Faber criticizes ref in Mendes fight, calls Aldo a cheater

source: mmafighting.com
 

"The ref had said something about [fence grabbing] in the locker room before the fight," Faber said. "But he had been put on blast because of a questionable call against the Brazilians earlier in the night, so I guess he didn't want to piss off the Brazilians very much."

Faber thinks that the fence grab was part of a strategy employed by Aldo.

"I think he was prepared to take the penalty for the fence grab, but it didn't happen," he said. "It's not his fault, he just kept on fighting, he was doing that to save himself from getting taken down. It would have changed the fight for sure

"I think he did that on purpose, because he knows, he knew [the ground was] where he didn't want to be. He was willing to take a penalty to avoid that. It was a gamble on his part and it paid off."

And I said you're mah dog. On the mean streets of Callaway,FL this means "to have respect for a person based on observations that deem said person to be legitimately competent and respectful member of a social group"

I lied. I don't think we're officially ninjas. You're a poster that ripped into my noob-ness once or twice iirc and one I put into the "normal dude/not a weirdo or annoying troll/purist/fan of mma in general" category. My initial SN was youabsolutelysuck. Had to drop it because of rabid anti-Sonnen fans,over zealous Anderson fans and Chael has just about jumped the shark.
