Maybe he was confused, I know I was when BJ was hurt. BJ is known for his ability to take punishment, that was the first time we've ever seen him really rocked. He was obviously being battered by GSP and Diaz but he never had that look on his face like he did against Rory like a light breeze would make him go down.

My first thought was "WTF, is he playing possum?" I honestly thought he might be faking it to draw Rory in and land a big shot. In retrospect that seems silly but live, at the time it was the first thing in my head, maybe it was the first thing in Macdonald's head too.

There are cases of fighters going easy on their opponents. Rory did not against BJ. He fought very poised and as he said, "if the knock out was there he'd go for it, but it wasn't."

Matt Hughes vs Royce.
Anderson Silva vs Thales Leites
Vitor Belfort vs Joe Charles (Old training partner and had a gentleman's agreement to grapple. Vitor won by armbar. I watched this fight live on PPV and was like, "this isn't how Vitor fights." But it also showed me that he had a Jiu Jitsu game many years later against the LHW title holder.)

Maybe Jose vs Faber towards the latter round.
