Stevenson showed a lot of class even after he made quick work of Guillard. He did not talk trash or anything, he actually gave Guillard some encouraging words. That just makes Guillard look more like a chump.
I couldn't agree more about Stevenson showing a lot of class (even my mother was impressed and she hates mma, just happened to catch it). That's what is so great about this sport, the fighters don't try to pretend hate and the fans don't expect to see that. I don't get how it made Guillard look like a chump. Hopefully it was humbling for him. Daddy looked so calm tonight, I was very impressed.
Because Guillard was a total jackass from the start to the beginning of the fight (he did not even touch gloves) and he got smoked by Stevenson. Usually, you would expect someone (even a nice guy) to talk a bit of trash later, but Stevenson was totally in check of his ego.
That just makes Guillard look more like a fool than if Stevenson decided to talk trash during the post-fight interview. You talk all this trash about how you are going to beat the guy and how you are the best, while the other guy just lets his actions do the talking for him.
