As much as everyone hated him, did you hear Lesnar say stuff like "I wasn't 100%", "I was doing fine until Cain caught me and I couldn't recover".
Do people like you actually bother reading the content within an article, or just read the headline and look at the pretty pictures? And just lol at the Lesnar example. Yea, forget him mentioning his diverticulitis as the reason for the downfall of his career after the Alistair Overeem fight. Let's just casually ignore that and bash a Diaz brother.

To me, Nate seems like a whining baby saying this.


one of Nate's biggest fans.

What a cry baby bitch. Never watching a Cro Cop fight again. Hope he gets cancer of the AIDS and dies.

The unfortunate truth is that Benson would be able to beat Nate probably 9 times out of every 10 fights. He's too physically strong, he can stay on the outside, land leg kicks and then come inside and control Nate in the clinch. I can't see a way Nate would have beaten Benson without the eye punc.

Benson never let Nate find his rhythm and after watching the fight I think Benson is Nate's worst style matchup in the division.

Reminds me a little bit of the Velasquez/Bigfoot fight when Silva said he couldn't see because he had too much blood in his eyes after Cain's onslaught.

I don't think either guy was trying to make an excuse.

Those leg kicks were fantastic, almost as good as when Nate taunted Bendo and got punched in the face.

I don't see it as an excuse. "The guy punched me in the eye. I lost." is how it reads to me. Accepted.
