Kimbo was put in a crucufix position the same move that kept BJ Penn from escaping Matt Hughes. Despite the punches doing barely any damage the fact remains they were unanswered shots and so the ref had to stop the fight.
I am disappointed Roy didnt bang with Kimbo but whatever everyone is there to get the "W".
I agree. Roy had a decision to make, stand up and risk losing and/or getting hurt or take it to the ground and have a safe and easy win. He might have some people hate on him but I never get why people expect the jiu jitsu guy to stand with the stand up fighter. Imo, those people should just watch kickboxing or boxing. Also, can anyone imagine the kind of hate Roy would get for LOSING to Kimbo via tko or decision for not taking it to the ground? He would lose all respect. Bottom line, people seem to just not like Roy and will find anyone reason to hate on the guy. Oh and who thinks he did Kimbo a favor by not pounding the hell out of him while he had him completely trapped?
