Someone agrees with me.

I wouldn't exactly call that guillotine a lucky submission. If you leave you neck out there that much, he deserved to get choked out in my opinion. I mean really, how many people lose by guillotine anymore? Not many

I think that Xavier guy was cut right after the Mcfedries loss too.

Not really that sad. I was excited he was coming to the UFC, but he looked so mediocre in his fights that I'm kind of glad he's going. He is giving asian fighters a bad name.

Plus, he was doing fine against Bisping in round 1, and then he simply stopped giving a sh**. Have a good time somewhere else and stop wasting space on the main card.

I was excited when Kang came to the UFC and I thought he could do some really good things but when I saw him get subbed with a guillotine by Alan Belcher I gave up any hope I had. He's been in a funk for awhile now. It's like Mirko in a way for some reason they just don't have it anymore.

i like kang, if the ufc keeps cutting some of its talent like this, strikeforce is slowly gonna get better and better.

I would agree with you, except for the fact that Kang has done this quite a bit before. Part of winning means not losing your concentration at crucial moments, even against lesser fighters. For example GSP proved the first Serra fight was a fluke with every fight after, but Kang has had a number of fights he was winning handily early, then lost, not just one.

He was beating Mousasi until he got submitted, same with Belcher, and there were a couple others, before Bisping. The guy has the talent to be a top level fighter, but he just doesn't seem to have the mental toughness. You can't fight part of a fight or part of a round, you have to be your best all the time if you want to play in the big leagues.

That said I think he should have gotten one more fight, but like I said, he has shown a pattern that seems to indicate a lack of some kind of focus, so I don't have too much sympathy.
