And Td attempts are not an option since Hamil is alot better than him on the ground.
SO to all of you saying Bisping was running a marathon or w/e, think about it first. Would you fight to get koed or pick your shots and win?
Now i'm not saying he should've won, but saying that running away was one of the only options he had not to risk to much.
No Sorry I stand by what I said- he ran and that is plain chicken in a match and of all the things that day it deserved to be booed. At least he didn't holler 'Momma!'
I boxed and kickboxed in my younger days, and lost some matches, but never ran or stopped trying to win because of it. You can circle back and away and pick counter-shots there you are right; and that is a far cry away from what Bisping did. Bisping looked like he was the roadrunner in that same cartoon.
Instead of running form the TD's he should have learned sprawls, like other strikers have.
