But I really dont agree with it being a "furious pace". Sorry I guess my expectations were too high and i realize not everyone has amazing cardio but meh... yeah im done.
Sorry just realised you what you said about being inexperienced and dude thats BS. I have a purple Belt 2nd degree in Ishinryu Karate and a Green belt 1st degree in Judo and have done more than my fair of sparring in the dojo. To call me inexperienced is not cool because i wasnt attacking you at all it was just my opinion. Ive seen nearly every UFC (leaving out some of the ones between 14 and 30) and enough prides to know how the game rolls. Dont call me inexperienced because my opinion differs from you. ok good your guy one thats nice but War Machine could have one the decision and id still think it was a bad performance by both guys because i didnt see much displayed other than sub-par GNT (Ground and tap, yes i take crdit for that because he was barely tapping War Machine with those tiny punches) and a very sad mental game by War. Fact is these are supposed to be fighters and they need to be prepared for the fight now come in and give it stuff like this.
Now I will say that Speers showed ALOT OF HEART. but unfortunately heart cannot always win the war because it was obvious he needs more experience. Yes he may be great once he gets in more fights but right now he has the will but not the skill. Sorry for kind of freakin out but its annoying when im called inexperienced when it was unprovoked and you dont even know me. Its my opinion, if you dont agree great awsome leave it at that and i respect it but yeah...ok NOW im done but no hard feelings im not gonna be gay and neg rep or anything so yeah. Peace
Well I do think your expectations are high then...sorry about saying your inexperienced....I just know for a fact that when I wrestled and when I grapple today, when I'm going full steam, it really doesn't take long to gas, when your fighting for your life or so it seems at times.
One thing I think you've failed to acknowledge is how damage effects your cardio. Ever had your neck grinded and yanked on for 60 seconds or so, taking really small, hot breaths, gasping for air in between...try that for about 30 seconds with someone trying to choke you and I think you'll quickly realize that it is VERY hard to recover from. All of your muscles that your trying to use prying off arms and getting in position have been greatly reduced of oxygen. Lactic acid buildup is huge, and you can't even lift your arms. My very first wrestling match back oh, 7 years ago, I fought a guy and literally gassed in about 50 seconds. I trained for about 2 hours / 5 days a week for about 3 weeks prior....I realize now that that is chicken shit compared to what these guys go through, but hey, I was just a grade 9 kid...
I guess all I can say is cut the guy some slack...
