    That fight I felt bad for Dos Santos and hope he doesn't have any long term head injuries later in life. This is one of the rare times that it was hard for me to watch the fight because I felt terrible for what the fighter is enduring

    Chael cares about the well-being of JDS and his career. Another "Sonnen hates all Brazilians" myth busted.

    there mustve been a heavy price for those two back to back beatings. second one worse than the first. take a break and get some tune ups if he has to continue fighting

    Isn't it illegal for MMA fighter corners to throw the towel?

    I think so. It's the stupidest rule I've ever heard. But it effectively works because it counts as a disqualification.

    During the fight, yes, it would result in DQ.

    But if his corner stops the fight while they are in the break (BJ Penn vs. GSP like) it's ok.

    I didn't get to see this fight but from what I heard it sounds like Chael is mostly right.

    Lol, everyone is well aware that Chael plays to the camera and is very charismatic, but that doesn't mean everything he says is fluff.. Only ignorant people would think that. I highly doubt this was a vague attempt of some sort to win over a couple Brazilian fans.

    Parroting what Uncle Dana wants him to say, he must have his hand pretty far up Chaels arse.

    Agreed. It was painful to watch him get brutalized after he was done. Juniors has no give up in him, his corner should have known better.
