he got eyepoked twice really bad. fight should be a NC
He has ok striking good enough to make his grappling work. Yet he chose to strike too much vs a guy who hits like a fucking truck. Bad game plan, plus his karate stance chin up and getting eye poked didn't help much
He thought it was the dessert.
Dolce stands for "sweet" in Italian.
Damn right, and He'd still be champ if he didn't fight Bisping in the U.K.
Meh. He lost three rounds, easily. If it was PRIDE scoring he would have won because he definitely hurt Bisping a lot more than Bisping hurt him, but with the scoring criteria in place Bisping won.
Love your style by the way. And I think 'Hick Diaz' is hilarious, even though I totally understand why you don't dig it.
You can't be timid if you use punches; in many cases, the most reliable method of making yourself safe after throwing is to keep moving in and smother the opponents counterattack with clinching. Trying to reverse direction after moving yourself into critical range just puts you on the backfoot and out of balance to respond, like with Rockhold vs Bisping, or Thompson vs Woodley.
Andre Ward and Floyd Mayweather are both highly skillful at this tactic and good case studies for getting inside.
