I still can't believe that M-1 talks like they do. They have one fighter! And they act like they are the next big thing in MMA
They didn't really say much though...I think if they keep working with the fromer Pride guys they can suceed with better accounting.
but i still want to freakin know where they get off not letting choi knee fedor in the face... i mean sure fedor mauled choi like a little rabid russian pit bull and it was awesome... but whats the deal with special rules for just fedor?
It was to make sure that Fedor was going to win easely.
so basically, Fedor was able to go at 100% for the clinch without having to worry about being hit by a knee.
so it was as arranged as you can arranged the rule to be sure that your millionaire don't lose but without cheating.
and Choi was paid very well to not argue with it at all.
it was like if Randy Couture was fighting in a boxing card against the boxing champ who say that he can beat any MMA champ but to make sure that Couture don't win, the rules would allowed no knee, no takedown, no elbow, no clinch, so basically a boxing fight only where Couture have no chance.
Don't forget that even if Choi was allowed to do many things, he basically know nothing else than punching and kneeing. so by removing a good weapon against a takedown attempt there make it sure that the fight was going to the ground and even if the average joe was seeing Choi dominating on top , it was really fedor who was confortable and he was having 100 subs possible to do against Choi who simply have 0 knowledge of what was going on even by being on top.
