    Turns out the groinshot he took from Belcher was worse than he made it look. He misunderstood the referee to say he only had 5 seconds to recover, instead of 5 minutes, and promptly went back into the fight, still hurt.

    I can just imagine his reaction on hearing 5 seconds..."Holy fuck, the UFC doesn't mess around!" :rofl:

    In addition, it appears he suffered a fractured orbital bone at some point during the fight.

    Props to him for fighting through it all. Looking forward to seeing him back in action.

    Damn I was wondering if he understood that when the referee held up 5 fingers. But that's impressive

    I know it's not a penalty if you hit a guy in the groin once, but does it still affect the judging?
    Maybe that's why he got a win

    So any detailed explanation of what a fighter goes through = excuses?

    Shitty attempt at humor denied.

    Akiyama was so casual the entire fight. Casually shaking off the ball shot, and casually checking his busted eye on the big screen after the first. Dude rocks, and I do think he won the fight, but by a tiny margin.

    oh noes, shot down by the humor police :wtc:


    the referee was PUSHING HIM AWAY telling him to take his time, Akiyama kept trying to charge forward. either he was fine, or an idiot for not having at least one person in his corner that knows the difference in english between "minutes" and "seconds."

    and it's BS about how "my eye got hurt and that's why i took so many leg kicks." belcher was pummeling that left leg all night, it wasn't just because his eye got fucked up.

    since it was a split decision and not a decisive victory for "sexyama" ( :ugh: ), i think he's making excuses why he didn't win more handily.
