    ...underestimated their opponents and had their hands down.

    It's incredibly stupid to keep your hands down, especially in the first round when everyone is still explosive and dangerous.

    It is even more ridiculous when champions do it. I guess, being a champ makes people too overconfident in their abilities and consequently too reckless.

    But that's not only the failure of the fighters, it is also the failure of their coaches and teams who are ignoring this basic phenomenon of the human psychology.

    I have always hated people exaggerating the importance of hands high defense, especially in MMA with small gloves. Footwork and head movement are a lot more important.

    Luke was doing the classic "just-take-my-wallet-and-leave-me-alone" defense

    That's mma period. When bob arum ranted on mma, he was right. Besides the all fans being skinheads part.

    This is dumb, Robbie had a good guard, he went to parry a jab but it was a feint, you would have been knocked out dead because you would have squirmed the second tyrone moved.

    And Rafael Dos Anjos had his hands up well during rd 1 and still got KO'd

    Only MMA noobs obsess about hands up defense

    If Robbie had his hands up Tyron wouldve taken him down.

    Footwork and distance control > keeping hands up.

    That's what it looks like to me as well. He parried the jab feint, then tried to do the same with the followup right but it looks like he either misread the punch or screwed up the the timing on the attempted parry.

    Lawler didnt have his hands down out of carelessness or disrespect for Woodleys power, Tyron just threw a feint and he bit on it

    Dont put him in the same boat as Rockhold, Werdum, or Aldo

    You are only proving my point. Anderson Silva is one of the greatest strikers in MMA history.

    Looks dumb as hell to get KO's with his hands by his hips

    This didn't need to happen if he fought smart and didn't try to showboat

    Yeah, go tell Anderson Silva how stupid it was from him to fight his career like that, not preferring the hands high defense. Go tell that to all of the other GOAT combat sport strikers aswell who werent using hands high guard as their main defense.
