Def disappointed me... but I couldn't even tell I was upset about that aspect because I was too busy crying that Barnett lost.

MMA is funny...we may still get Barnett vs Werdum but not as the next match....the only guys I wanted to see Warmaster fight were Mir-Bigfoot-Werdum-Cain.....

The strikes Browne threw have been accepted as legal for a long time now. Fighters have thrown that same strike in the same position without drawing a foul numerous times. Every fighter knows the danger of that position and it's definitely something we've seen more and more fighters doing. It's very effective, and definitely 100% legal despite how the rules might appear to suggest otherwise.
I think his win over Gonzaga should have been changed to a DQ, but I had no problem with the strikes against Barnett. He seemed to be arcing the blows more. Either way, you make a very strong point.
