"As fans, we sometimes are immune to the personal issues that impact the lives and affect the performances of the athletes we love to watch.
We expect quarterbacks to throw touchdowns and guards to sink their free throws and sluggers to hit home runs and fighters to score knockouts, and we expect them to do all of that without letting on they have problems in their personal lives that make it difficult for them to concentrate fully on their jobs.
If there is anyone with excuses, it is veteran UFC welterweight Chris Wilson (14-5 MMA, 1-2 UFC), who is slated to face Mike Pyle (17-6-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) on Wednesday in Oklahoma City at 'Ultimate Fight Night 19: Diaz vs. Guillard.'"

Definitely a loser goes home match, but to be fair Pyle got his fight on super short notice...(got subbed in the first round)
One of Wilson's losses is to Jon Fitch, and the other is to a very tough Doomsday Howard (which was a split decision)
