if this was in the octagon,lindland would of slammed Fedor on his back!...its a shame he grabbed onto the ropes that long....the ref warned him like 10 times to let go.........if lindland would of gotten top position he would of really worked that cut
....and if matt hadn't grabbed his shorts Fedor would've had the armbar earlier.. and if Chuck didn't grab the cage.. blah blah.
Fedor definately used that to his advantage and it's wrong, but it's MMA, it's part of the game. With the possible exception of the cut, I don't think it would've mattered. Fedor has great guard defense and would've reversed him, maybe given up his back to scramble out. Matt's good, but Fedor is slick on the ground and bigger. The end would've likely been the same.
