To be honest this fight will show us how much Torres' new training regime is working. Johnson is probably a top 10 guy and his style is well rounded and relentless (his fight with Brad Pickett would have won FOTN on 99% of cards, shame it was on the same card as KZ/Garcia 1).

You are stepping dangerously close to making your opinion on DC useless. I say that because im starting to think that the man can be caught eating babies and you will defend him. Just like few others select members and their Fav fighter. Jon Jones, Machida... etc.

He sure as hell isn't done. He might not become a champion anymore, or even a serious contender but done? No way.

And once again the rules dictate that the worst fighter wins...

McCall, Faber, Aldo, Nate, Nick, Lyoto, TBD, Hunt
Forever hanging in Anderson Silva nuts

The worse fighter doesn't score all of the significant strikes and takedowns and win riding time and passes. It is alright to want your guy to win but you belittle Torres by downplaying how well Mighty Mouse fought and how skilled he is.

This is still Mixed Martial Arts isn't it?

Or am I in the wrong Forum today?



Cause I can not remember joining a Forum were a hugging contest and submission escape contests are being debated.

You know better osmium..

He only had 1 submission escape he had a lot of submission defenses you have to actually have a submission locked up for it to be escaped. Which is why Torres lost submissions that don't get locked in don't score just like punches that don't connect aren't supposed to score.

So we agree that the entire scoring system is complete rubbish?

Thats all!
