    I think I did. Wow, maybe american crowds are finally getting educated enough to not boo during grappling!

    I was just waiting for his arm and/or shoulder to snap... Most peeps aren't foolish enough to remain stuck in that kind of hold for so long (ie tap out)...

    I was cringing when Stephen was explaining how he heard some tearing as he was torking harder and harder. I mean look at how incredibly strong Stephen is and you could see on his face he was pulling as hard as he can. Props to Irvin, because I would have screamed like a little bitch with my arm facing the opposite way it is made to go. He was actually trying to fight his way out of it, unlike Fickett. I don't care how hard that guillotine was, 6-8 seconds and he is tapping?!?! WTF! What a poor loss, he didn't even try fight out in any way.

  9. It was just 4 seconds. A gillotine when applied tightly is one of the hardest subs to get out of. We hardly see a good one these days but Drew just went right into it for Josh.

    Me too...damnit. But Stephan is a damn good fighter, despite the fact that he looks like he should be teaching a high school art class or something :hsugh:

    Careful with the cheering

    I was watching a UFC fight on Spike TV the other week and figured out that the cheering is "fake" for some of the fights. What peaked my suspicions was when Nick Diaz was fighting "someone" and there was all this cheering, but when I check out the crowd, there was no crowd. It must have been one of the first fights of the night that no one goes to, just like in boxing. After that I started listening closely to the crowd as I watched the fights and noticed the cheering didn't match the crowd for some fights.

    Now Bonner vs. Irvin, I think that cheering was real.
