F
aber is accusing Aldo of having a pre-determined "strategy" to grab the fence if Mendez went fo take downs. You would think that fighters know that it is instincts. If Faber just pouting because Team Aplha Male got Beta'd by Jose Aldo twice now? Do people honestly think that Aldo would strategize to attempt to grab the fence?

Here is his quote:
"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."

Followed by:

"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."









My opinoin:

 also LMFAO @ him saying Mario should have stopped the fight and placed them on the ground for a FIRST offense....

"You know, we don't like to dwell on things we can't really control, but, the bottom line is, that's an infraction, they should have stopped the action and maybe started them down," Faber said.

To be fair, realistically it could have changed the fight.  I absolutely hate seeing people grab the fence to avoid takedowns, and believe when it is something that would have clearly been a takedown there needs to be a point taken away (no warning) or started on the ground.  It is a bullshit move.

Now do I believe Aldo still would have won?  Probably, but the fight would have been different imo and who knows for sure.


I still don't think Schaub would not have made it to the TUF finale if not for his constant grabbing of the fence against Madsen.  Guy just kept doing it over and over without consequence, to both avoid takedowns and get up.

Anyone else think Aldo took mercy on Faber? IMO he could have done a LOT worse than jack up his legs Phone Post

Cant wait for Barao to choke Faber out.

Yes Aldo grabbed the fence, you could take a point if you want, remember Mendes took him down with the same takedown after and Aldo got up and knocked him out.

Would he have finished him in the first round had he not grabbed the fence? Maybe, maybe not but he would have finished him at some point, Aldo is the better fighter.

If there is ever a rematch Aldo is going to put a clinic on after this comment. Not to smart to piss off a guy that fucking destroyed your ass and ko'd your training partner.

Also cold beat them both in the same night

 He did cheat and should've got a point taken away. Not saying Mendes would've won but we definitley woudl've had a 2nd round with the 1st being a 9-9 draw. Mario didn't take the point out of pressure since Rogan made such a big deal out of the Silva/Prater fight.

Faber aint getting choked out bro. What makes you believe that this is a possibility?

3 Sided Square - Clearly the guy meant Faber took a beating equivalent of two fights.

When will the first mutilated finger from a fence grab happen? That hand is so far through the fence it's crazy. Phone Post

imsupersteven - Its plausible to believe that Aldo wasn't down to trade punches with faber,resorting to kicking.He didn't kick much before that fight and hasn't done it since.For a "striker" he was afraid to exchange with Urijah Faber and scared to grapple with mendez. In fact,he has grabbed the cage in every wec and ufc fight.
Don't be ridiculous. Watch his fight with brookins. He absolutely utilized kicks before that fight. That's why Faber knew to prepare for them, and got blasted anyway. Phone Post

Aldo son'd Faber, plain and simple. Basically Aldo threw Faber a mercy round it was so bad.

And Mendes got starched cold. Lmao at thinking a fence grab would've prevented that.

Sour grapes, imo. Phone Post

Great idea IMO. Putting fence grabbers on the bottom would deter that kind of shit. Phone Post

I was at the Q&A (I work at MGM), and the article doesn't mention that Faber also said that Aldo finished Mendes in the first, so it doesn't really matter anyways.

I'm not a huge Faber fan, but gotta admit he's a pretty good speaker. That was a fun Q&A. first weighins I've ever been to

Faber got lit up so bad his corner had to carry him to his stool in between rds. Can anyone remember the last time a fighter had to be carried to his corner? Phone Post

Yea considering he has never been chocked out. Nice try though. <img src="/images/phone/apple.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>


Barao by RNC, be sure to bump July 7

^^^^^^ Faber 29 fights never been choked out... Jeff Curran had Fabers back for nearly 4 minutes and never even had him in trouble. I am not saying you are a complete idiot, but I question your way of thinking.
