    What the heck did i just watch??? Maybe 1 punch was illegal the rest were legal. This guy took Advantage as soon as he heard the ref say " don't punch him in the back of the head". this guy knew he had no other way out and was purposely turning his head for Eddie to hit him in the back of the head.

    Martial, by definition, means at a time of war. So at a time of war, the Gracies lay on their backs, like porn stars, you call that fighting? If I wanted to watch hugging championships, I would sooner watch an episode of the Care Bears. No disrespect intended, to the Care Bears,.

    it's because half the gracies couldnt fight, they relied on cheap shots and dirty tactics to win anything, i have never liked that main gracie dude i forgot his name, lol the one thats a huge bastard and doesnt let go of submissions even when someone taps out, he keeps cranking on them like a piece of shit, hate that crap, ive always hated arrogant piece of shit fighters who think they are all that, but it's just they can only do one thing and if you dont let them do it, they get fucking wrecked

    This notion that people who train under the gracie's are all good is flat out false. Ninety percent of all students have garbage records in whatever martial arts fighting they chose to do. lol at people who beef up the diaz brothers, both have garbage records and neither have a clue how to do any kicks.

    Essentially, Royce cheated but Sakuraba wasn't declared the winner after the fact. Sounds like corruption in MMA, just like in boxing.
