People were overly impressed with McG's demolition of Dennis Siver but they're giving McG too much credit and not enough credit to karma and the MMA Gods. When McG tried to touch gloves before the fight, Siver refused. We've seen countless times before that when fighter A goes to touch gloves and fighter B refuses, fighter A usually wins in devastating fashion. We saw it when Fedor crushed Ogawa in under a minute: [no footage because of UFC copyright]. Here's the UFC's Ashlee Evans-Smith refusing to touch gloves and then getting KO'd in 5 seconds: [YT]5V0Puyoa_40?t=5m35s[/YT] Here's another example from a smaller org, a 4 second KO when the guy refuses to touch gloves: [YT]6gw-G6yy3Zg?t=38s[/YT] So McG's destruction of Siver, while complete, is not that impressive because it took him almost a round and a half to do it. A truly great fighter like Fedor would have finished his disrespectful opponent in a lot less time. Either way, the wrath of the MMA Gods were to credit for the one-sided fight, not some transcendent skills of McG.
