    don't be lazy, read the whole 3 paragraphs, you goof
    With the beatdown of Anthony Smith still fresh in our minds, I'm asking you: do you remember a bad blood fight when the one fighter got to choose to prolong the fight or not, he choose to prolong it just to deliver more damage to his opponent? (It doesn't need to be from UFC.) Jon could not follow up with that feroucious GnP on Cormier in their rematch. Cormier was pushing that hard of a pace, he would be a punching bag in the next rounds regardless of the knockdown. I know that Khabib wanted to punish Conor, for example. And he could, but chose to end the fight. He absolutely could beat him up in the next round and a half.

    Because I swear I never saw one single intentionally prolonged beatdown. And it's a shame. Because some of us fans live for this shit. These people hate each other in the guts and when they have the chance to make a statement, 100% of the time they chose to finish their enemy on the spot, instead of beating him up in the course of 3 or 5 rounds. And from experience we know how much, much worse is to slowly beat someone for 15 mins within the inch of his life, than to just choke him or knock him out.

    Every prolonged beatdown I saw happened by chance, tho. Some bad ref or corner in combination with a guy that is unable to finish the fight and his opponent is too tough for his own good. And it's ugly because a lot of the times it's unnecessary. There are no story to follow. No bad vs good guy. Usually people who get in these are nice guys that we all love and would like to get to fight another day, not to get maimed. Who wants to see Lionheart fucked up? Or an older example: Gavin Tucker?

    They have happened,but its really stupid to "live for this shit"

    Winning is what matters. Not humiliation. Beating an opponent in a fight is enough.Thats it. You play this showoff bullshit with people they might come back and KO you. Sakuraba was completley clowning Nino Schembri and paid the ultimate price,and that guy was barely an mma fighter.

    Just kidding, I did read it.

    But @HHJ is right. If you "live for this shit", you are watching it for the wrong reasons IMO.

    I vaguely recall times when fighters have claimed they were going to do, or had done, such things. But whether that was true, or simply trash talk (before) or spinning an excuse for not finishing someone (after), who can be sure...

    He punched guys just enough so the ref wont stand him up. Not to be a dick.
    At some point he fell out with the UFC,and refused to offer him meaningful fights,so he just stunk up the ocatagon,winning fights with the most minimal effort he could put forth.

    i exaggerated for effect. it's not like i live for this, more like i would like some of this loudmouths actually try to do what they say. and sometimes i hate the one fighter so much that i would like to see him take some life changing shots. why the hell not. everybody cheered when Hendo elbowed Lombard's dead body? Lombard is a piece of shit anyways.
    it was nice, i'll admit that

    If u dont like someone then you want to beat the guy for 2 rounds straight and finish him at the end of the 3rd.

    Now imagine losing to someone only putting minimal effort in.

    That's still kinda weird dude.

    As much as you enjoy seeing people get hurt, 99% of fighters want to get in there, win as quickly as possible while taking as little damage as possible, get paid and go home.

    I really belive khabib stopped the ground n pound in round two and went for the kimura because he wanted to break conor's arm. He just needed to push the pace outside of that i don't remember anyone doing that, maybe silva vs griffin
