well mike massenzio is wrong because cb didn't tap, and then he went on to school him on the ground.

He was trying to bruise up Massenzio's thigh with open handed palm strikes while working his neck out of the guillotine.

He tapped. Ref missed it. Let's move on. Does anybody really care about either of these guys? C.B. is not as good as he thinks he is and Massenzio was looking for a way out of that fight from the moment he missed that submission.

video of Massenzio vs. Dolloway

With 3:53 left in the first round, he clearly taps 2 times on Massenzio's left side.

It's so quick though, I question it. If it happened so quick that the ref missed it, I'm willing to overlook it.

But this is the 2nd time now, and it makes me think he panics and taps right away when he's caught real good.

Yes, actually I care about these guys and the whole debate. That's why I'm here - to talk about stuff like this as often as I can. I don't want to move on.

i dont care about either of these guys but what i do care about is the fight being called the right way (no mater whos fighting)

and yes he did tap

the only way i see thing like this changing is if thier are 2 refs ...1 in the cage and 1 in the "booth" watching on a monitor

now in saying that................. let the flamming begin

I would've given CB the befinfit of the doubt if it weren't for the Amir fight.

It's stupid. He didn't tap. Is it a tap anytime someone's hand comes down? wtf? I bet y'all also argue that Saku tapped to Royce. Same type of scenario.

I really think he was just replanting his hand.
