    Default Wineland: Stoppage was bull$#!@

    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...page-was-bull/

    Wineland has asked at post fight press conference if the stoppage was early.

    "Personal opinion, I think bulls---," said Wineland forcefully. "He caught me with a great kick. I was by no means out - I was on my way back up. But you know the referees have their own discretion, and that’s what he felt was the right call.

    “My hat’s off to Renan. It was a good kick.”
    UFC president Dana White who does not hesitate when he sees poor officiating, simly pointed out that there are inherently calls in reffing that are difficult, and that the call was solid.

    "It’s one of those tough calls," said White. "Trust me, I don’t like when a fight is stopped and a guy jumps right back up. But you know, he got blasted with that kick. And that’s a nasty kick that knocks people out and he looked wobbly even when he got up. It’s just one of those tough ones.

    “If I thought it was, I’d be smashing the ref. But that was a tough one.”


    UFC boss thinks Renan Barao deserves more respect; interim champ doesn't care
    http://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2013/0...mp-doesnt-care
    "I'm not out for recognition," Barao told MMAjunkie.com following his knockout win over Eddie Wineland (20-9-1 MMA, 2-3 UFC) at UFC 165. "That's not my job, it's in God's hands being recognized or not. I'm a fighter, I like what I'm doing, and the recognition is not up to me."

    Despite the fact Barao (31-1 MMA, 6-0 UFC) is undefeated in the UFC and is the owner of an incredible 31-fight winning streak, some, including UFC president Dana White, feel the Brazilian doesn't get the credit he deserves.

    "You know how hard it is to go eight years undefeated?" White asked. "Seriously, think about that. He doesn't get enough credit for the record he has and what this guy is capable of doing, and it's not just like he's undefeated and the goes to decision and outpoints you. This dude f---ing destroys you."

    Barao knocked out Wineland in the co-main event of Saturday night's UFC 165 event in Toronto, a victory that marked his second successful interim title defense.

    Following the win, it is expected that Barao will next face Dominick Cruz (19-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC), who holds the UFC bantamweight title but has been sidelined for nearly two years due to injury.

    Viewers of the sport are eager to see that matchup as it would determine once and for all who is the best 135-pound fighter in the world, but Barao said he doesn't care who he faces next because he already feels the status of the division's top fighter belongs to him.

    "I consider myself the champion," Barao said through an interpreter. "I'm just waiting for the UFC to make it official and give me the belt.

    "I fight anywhere, anyone. I'm just here doing my job and training hard everyday, so I just want to fight."

    UFC officials are targeting a return to the octagon for Cruz in early 2014. However, White has stated repeatedly in recent weeks that if "The Dominator" is unable to compete by the expected return date, the UFC will have to seek alternative options.

    And even though the nature of Barao's victory left many to believe he is truly the No. 1 fighter in the division, White said he is going to take some time before making any hasty decisions.

    "I think what makes sense is to wait and see what happens with Cruz and do the Cruz fight next," White said when asked who could be next for Barao. "So we'll see what happens with Cruz. We'll go from there, and if he can't fight we'll do something else."

    Cruz should have been stripped long ago. It's not as if he is a long time UFC champion. I don't comprehend how much leeway he has been given.

    Fully and completely agree. Cruz is not the champion and I was a little perturbed by Hominick saying he should not be stripped because he may be coming back soon. As I recall he has been in the "may be coming back" phase for a while now.

    Barao is a beast, he looked fantastic at the weigh ins and Wineland is a tough guy to fight.

    I dunno, he was pretty turtled, I know it was a championship fight, but I hate seeing guys take needless amounts of more damage...

    ^^^Based on that gif it looks early. Just a couple landed, a rematch down the road with these guys would be nice to see.

    Stoppage was bullshit. He was knocked down and Barao jumped on him quick pushing his head into the mat. He didn't even look all that rocked to me. Wasn't given a chance to recover.

    This clearly shows Wineland turtling up.. HE WAS OUT, NO QUESTION!

    No he wasn't out, plenty of guys turtle in that position to protect themselves from punches, then roll into guard or something else. The ref reacted based on how the kick looked. I think it knocked him more off balance than hurt him but the follow up punches sealed the illusion. That being said I'm not sure the fight wouldn't have ended in the same fashion had he been allowed a chance to recover. Barao is a monster and the True 135 lb champ, Cruz could possibly win a B.S decision if he runs and pokes, but I don't think he's fast enough to get away with that shit the way Barao attacks. But yeah it was an early stoppage, but I can't blame the ref for being fooled. It seems plenty of fans still are....

If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee

    It was early indeed, but not at all the worst stoppage we have seen.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    White: Barao is closest thing to Floyd Mayweather in MMA
