Re: Wanderlei vs Crocop - Brutal fight
In theory the yellow card law was great it would encourage fighters to 'fight' more. But the amount of times i saw a fighter get beaten from pillar to post and then get a yellow card was ridiculous, in that situation what could Silva possibly do apart from cover up and defend himself?
He then lost 10% of his purse for that, quite silly and unfair. You'd never see a Japanese fighter get a yellow thats for sure.
I also agree with achilles.....i think people are to quick to write people of after a loss, it think my enquiries are acceptable though after a defeat such as this but generally we do write of a fighter when he loses.
I think this trend is far worse in boxing though, when a fighter loses in boxing people act as if his career is over until he makes another high profile win!
