I know GSP looks like the bad guy here but I blame this loss on Hendricks. He said it himself he was only throwing at 70%. what kinda bullshit is that this isn’t a sparring match this is a UFC World Title match Go 100% secure the win, his own fault for losing. Log in to Reply Ricky November 18, 2013 Clearly a tap! Dana should be bitching about the ref not the judges. He’s just pissed the biggest PPV draw retires with the belt. Log in to Reply High Stakes November 18, 2013 yea that was clearly a tap! I saw it in real time and I don’t know how no one else is talking about this??? obviously he starts tapping as gsp is letting go but I still think it should have been brought up! SO surprised that no one asked in the post fight press conference or media scrum??? Log in to Reply cranberry November 18, 2013 If you look closely you can see what really happened. Hendricks grabbed gsp’s balls with his right hand forcing gsp to release his death grip. Log in to Reply Krayon November 18, 2013 Fight metrics gave it to Hendricks . Log in to Reply Rugburn November 18, 2013 First off do you think GSP would’ve just go on without immediately complaining??? Lastly, if GSP let go that’s his own fault. You don’t let go until the ref calls it. Anyhow any real MMA fighter knows what a real tap is and this is no where near one. Log in to Reply NotVinnieJones November 18, 2013 For all you who are fooling yourselves into thinking Hendrix tapped, right click on the GIF, click on “Play Speed” then “Slow Motion”. After that you can actually see these “taps” occurring AFTER gsp let go of the hold, not to mention that none of those “taps” touched GSP. Why would Hendrix tap after the hold is released? Why would the ref stop the fight if Hendrix isn’t actually tapping anything but just moving his hand in the air? I’d like to see someone still argue how it was a legitimate tap after watching it in slow motion. I would lol at that. Log in to Reply noUsername November 19, 2013 It was a tap. I think Hendricks knowingly tapped in such a way to try and get GSP to let go. I also think GSPs weight and leverage was in such a way downward on Hendricks’ neck that he (and GSP) both knew it was dangerous for JH. Which is why he moved his hand from the inside of GSP’s leg to the outside, not to move GSP’s leg up, but to tap. GSP knew he got dupped, and went on, and did not say anything because he has class. For me, that made the next 4 rounds = the rematch. But since GSP tied the last 4 rnds, that gives GSP a win and a draw. and JH a draw and a loss. and a handkerchief to cry in. I lost a lot of respect for JH. Log in to Reply NotVinnieJones November 19, 2013 ^^^^ obviously someone didn’t take my advice and watch it in slow motion. Either that, or some people are so diluted that that can’t accept the fact that it wasn’t a tap, despite the proof being in front of their eyes!! Once again…use the slow-motion option of the video, people, so you don’t end up sounding like a complete idiot like ^^^^ Log in to Reply pezdacanuck November 20, 2013 I used to box, and cuts to the face don’t mean jack. It looks like a tap out, but since GSP was letting go, it doesn’t matter. GSP took the decision. If another fight happens again, so be it. The real issue are comments from White and Rogan. Both of these guys are little more than money grabbing twits. Rogan’s comments were especially worthless. Log in to Reply pwrshot November 21, 2013 How is that so many continue to judge the fight based on the appearance of Georges face? Does that mean BJ Penn also beat GSP when his nose was busted up? A fight is not based on facial damage alone. You need to count all the strikes which are landed, did GSP continually land strikes over and over? If GSP didn’t say he needed time away from the sport do you really think White would of made the same comments? If GSP said nothing of this White would of had another story to tell. “It was a close fight but George landed more strikes and when it is close the edge always goes to the Champion”. Log in to Reply RjWoods November 21, 2013 From section 207 of the garden arena I thought the fight could have went either way when it was done. Not knowing about the tapp at that time. I clearly see this video as a tapp that was missed. I agree with the judgeing totally and that you can not judge the winner by war wounds. GSP deserved the win.
