i must disagree. i think im being pretty objective as i have no hatred towards fisher (am i missing something, why do people hate on him?). but its my opinion that fisher didnt inflict any damage on franca. to the best of my memory, he didnt land any hard punches or have franca in any danger at any point in the fight. in short, franca dominated. but i do think franca was getting winded right before the k.o., so who knows what wouldve happened if fisher lasted a bit longer.
Hmmmm, i guess it's just a matter of opinion. But yeah there are lot of Fisher haters out there judging by the comments made at Sherdog. Most were something along the lines of, "I'm so happy fisher got KTFO, I hate that guy"
But its proby a good thing Hermes defeated Fisher because Hermes has a much better chance against Sherk then Fisher did. Fisher takedown defense is dreadful and doesnt have the offense off his back to control Sherk. Hopefully Franca will put an end to Sherks title reign.
At Sherdog, usually one of their factions Pride, UFC, Brazil, Gracie, Japan, Russian, and just about anything else you can imagine has a group of nutthuggers and or haters. I looked over there and the people who post on a thread comparable to those who are on is negligle. Personally I like Fisher, and was pulling for him. I like Franca too. However, I've wacthed that fight 4 times now and Franca did not dominate. He won, good job, and if Fisher had tried to pull guard and tie up or clinch and tie up he might have escaped and who knows. Still, he didn't escape and kudos to Franca for showing killer instinct and being a finisher. It was a very close fight till he got rocked bad in the 2nd IMO.
