    Who are some fighters who literally backpedaled the majority of a fight?

    I'll start with a couple obvious ones :

    Starnes vs Quarry
    Condit vs Diaz


    and i'll throw one out there that's not quite as popular :

    Gustafsson literally running scared from Thiago Silva the entire third round and majority of the second. The end of the fight he literally ran away for 20 seconds.

    ITT "I don't understand defense. Stand and bang!"

    Other than Starnes. That was embarrassing.

    Jones ran from Rampage like crazy. I've never even seen something like that in my life.

    I don't even remember the Gus/Thiago fight. I'll have to rewatch it.

    It is funny if Gus really did run away from Thiago.

    Skip to 1:30 champ. What do you call that at the end of the third round "delusional fuck" :rolleyes: He got rocked by Silva in the second round and proceeded to run for the remainder of the bout throwing little jabs and silly little front kicks.

    I see what you did there, Gus ran out of the octagon after the fight while Jones could barely walk.

    How did he beat up Gustafsson the whole fifth round if he could barely walk?

    Still pissed about this. In boxing he'd be laughed at for years and would probably be banned from competition for a few months. In MMA, he gets the decision.

    Yeah all he does is running, sometimes I wonder how he manages to win fights.
