Catone's blown knee to blame for decision


UFC 169 had ten decisions and only two finishes this past weekend in New Jersey. Nick Catone earned one of those decision wins, but unlike some others he has some semblance of an excuse, as he blew his knee out in the second round.

So what do we blame for Catone boring decisions in his last two wins?

He is blaming the knee for the decision? Blame Watson for your knee. If there was a take-down championship somewhere, I would see him with a belt.

Same here, I don't like Watson much at all, but he was robbed.

Watson landed the kicks that blew the knee, pretty good evidence in the photo that he won the fight

Just felt the need to also come in and say that it was a terrible fucking decision. A few takedowns that dont even lead to any gnp and you give the guy who can barely stand the W? Fooking horsesheet. I know there's been more lopsided victories and bigger robberies but to say that was anything but a goddamn robbery is lunacy. I'm not even a fan of Watson but he deserved that win in a big way.

Judges and terrible decisions have inscribed the over value of the takedown into people's brains.

If you really believe that there is something fundamentally wrong with your brain and you should stop watching MMA because it must look like the Rob Zombie animated sequence of Beavis and Butthead Do America to you. Perhaps anti-psychotic drugs will clear your perspective because Nick did NOTHING but score a handful of takedowns that Watson worked right up from. Tom on the other hand beat the shit out of Nick for three rounds.

I'm pretty sure getting your ass kicked isn't considered winning in most people's dictionaries.
