“I couldn’t do anything, I was too sick. I don’t really wanna talk about it so it doesn’t sound like an excuse and I’m not taking back his credits”, says the fighter. “That’s only going to strengthen me and I’ll become a champion”.

During the fight, the Brazilian insisted on a heel hook, but couldn’t get the finish and was knocked out right after his frustrated attempts.

“When you get it (the position), you gotta really get it. I tried to repeat it, but I was gassing off, I was not strong enough. It wasn’t my day, literally. I was dead, I couldn’t move”, he said.

 I love how the excuse is always followed by a negation of it....

 I'm surprised to hear a Brazilian admit that his specialty sub is so strength dependent.

I know he isn't making excuses because all Brazilian fighters have the Aura of the Samurai and would never do such a thing.

This is one guy that I have to say may be telling the truth. He usually doesn't not get the tap when he rolls into a heel hook. Belcher almost made it look easy and palhares has submitted many high level black belts before.

You must've forgotten the part where Herb Dean, a commissioner and Palhares' manager checked Nate for grease and cleared him. Phone Post

What was he sick with?

 Even a guy with diarrhea can finish a fight with a triangle.  Gotta look for your advantages.

This is the new way of just coming out and saying there was an excuse why a fighter loses or didn't perform the way they should have. 'This isnt an excuse, but going into that fight I was ________' It reminds me of that Curb Your Enthusiasm where Larry gets pist because people donate $ to charity under 'anonymous' & then tell a few people so everybody knows who 'anonymous' is. They want people to know there was an excuse while also wanting to win people over for not making an excuse. I think it would be best left unsaid if you didn't want to float excuses out there.

 I don't know....

It kind of makes sense.

He started real strong, then just kind of gave up.

Hendo pounded on him pretty good in their bout but he never gave it up just like that.
Can't really use the Marquart fight as an example cause when Nate hit him with the first pounding shot he totally caught him flush and knocked him for six.

It looked strange to me how he just kind of lay on his back got pounded on like that.

I'd rather think it's just an excuse cause I was delighted to see someone (Belcher) actually stave off that knee cracking maniacs attempt at breaking his leg.

But Harris's next bout will be interesting.

REAL interesting....
