but i really wanna know is why dude was so afraid to initiate the ground game against ben.
The fight was over. Herb Dean called the fight, after asking Dan a couple times. Then for some reason, he asked one more time and restarted the fight. I have to say I like Ben's personality. I think he doesn't care if Dan's a freakin workhorse. He didn't seem intimidated, and brought the fight. His cockiness, which I didn't find to be excessive, was well justified, IMO.

Thanks guys, I know what I saw and heard. There are always people who say your crazy and all that. When a fighter stops the fight like that its over. I think the judges knew he quit.

I thought he quit too, and was quite shocked when Dana gave him the 5000 bonus. You could tell he said he wanted to stop when Dean asked him, it was kind of subliminal actually

I don't know why everyone likes Dan. Dan is the cocky one, he goes to the bathroom to pump his muscles in front of the mirror to see himself buff 10 times during training. Also anyone notice Dan would pound knuckles with Ben at the start of the fight and he would immediately try and sneak a punch on him afterwards, that's pretty petty if you ask me. Also he didn't want to let him up to his feet and would try to sneak in a punch while Dan was getting to his feet. IMO Dan is a dick.

I aggree, especially about the part where he tried to sneak in some punches a split second after him and Ben touched gloves. Was really cheap if you ask me

Good point, I think Dan has a few loose screws (same for his wife)they must make a good couple!
Dan did play a little cheap, I thought I heard Matt Serra yell out to Ben that if thats the way Dan wants to play let him have it, this was right after a cheap shot during the attempted knucke touch by Ben. I think Dan was just so focused on winning the fight that he was oblivious to anything else around him including direction from Hughes.
His bathroom incident was classic!

You can tell why he gets up so early to go running, it's practice for running away in the ring.

He quit and his wife is a nutbag.

Vain much? Seriously, he even had his shorts down while he was checkin himself out. At first, I was like, oh, he's just pissin all the time. I have had to leave training to piss 3 times or so per class because I drink so much water, but then they showed him on camera. Doesn't he know he's on camera??

Yeah, when Dan didn't touch gloves, Serra yelled, "he doesn't wanna play like that!" I bet Dan's nerves were a factor and maybe just totally wasn't thinking. It was his second fight of his MMA career, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt on that one.
