Yea, fight was terrible. I almost had to give it to the guy that lost, I mean, the guy that won, sure he out wrestled the hell out of the other guy but other than that, what did he do? Nothing? A weak few punches towards the end of the fight. I mean, it's great to control someone but I've never seen anyone get KO'ed by being "controlled" and "held down", nor have I ever seen anyone submitted by it, so how does that really mean anything in scoring? The best it does is put you in positions to win and considering someone was in the position to win the entire fight and didn't finish, that tells me a lot.
The other thing is that it appears submission attempts don't mean squat. They do damage, but the non-damaging "controlling" or "holding down" a fighter seem to score more points with judges? If someone has you in a submission attempt, bending your arm, cranking your neck, etc. that does damage! It freaking hurts and it stays with you through the fight, most of the time more than a punch would.
Sorry, just was thinking about how judges judge fights and started ranting.
Episode was kinda weird lol. Nothing really happened. Coaches are really laid back and friendly to each other. No drama. Previews didn't really show anyone being too crazy. Weird season.
Goodbye Mr. Burton
