The only reason I can come up with is he is not very bright.

I didn't know that, but they were talking about Hall. Troeng looks lackluster in his UFC fights so far, I think they are going to keep him around for another European card but if he loses I can't see the UFC holding on to him. I thought he would beat Smith though.

Tor always tries to take his oppoents down. It's his bread-and-butt strategy. And when you fight, you're first and foremost relyin on instincts. Tor did what his instincts told him.

This is the guy whom had no problems taking down Thales Leites (which went about as well as you'd expect) - I don't think Trevor Smith is going to change his mind.

Maybe he doesn't trust his chin.

Troeng's just an average fighter. Smith was easy money last night as the slight underdog American wrestler will usually eke out a decision over European wrestler.

I also agree with the poster above Tor doesn't seem like a fighter, to be honest. He doesn't have that aggression or killer instinct, that was evident on TUF 17 too.
