Default Re: Mercer vs. Kimbo: Round by Round, Anyone?

I don't get it. I watched that fight and Mercer was on top of him, and then the ref just pulls him off, pushes him over, and declares Slice the winner. Looked real phony to me. What a joke UFC is.

WATCH MERCER'S LEFT HAND, HE TAPS FROM A CHOKE. THEN THEY SWITCH THE CAMERA ANGLE AND YOU SEE THE REF JUMPING IN AND MERCER ABOUT TO THROW A PUNCH. BUT HE DID TAP

your so ignorant it's pathetic first of all that wasn't the UFC it was a lower org. second having blinders on you didn't see Kimbo having a gullitine choke on Mercer and Mercer tapping out.Third that just goes to show even a chump like Kimbo can easily beat a boxer in a fight. so quit making excuses "if it was a boxing match" shit because it was an MMA fight which Mercer knew he was in.

So what if it's some UFC wannabe, it's still in a cage, they still roll around on the ground - what the f*cks the difference?? What I don't get is why they just pulled Mercer off him when he was on top. Tapping out? Are people saying Mercer surrendered?? When he was on top? How silly. This is exactly why I don't like UFC or any of its immitators (now, does that cover it??)!

yes, mercer surrerendered, he was being choked from the bottom and if he didn't tap out he would have been dead, just like a real fight situation which you have no clue of

How can anyone miss Ray's left hand tapping the canvas? He was getting choked. His only choices were to tap, or pass out.

It was not a boxing match. Kimbo did not cheat. You can watch some of Kimbo's prefight training of youtube. He was training for a fight under MMA rules. This was not set up to a boxing match at any time. Mercer claimed he was working out with jiu-jitsu instructors. Before the fight, Mercer said he should have joined this sport 10 years ago.

People who called Slice, a bum, and now say the fight should have been under boxing rules are not making any sense. Of course that would be different. It still sounds like someone who idolizes Peyton Manning getting uspet if he lost a one on one basketball game to Lebron James. Then trying to say, "oh yeah let Lebron try to pass a football in the NFL."

MMA is a different sport. You have more moves to use than in a boxing match. If you can't outstrike someone, you take them down. The funny thing is, Mercer was outstruck too. I lost 20 dollars on Mercer last night. I'm not going to whine about what would have happened if they went bowling, just because my guy lost.

I bet Ray could beat Kimbo in a tap dancing class. He sure showed he could tap in less time with his hands. Why not his feet? Saying things like the previous two sentences are just a waste of time. Why be mad because someone is better at a different sport?
