That bothered the hell out of me. The guy comes in with a reputation for being a great striker, and he fucking sucks at it. His defense is piss poor, and he extends his lead hand making his jab and lead hook nearly useless, removing what should be a primary weapon of his. And since his hand is extended, he can't block anything on that side so every time Nogueira comes forward he clocks him.
Glad to see Nogueira win, and while Herman is a physical specimen, his style pretty much sucks and he's going to keep getting his head knocked around if he fights higher caliber HWs.
Loved the main card in general, and Silva put on a classic performance. Everyone is talking down about Bonnar but the guy has fought everybody, he came after Silva and tried to win, and he just couldn't really do anything. Silva's turning into a rope-a-dope guy as he gets older, I don't know how smart it is or how it will effect him alter in life but damn is it entertaining.
