Dave herman vs big nog

did anyone else think this fight was very strange ?! I`ve seen Dave hermans fight against Stefan struve and Roy nelson live .. he won the 1st round pretty easily against stefan struve and was showing some decent striking .. and he was winning the fight against Roy Nelson until he got clipped by a huge over hand right and got Tko`d a bit of an early stoppage in that fight though as if the referee would of gave him maybe a second or 2 more to recover he would of been back as he did not seem daze at all after the stoppage .. and he was pissed off and arguing with the referee lol

now with his fight against Big Nog in Rio Brazil he literally did nothing except stick his hand out like a dumb ass while throwing NO STRIKES except leg kicks .. he even got on top of big nog in the 1st round and almost had full mount be he that that go and had a goofy weird smile on his face .. in the 2nd round he did the same thing with sticking his hand out and LITERALLY doing nothing with it and hardly throwing any leg kicks or strikes at all .. showed no urgency for a guy that had to win this fight or it would of been his 3rd loss in a row . and after he got tapped out all he did was smile and had this goofy looking smirk on his face .

I am not trying to be a conspiracy theorist but did anyone else think he was payed off ?! It happens in Boxing all the time .. but usually it`s the judges getting payed off there lol

I didn't see a difference. He's not that good, despite his record.

Herman walked into a very good and experienced fighter. Nog had his number, end of story.

Herman is highly overrated.

Fight was rigged. Dave Herman is obviously too good of a fighter to lose to Big Nog. The UFC is probably going to cut him now just because they cant handle his awesome. Just like Duffee, who also obviously threw the fight against Overeem.

if it walks like a duck.....his goal was to not win that fight. A mission he accomplished but one he certainly won't win an Oscar for.

I am the foremost authority on my opinion.

LOL Jon Jones uses his reach very well and is very creative with his strikes and everything .. this guy just put his hand out like an idiot and did NOTHING except wait to get hit and an occasional leg kick .. the fight was very strange .. at first when I saw it live I thought I was being a little paranoid but after rewatching it I am even more convinced .. I am not saying big nog can`t beat Dave Herman .. but dam Dave Herman just looked beyond terrible .. I don`t know while watching it I just got a very strange vibe from that fight
