I blame the fighter and the coach for the error, but I also think it would have been a diffrent fight, b/c George was pretty shook up after the poke.
In any case I like Tommy Speer and been pulling for him to make the finals - I just didn't think it was going to happen. That being said he's going to have to bring everthing he's got on Saturday.
