Bloody forums. You really do have to spell everything out don't ya!
I was just saying I like oldies sarcasm. Your thumbs up was enough to do the trick, don't worry.

I think he was trying to get in for a break but never had the opportunity. It kinda seemed like he was about to step in at one point but then Roy threw another punch.

Ya Nelson's confidence built very quickly in that fight. Matt was outclassed in the striking department.

Yah same here. You know he was going to stop it, but he saw that they were in the heat of battle. Multiple times it looked like he wanted to step in. That's a hard one to call. I also noticed that Mitrione was hesitant because he knew he was unguarded. Mentally that makes you freeze and that's it. Not that it made a difference. Nelson is a legitimate fighter. Only been TKOed by Arlovski I think.

Kinda reminds me of the time when Tyson got knocked down by Buster Douglas. He spent at least three seconds trying to put his own mouth piece back in. FAWK! That would be the beginning of his precipitous fall. He was 42:1.

Vera fell victim to the missing mouthpiece phenomenon vs Shogun too.

I wonder if that uppercut broke some of Mitrione's teeth without the mouthpiece to protect them.
