Donosaur: Exposing a hole in ones game and taking someone down is fine, but what you try to do after there down counts with me. I enjoy a good ground battle, but hate a fighter avoiding agression for safety and clock eating just being on top.
Bingo! Folks just don't want to watch boring fights, whether on the ground or feet. Last weeks TUF was mainly ground fighting but it was a thriller. Schaub just layed and prayed.
Don't get me wrong, I don't blame a fighter for taking that route but if said fighter is the main event on a PPV I'm not going to plop down any money or go out to a bar to watch him. As good as Fitch is when his fight came up it was a bathroom or smoke break for me. And when a fighter plays that game he's gotta win! The second he loses he will get cut.
