    Maybe he's just disappointed about the loss and dreading the recovery period and he'll change his mind as he gets healthy. Then again, maybe he's reached that point where he's ready to walk away.

    I wish more fighters would come to that conclusion and walk away without becoming a complete shell of themselves first, but I understand why the love of the sport - or the need for the money - makes it tough for many to do that.

    Yea man it was such a matter of time that the Baron, Renan Barao couldn't do it without an assist from the ref. :icon_lol:

    And as a matter of fact, he got hit because he was over-extended past his stance. "hands up" wouldn't have done anything to save him there. Chin down would've helped a little, but his weight was not properly distributed to begin with, which is the more important issue.

    Wineland is one of the best strikers in the lower weight classes, he knows what he's doing.

    FFS, Anderson Silva drops his hands and leaves his chin dangling right out there all the time and he gets called the GOAT for it.

    He said he's basically going to be out for the next 10 months because of his jaw so I highly doubt that he'll have a fight lined up in the next 3 months

    He probably won't have a fight in the next 3 months yeah, but he said that he's had a jaw injury before and it kept him out for 10 months at that time, not that he would be out for that long right now.

    He still has a lay-off to deal with, but his official suspension is actually 6 weeks, before the doctor can even think about clearing him to fight or train.

    Cause he makes it super obvious that he was trying to do as such. And even then, it's what got him caught and makes tons of non-MMA fans shit on him. Very different from just having subpar/lazy defense.
