Add to the fact that Gray got rocked (I believe it was in the third).


I'm also wondering why the hell Nate didn't throw many headkicks. He threw two I remember in the third, but in the first round when he had standing wrist control on Gray he should've launched one as it would've landed flush easily due to his hieght and the fact that he was holding Gray's hand down.

When one judge scored it 30-27 for Maynard, and I had it 30-27 for Diaz, I just knew it was going to be another horrible decision. This system NEEDS to go. Some say that the system they had in PRIDE was )potentially) biased and random, but I really don't remember such a bad decision in PRIDE at all.

Imagine what Penn does...
i think he could be the one to beat penn but he needs allot more practice. IDK who thinks he is ready now.

he seems strong enough to mussel BJ around and if randy can teach him how to use the dirty boxing clinch that would negate bj's jab. He can do it but wont be able to do it for a while.

Watch round 2 again. Nate is landing A LOT more than Nate and cleaner. At least double the amount. If anything I would score round 3 for Gray, but it was still a fairly equal round. It really depends on how you score slightly harder shots against jabs.

I think Nate was over concerned about being taken down (he said as much after the fight) and possibly outwrestled to a decision. Neither fighter wanted much to do with the ground, which is crazy, though probably more understandable on Grey's part (having been caught by Nate before). However, both fighters were too negative in their approach to the fight, both rejecting their respective strengths (Gray's Wrestling and Nate's BJJ). Nate's only real chance of finishing the fight, was with a submission or maybe the outside chance of a headkick. So he should definitely have thrown more kicks. At best he lands them and at worst he gets taken down, where he has his best chance of finishing the fight.
