Isn't that the fight where Kerr double leg picked him and when he slamed him he hit his head on the ground and knocked himself out?

mark kerr gets boo'ed because he is NOT entertaining.

He was boo'ed at multiple fights for just laying on top of people.

I dont like this fighter, because of his lack of fighting, and more of lay and pray even when he has a dominant position.

Mark Kerr is amazing, I seriously don't see why anyone would boo him. Most of the fans just want to see a brutal KO, seriously. That's all they want to see is someone getting knocked the **** out. But with Kerr he's going to take you down, and just ground and pound the living shit out of you. Kerr is one of my favourites and I can't wait for his comeback in November with IFL against Mike Whitehead, I think Kerr can take him and get the win.

maybe he just got bored his last few fights, he said before the herring fight he lost the drive to fight, and he wanted to see if he still felt that drive, he ended up being boo'ed the whole fight.

I would say he lost that drive, maybe he will come back better then ever, but as it stand, i still say he is boring and just lays on yop of people, like he did to heath for 2 rounds, then whent he ref finally stood them up herring took him down and kneed him in the head time and time again till the fight was stopped, that was pure action. Heath-action, Kerr-No action

Good documentary about kerr

If anyone wants to see a good film and see what really happened to Mark Kerr "Smashing Machine" is a good documentary. I dont really like movies like that but this shows how he started to mess up his life and career. i just saw it one day at blockbuster saw it was about him and took it home very good documentary if you like MMA

Its not hard to see why he lost his drive to fight if you see the documentary that was made of him
not sure what your point is here.

if you loose your drive to fight then dont fight, it only makes you look worse and you get boo'ed.

Im not saying he didnt have a good reason but come on, i dont need to see some documentery, he lost his drive plain and simple and it makes for a boring fighter.
