I swear if you make it to the UFC you'd be stupid to not grab shorts, poke eyes and hold fences.

Silva was nonstop fence grabbing earlier in the fight. It is just flat out dumb to not grab the fence or the shorts if it will help you.

Silva also grabbed the fence earlier... May not have been as obvious, but it happened.

Kim wasn't folding when he got hit, he kept going. He was getting hurt by the knee though.

Silva was fence grabbing in both rounds. Silva would have been on the ground shortly after he swarmed Stun Gun at the beginning of the second if he had not grabbed the fence. And we all know he wouldn't have gotten up till the bell.

Silva looked like he'd pace himself much better than in his previous fights. That he nonetheless gassed so quickly was really weird.

I just found it funny that Stun Gun finally unleashes the left hand he had buried deep in the depths of Korea as he's getting desperate and wants to stop getting hit in the face and body.


Im pretty sure the only reason he doesn't use it is because he doesnt like getting hit....ironic.

I'm not condemning Kim for it haha. Just pointing out that it happens all the damn time. If you Jose Aldo same thing. I feel like if you hold the fence or grab shorts or whatever and change where the fight was going and immeditatly turn around and knock a guy out there kind of needs to be a change. Bisping same thing.

If you prevent yourself from being taken to the ground, get a point taken but get to stay standing and get a KO you'd be stupid not to exploit the rules. Take all the points you want, if I stop you points don't matter.
