    Oh I thought Cerrone knocked him down, not that Yancy slipped. That makes more sense so it makes no sense still.

    I'm not a fan of these mid-fight hugs.

    Meh...you don't need to do that during the fight though...that was too much. But good fight.

    That wasn't sportsmanship, more some form of molestation...

    Not at all. Hugging etc during the fight is disrespectful to the competitive spirit. Reminded be of Barry v Cro Cop. Hate that shit, it makes me cringe.

    Too much. Hug and high five before and after the bell rings. Not during a competition where the goal is to inflict pain on each other.

    I feel Yancys respect for Cerrone could have cost him a little that fight (psychologically)

    Reminds me almost of Barry vs Cro Cop

    Cerrone uses the hugging and friendship as a form of mental combat. Go back and re-watch Matt Brown/Cerrone, at the beginning of the 3rd we get a hug followed shortly after by a KO.

    It's just a tactic.​

    Lol we get it guys, you're all super tough alphas. They took 3 seconds to show a moment of respect, god forbid you lose your boner over that.
