Sonnen was finished twice, but is it all that bad to commend him for doing what literally no one else has even been able to fathom doing? Heck, I even give Carlos Condit credit for being the only person willing to actually engage GSP off of his back.
Plenty of people care. Hence why we're talking about it. If you don't care, then why get involved? The idea that we can't give someone credit or discuss a fighter's performance even in loss is a bit dense.
