Caceres: Figueroa 'milked it' on low blows

source: sherdog.com
 

"To be honest with you, I don't know what the hell was going on in that fight. I was pretty surprised that any of that happened. I was aware of the low blows I delivered and I have to admit, the first and second low blow did not land in his crotch. I believe he was milking it a little bit. I mean, he even admitted it a little bit, saying that the second one wasn't even a low blow, it was vibrations from the low kick that hurt his groin.

I was surprised because I never heard of a two-point deduction. Ever. Herb Dean did warn me after the first time but then again I thought it was a glancing blow, it wasn't as bad as they were making it out to seem. It's pretty disappointing, it's pretty frustrating, but the decision's made. What I can do is just get back in the gym and never throw inside leg kicks again because apparently, they're gonna milk it for all they got."

I like how Caceres "admits" to having done nothing wrong. That shows a lot of class.

 I thought the first one was legit.  Dude was dropped. The one where the points were deducted was BS.  At best it was a little stinger, but he was milking that one for sure. Fucked up fight though ... the 2 points was absurd.

It's easy to say that when he didn't believe The ref that the fight was over...If he didn't know the third round was done, he can't say if the guy milked it or not.

Clearly should have been 1 point, but to think those nut shots didn't take something out of him for the remainder of the fight is ridiculous. And Caceres' comments are even more ridiculous......

Like I said in the other thread. After the 2nd one he totally could of said he couldn't of continued and taken the DQ win. He didn't, that right there shows me hes not a bitch and was not faking anything or hamming anything up. He was getting mauled to and he still went on. I don't agree with the 2 point deduction but there was no acting.

they said he was haming up the second one, especially after Herb Dean said that he'd take at least a point away on the next one. I still think 2 points was BS, 1 would have been fair.

Really?? Then that's stupid of them to say. Having taken two real bad shots to the nuts in my lifetime, I CRINGED when I saw the first one. They can be debilitating as fu$k.......

Florian and rashad both said he was hamming it up, I kind of agree

 Let's allow nut shots and have done with all the carping.   They're like liver shots and haymakers to the jaw.  They decide the outcome of fights.
