OK, you've lost 2 rounds, now don't change anything!

I sometimes wonder how honest the corner guys are with some of these fighters. For instance when Diego had clearly lost the first 2 rounds, did he know it? Did his corner say anything, like "Dude you're losing you have to submit or ko him." Becuase after 2 rounds, you come out in the 3rd and don't change anything? Do they not know they are losing? Do something, like I dunno, try? Or maybe they are telling them but it just isn't getting through, I realize that most fights are mostly a big blur.

Thoughts?

i think there's more to it then whats on the surface. Has Diego ever been behind after two rounds and was getting harsh out classed, Not that I can remember. Thast got to mess with your mind. Plus its hard to really get anything going when your behind and the other guy will not move forward.

people say either the world will end at 2012 or the aliens will finnally come back to us.....


i hope not cuz im writing a sci fi novel

I never knew that your opponent had the responsibility to come into your game. Diego can only blame himself, and his corner has to be ashamed of themselves.

Youre forgetting, after the 2nd round thier tired. Did you see Randy vs Tim? After the first round tim could walk straight, he knew he was losing, but couldnt do anything about it.

My thoughts exactly! I thought the fight plan should have changed after the first round...

10 jabs and walking slowly, sometimes backing up shouldn't really tire a fighter...-_-' thats just imo

Yea.. but getting punched in the face tires people out to. Plus sprawling and geting hit up against the cage. You think its nothing but it gets tiring after 6mins..

Maybe his corner did not tell him but he should have felt some urgency on his own, to lose his undefeated record in that manner just plain sucks but he and he alone should have fixed his gameplan after the first round IMO.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

maybe he had the wrong corner for the wrong sport...

Diego should've known better, it's under his belt and now he's gotta regroup.
