ďI donít know why I didnít take him down more. Thatís the one thing I have been thinking about over and over. I should have taken him down more like in the first round. That was the game plan. My weapon is ground and poundÖI donít follow what people say in the media, all I can say is I didnít follow the game plan that we put together. Duff wants me to perform at the level he knows Iím capable of. Iím glad I have a trainer that wonít accept that performance and I respect him for speaking the truth. Duff didnít do anything wrong.Ē
-Matt ďThe HammerĒ Hamill responds to the comments made by his trainer Duff Holmes who vented his frustration and bewilderment regarding the gameplan that his fighter executed against Rich Franklin back at UFC 88: ďBreakthrough.Ē Hamill was finished in the third round via technical knockout after essentially going toe-to-toe with the former middleweight champion for most of the entire fight despite his superior edge in the wrestling department. And when he did attempt takedowns he could not finish them Ö Hamill appeared to be content just holding an ankle rather than driving Franklin into the cage or using it somehow to get ďAceĒ to the floor.

I think it was GSP that said something along the lines of, "you have a game plan, but once you get into the octagon, you forget everything."

I been noticing wrestlers latley trying to stand, because they really dont want to be labeled a "pure wrestler"
but its there only optins are that, stick your best assets, or become well rounded.

youd think that once he started getting hit, he'd just resort to the basics.

but good for him, he showed some class and has a good attitude

Matt's all class but I still think Duff is a double-D Douche bag for throwing Hamill under the bus with his comments. Just take the high road and say "The fight didn't go the way we wanted or anticipated." and leave it at that.
