    Said he almost walked out of the fight it was so frustrating. Blamed the ref for not breaking up the clinch. Didn't say anything about Holm just wanting to clinch the whole fight.

    The ref bears some responsibility, but Holm and her corner deserves some blame too for coming with the most boring gameplan ever.

    the fighters job is to fight

    the refs job is to enforce the rules

    dont blame a fighter for breaking the rules. blame the ref for not enforcing them.

    More power to the ref, let them fight.

    Holms fought a boring game plan, shes a boring fighter. Don't know why shes a crowd favorite.

    Dude put a chick whos 10-8 in the co-main event and is mad at the result.

    Even if the ref separated them, it was clearly going right back to the clinch. Can't blame the ref for the fight at all.

    It was dana who failed. Because he is the one putting those fights on the cards. WMMA can go back to some other league most of their fights are low level utter shit.

    Their first fight sucked. I'm not sure why anyone thought the rematch would be any better.
    Can we have a rematch of Mir vs. CroCop? Maybe it won't suck balls this time.

    Jackson/Wink fighters fight to win and always have.

    It ain't always pretty.

    Jackson Wink has been known to be sport killers.

    Exploiting that scoring and making boring fights.

    I skipped straight past the fight to the decision. Dana is a fool if he didn't see that coming a mile away.

    Another classic Dana vs Ref rant

  17. Dana should be mad at himself for allowing that fight in the first place. What did the bloated goof think was going to happen by matching two boring fighters together?

    interesting fact - Holm was in the co-main event of UFC 196, lost by submission as did McGregor to Diaz.

    at UFC 246 Holm (again in Co-main event) won. McGregor won too
