    I think the term lay and pray is kinda funny, because what's the guy praying for? If he lands a takedown, and is on top 99% of the time, he is gonna win. There is nothing that is up in the air about it. I guess he could be praying that his opponent doesn't learn how to wrestle in between rounds, but that's about it.
    Lay and pray the ref doesn't stand the fighters up.

    It depends on how you score fights. Bisping was certainly busier, but rewatching it, I felt Kennedy was landing more effectively--as in a higher percentage of shots. Bisping seemed to whif on more strikes than Tim actually threw. So if you give points for being busy, wouldn't you have to give points for attempted takedowns? I dunno...that's the only way I could think he'd score it.

    Note: I gave the round to Bisping, but its not as egregious of an error as some of the crap I've seen.

    Ouch, look how many guys are making 8K to show. Lets say you fight 3 times a year and go 1-2, 32K to get permanent brain damage and you still have to pay costs out of that.

    8 thousand dollars. Ouch.


    And it is such horseshit that Bisping gets paid so much. Over 3x more than the guy who beats him.

    I wish it worked to where whoever won their fight won the most money no matter who it is.

    That wouldn't make sense from a business standpoint. The pay scale for this event seems about right to me.
