Not bullshit. A lot of people gave Mark more props and respect based on how that fight finished.
The Tompkins bit was that his young (37), yet longtime friend and coach since he had gotten into the sport, died after the Aldo fight. All of the fighters under him had issues in their next fight, Mark's was the flash KZ knockout and those are hard to recover from.
