I think you meant to say, that it's a reason, not an excuse.

A reason is simply that, a reason. An excuse tries to provide sound justification for an action that makes said action ok.

BTW, I agree with you

C.B. is cocky but you know what that's fine.

I don't like his personality but anyone who ignores his potential is blind.

Also how is he a Lay and Prayer. Against Amir he spent a lot of the fight trying to pass Amir's guard and in fact cost him self a win by trying to finish the fight to quickly when he had Amir's back.

Against Tim Creduer on the ground he had no options. He's not going to pass Tim's guard and if he tries he will probably get submitted so he took him down and threw some elbows.

Actually, you have to admit that he stalled a ton against Tim when he gassed. The ref was stupid for not standing the fight back up when CB was just standing over Tim waiting for him to come up so he could sneak in a shot instead of letting Tim back.

He also took Tim down a number of times and just laid on him so he could rest a bit. I know he wanted to win badly and it was another chance so I don't hate him for doing whatever he could to win, but he clearly lnp in the Tim fight.

He didn't lay and pray watch old UFC fights for Lay and Pray.

CB did stall when Tim was on his back. But it was less of his choice and more of the fact that Tim was going for leg locks and being in his guard was bad for him. However he was also losing the stand up.

Also when he was in Tim's guard he was throwing some elbows and doing his best to inflict damage.

I was not saying that he was doing that for the entire fight, but I distinctly remember several points in the fight where he would just go for the TD and just laid on top of Tim.

For example, I think he did that near the end of the 2nd round. He just took down Tim and just laid there until the round was over. But yeah, he stalled a shitload when Tim was on his back and he was just standing over him.

Yes but that's not Lay and Pray that's what all fighters do. They take guys down and rest. BJJ guys do it not only when they are on top but when they have guys in their guards.

I guess we have differently opinions on that matter then. Because he was "resting" a lot in the 3rd round.

True but it's not really Lay and Pray. I mean Lay and Pray is really when you just lie in guard.
