guy is lying there / injured.

i understand that he wouldnt have gone chasing lullo to his corner but he seemed to show no consideration for the guy he was next too and also seemed to turn his back on him and ignored him after his elongated religious ritual.

i think this proximity stuck in a lot of ppls minds as there is no way a celebrating fighter would be allowed that close to someone they just beat usually.

i dont want to nit pick as its silly when ppl spend days disecting a split second decision by some guy we dont know 100s/1000s of miles away (outside of the fight itself of course).

the practice itself is of course fair enough, i just dont think you should physically do it over a fallen opponent given the fact you are on your knees and literaly right in their face at the time.

i take that he didnt follow him to his corner but this is not the critical issue. the separation of fighters post fight should take presidence over the celebration habits of the victor and he should certainly not be alowed into the losers personal space to self initiate a religious or any other ritual.

i think the separation of fighters should prohibit this from happening.

again. barring a load of new stupidness (as oppose to answers that actually read the thread such as yours) thats my 2 pennies worth.

i dont like disagreeing with you but it did look different to me.

have a good thanks giving.

i understand and i actually dont like it when fighters start thanking god, i agree that he was doing it way too close, it was a weird sight but i really dont think he meant to do it that close to him, not in a negative way at least, i gave him a pass since barboza seemed to be just very emotional

im from brazil and we have a touhg life here, economy is booming but the majority of ppl here are very poor still and barboza is probably one of those ppl who had a tough life but still found a way to get to the UFC...something not easy to do, im guessing he was just so happy to have won and in such an impressive fashion that he didnt even think about the other guy

though i do think he should have done it away from him, but its hard to seperate fighters so fast, the guy was still obviously hurt and they shouldnt move him out of the octagon until they are sure there was nothing seriously wrong with his leg

so it wont always be easy to seperate them and the fighter who wins will rarley have the discipline to contain himself until the other fighter is out of the picture so only then he can celebrate, so even though i think it would be the nice thing to do i just dont see how it would be possible

i think we kind of have to deal with seeing this from time to time, though good thing its not something common...the way it happened in this fight at least
