It isn't an excuse it is a proper breakdown of what happened in a fight.

Wandy can't do that to Akiyama they are basically the same height and size so you can't use what Belcher did as a reason for why Wandy will win. That is equivalent to saying Kongo would beat Mir because Brock took him down and GNPed him out. Fighters have different physical and technical tools.

Again your WRONG...he didn't clearly win that fight and there was chatter about it for days following the event, he said himself he wasn't happy with the performance and when he was announced the winner people booed.

You dont know me...DO NOT.....proceed to try and tell me my knowledge of combat sports....I've been watching and more importantly practicing since I was 6 yrs old....and also that logic(if you want to call it that) is totally irrelevant.....I agree with the crowd that thought he lost so I dont know combat sports....sorrt just wanted you to hear yourself...

I find it funny you need to comment..."it isn't an excuse"....yes...it is!!!!

The fact that the fight was a split decision and you try to tell me he clearly won is stupid, NOT to mention shows your clear bias for Sexy.....Get over it and call someone out that didn't watch that fight ten times and break it down on the forum already!!!! I have no bias against him.....he didn't really win the fight IMO, and a large part of the crowds, plus Rogan was like tough loss coulda gone either way......really close dude!!!! Again...

You do know that Wanderlei Silva has a Black Belt in BJJ right??? So he doesn't have to stand the whole time with Akiyama....just wanted to check.......Wandy will win this fight, thats all Im saying....LOL you think Akiyama will k/o Wandy....

No more time for you, I have better things to do....Be well
