    I mean respect for even stepping up to a more difficult weight class against a beast like stipe.

    This is really sincere and I hope he bounces back

    I feel that he would have got ko'd sooner or later anyways. He isn't known for his head movement.

    Yeah, the taking punches to the face gameplan wasn't smart.

    Can you blame him? The majority of (popular) Brazilians do make excuses and have the temperament of a 12 year old. Are we not supposed to poke fun at this happening?
