technically, if you want to win a fight, you'll eventually want to punch your opponent in the face
hugging him against the fence is not exactly the same "sport" and if you go out, pick a fight, and start hugging the guy instead of punching him, people are gonna start wondering "what the?", you'll then eventually end up in a "Cher" music video or on "american idol"
Shamar wasn't fighting, he was hugging, and he obviously didn't control much as each and every TD attempt (and there were many) was stuffed (easily, should I say).
it was obvious he wanted the fight to go to the ground and it never, ever happened.
even tho he later told, in his pathetic, sad attempt to get to DW, he wanted to "show he could stand and trade", he barely showed he could stand and hug, but again, he'll have much more chance applying for a reforming of the village people.
Winners can find the means to win, losers only find excuses
