i mean if your on the street and you fall down like that, in the eyes of the witnesses, it is a knockdown whether it is a slip or not

I've never heard of Wland. Sounds like an organ or something.

I can't understand how anyone scored the fight for Wanderlei, really.

On a damage-scored basis Chuck OWNED Silva. I mean, Wanderlei took some serious punishment - I don't think Chuck got hurt at all.

I think GSP did very very well. But he obviously has the size & strength advantage, thats the only reason he was able to man handle Hughes like that. I think Hughes could be fighting at a lower weight for his height and frame.

It didn't appear evident to me that he is WAY stronger. When was the last time you've seen Hughes get thrown around like that and dominated at his own game? It seemed to me that Hughes had a hard time dealing with GSPs size.

those moves that you saw was pure technique. it is well known in the martial arts world that technique overcomes strength. so i say it again, matt hughes is way stronger and that is what he is known for.
