Bigfoot, Cain & Cut
Member Since: 1/1/01
Just got back to Brazil, was in the air, and only now found out about the uproar my comments on MMAJunkie Radio created, so I would like to clarify:
I have seen way worse cuts then the one Cain inflicted on Bigfoot. The problem with this particular cut was not the size or anything, but the profuse bleeding into Bigfoot's eyes. This is not an excuse, it is a fact. I am not here saying that wasnt for the cut, Bigfoot would have won, nor I am making an excuse.
What I am saying, again, is a fact. Had not been the cut, the fight most probably would have gone on, who knows what the outcome might have been, maybe Cain would have won anyways, maybe not.
I also think that elbows on the ground should not be allowed. For the most part, they cause cuts, which are diferent then KOs, TKOs or Subs. They also tend to make a bloody mess, sometimes from relatively minor damage, and this does not help MMA as it tends to alienate many people to the sport.
I didnt mean in no way to diminish Cain's victory, or make an excuse for Bigfoot's defeat, but simply state a fact that myself, and any one else who watched the fight, witnessed.
