    Should have just faked the KO. Fight would've been called off--he could have even protested to no avail. Rematch money as champ+Salty Jones. No one the wiser.

    Of course Ariel would say that. Dude's the scum of the earth. The estrogenic, morally bankrupt slime of the MMA community.

    he was stupid not to. I respect WHY he didnt. But it was still a stupid choice.

    No way Anthony thought he could outpoint Jones and win after the foul, so take the DQ, go back and re-do your gameplan for the rematch.
    Does Anthony really know how long it's gonna take him now to get back to a title shot? At least 2 years.

    Chael probably could have won Silva II by DQ if he wanted to be that way.
    He said Silva's upper leg hit his face on the knee strike but he let it go.

    That's not how concussions work. They don't go away in a few minutes.

    Of course you wouldn't.

    Jones could test positive for every steroid known to man and then get knocked out in the first round and you'd still let him keep the belt if you could.

    Ariel see's it as dishonorable to throw an illegal technique at your opponent. Yet Ariel doesn't understand the honor in being honest.

    When asked by the ref if he could continue, Anthony answered "Yes". Hard to be critical of a man who is honest.

    Agreed, why should you have to continue when your opponent cheated and now has an unfair advantage. That’s not being a warrior, that’s being stupid.

    Nice deflection from reality.

    It’s ok if you want someone to win a belt by faking being able to continue after being dominated. You’re entitled to youre opinion.

    That's a dumb question by the ref and Smith needed to answer in a way that was looking out for himself and take the dq win. He could be seeing double, with a bad concussion and the answer to "can you continue?" would be yes.

    It rips me apart inside that the ref stopped the fight and robbed us of light heavy weight champ Sonnen, his reign would have been hilarious until that immediate rematch

    From an athetlic standpoint, no I think faking wouldnt mean hes a better fighter.


    From a financial standpoint..... yeah's he a fucking retard.


    And its not like he'd be shafting an honorable person. Jones is a piece of shit really.

    I’m pretty sure Anthony smiths decision had nothing to do with internet trolls. I’m pretty sure he felt that if he took that way to win he wouldn’t have felt like a champion. That’s not being gullible, that’s not wanting to win a championship that wasn’t “earned” which is something he probably didn’t want to live with knowing , nor any serious competitor. Similar to tony offering cowboy a rematch because he didn’t want to win like that. That’s the mindset of a winner, not a gullible loser

    Really though you can only look it as he hit a car. It’s not like he knew the driver was a pregnant lady

    When he wins the title, he wants it to be because he earned it.
    It's a matter of "when" not "if"!
