What happened to Kang?
 
He looked great in the first round, then after those 2 takedowns and the ground and pound in rnd 2, he wilted. Not only that, but he was laying on the canvas for a long period of time afterward. Was it a conditioning issue? Did one of those takedowns really hurt him?

It sucks to see this guy put on awesome performances but always coming up short. He's so skilled but just hasn't been able to put it together in the UFC. I could see him getting dropped if he loses one more.

I dont know what was going on, it looked like he might have blown his load in the first. This isnt the first time he has started out a fight great and then lost it. He looked great against Mousasi and Akiyama up until those fights ended. I hope he gets another fight in the UFC.

Kang couldnt hang.....

Bisping looked good, but Kang looked like hell. And it's obvious he hasn't figured out the Octagon yet.

he looked like he was gassed and had nothing left in him no more.

To be honest I was really confused by this fight. He looked okay in the first round, sure he had Bisping down for the whole round, but he never really did anything with it. He kept going for transitions, but never really tried to hit him in between. I was more impressed by Bisping in this round.

And in the second round, I just didn't get how it ended. Bisping's punches looked as weak as Jake Shields. He had some decent punches land from standing in Kang's guard, but ALL the punches and that terrible knee at the end when Kang wilted, it just didn't add up as to why Kang would give up over those. It just seemed like Kang literally just gave up, even without being in any real danger.

I noticed the same thing at first, but I wasn't sure if it was just my inner self being pissed that Bisping won. It looked like Kang just pussed out. :confused02:

I think Kang just assumed he would easily win any ground game and never felt any need to pull guard and hold Bisping close. It was like he kept trying to use his feet just to push Bisping off and maybe throw for an armbar/triangle once. I just think he under-estimated Bispings overall aggression on the ground.

he looked like a fish out of water on the ground I mean he did't even attempted to use a guard he was just flopping around making it easy for bisping to capitalize.

That's how I felt. I didn't think Kang was in any danger of being finished in this fight, but something happened and he gassed/got rocked badly and didn't want/couldn't defend himself properly. It's like Bob Sapp killed Kang and transferred his own Brain into Kang's body.
