I always think of the fights that should have been on that FOX card instead. Obviously no way to know how they'd turn out until after the fact, but personally I think that a fight like Shogun / Hendo would have been awesome, and would prove to more casual fans that you don't need a flashy highlight reel finish to make a fight interesting.

I guess also adding to the OP with this follow up question for all. When fighters mention injuries post fight, do you automatically take it as excuse making every time? Or have you found some actually sincere while others you find more of just throwing out an excuse.

If so, what fighters do you generally feel are the 'excuse' makers and which do you find are just speaking sincere for whatever their reason is, be it fan uproar on a shoddy performance or something similar that would deem a reason.

I don't care that much. No fighter enters the cage 100% healthy, and for me, being a good fighter is not only about the success during those 15-25 minutes on one particular day. Training is part of the fight, so if a fighter gets injured in training he did a mistake. It's basically the same as doing a mistake during the actual fight. The fighter with the least mistakes and best output wins, simple as that. If a fighter thinks he has to train so hard against a specific opponent that he raises the risk of injury and then injures himself, he got beaten by the opponent's image in his head. That's part of the game. It's just like taking risks in the actual fight.

So going injured into the fight is as much an excuse as not raising his hands in the fight and getting caught.

As long as the injury is legit and we can have proof of it, then by all means. I don't enjoy hearing Tito and Mike Tyson ramble on about broken backs and cracked skulls, however.

As long as the fighter doesn't use it as a cop out for while he lost I don't care.... The bottom line is he/she still choose to get in the octagon with the injury in the first place.

BTW...With Shady Keith Kizer running the show. I think a fighter could enter the ring with on crutches sometimes.

Tyson had more problems than a broken back or a cracked skull.
