I understand sportsmanship but why hug the guy afterwards ?It makes his cheap shot seem forgiven.If the winner and his corner just ignored the guy and his corner the practice would be less likely to occur in the future.
If as a fighter I had to fear being ostracczed by my own corner I wouldn’t pull that stunt.

i watched a few times. it did not appear to me to be a cheap shot. the one guys glove was up there and Alex didnt acknowledge it. Its hard to say. maybe that is why the guy responded how he did at the end. i dont know.

I didn’t really see the fake glove touch. What I saw was that Adam raised his arm to touch glove and Alex didn’t do it. You can even see Alex moving his head saying “no.” Just focus on Alex in the beginning of the fight, not Adam.
Then, Adam threw a left hand.
I think this one was just a normal confusion when a fighter forgets to ask before the fight starts if they are going to touch gloves.

U can call it a cheap ,I guess, if u actually look he went to touch gloves and the other guy didn’t want to ,didn’t evenattempt to. So its really not a cheap shot.

He didn’t want to touch it so they went straight to the business. Protect yourself at all times

Cheap. Very cheap. The other guy was naive, bit still it was a cheap shot.

ETK Says, in 11-21-2012 at 10:54:31 from    

Looks like he offered his hand, but the other guy refused, so he proceeded to swing away.

Fyfe in french canadian means f** so I guess he wears his name correctly.

1:06 – Eating a sandwich front row at the fights?

I don’t think he liked his intro music.

What is up with the 3-minute rounds???

ktktk Says, in 11-21-2012 at 13:32:24 from    

despite all the comments above, I think it is difficult to pretend that he didn’t try to use the non-glove touch to his advantage. He tried to surprise the guy while the other guy thought he was trying to touch gloves. Maybe he did it with intent maybe not. Either way he used the glove touch as a distraction to get the first punch in.

ktktk Says, in 11-21-2012 at 13:34:15 from    

also, you don’t raise your glove to touch and then keep walking forward until you have the other guy on the ropes. he was definitely up to something. I would rate this one up as more stupidity than a lack of class or sportsmanship.

Cletus Says, in 11-21-2012 at 13:34:44 from    

I didn’t see a fake glove touch at all, the other guy didn’t want to touch so he went immediately to work on him but unfortunately was was weak and got pummeled.

what a bummer

Perulives Says, in 11-21-2012 at 15:38:20 from    

Didn’t seem too cheap to me, raised his hand to touch gloves.. no touch? Ok punch

Vic77 Says, in 11-21-2012 at 15:41:34 from    

how about stop touching gloves and hugging period….is it a fight or a disco

bernie Says, in 11-21-2012 at 15:41:43 from    

Yeah, from the other guy’s speedy reactions, I believe he simply didn’t want to touch gloves, still everything came out a little awkward though.

Not dirty, the winner of the fight shakes his head “No” when Fyfe wants to touch gloves. Do you think Thorne would have been so nice after the fight if Fyfe actually did that?

Kowe Says, in 11-21-2012 at 17:07:03 from    

yea, if you watch closely the other guy waved it off (with his head) and didn’t want to touch gloves. doesn’t look like a cheap shot.

greengiant Says, in 11-21-2012 at 17:09:36 from    

bitch ass mover by a scared coward.

IKnives Says, in 11-21-2012 at 17:14:18 from    

The other guy clearly shakes his head to say “no”

TheKungFuLowKick Says, in 11-21-2012 at 17:25:51 from    

I think it’s because it’s amateur MMA.

urbanangel22 Says, in 11-21-2012 at 17:33:40 from    

This wasn’t a cheap shot. Some of you idiots decide to just follow suite – accusing the guy of all sorts of things in a senseless pack mentality. Guy did nothing wrong at all and MMA fans are up there with football as some of the biggest a******* ever.

that donut/bagel pic at the top always gets me aroused

Nexstory Says, in 11-21-2012 at 17:46:50 from    

Looked carefully and because Alex didn’t acknowledge the extended hand, the fight was on. Sad for the Brit that he didn’t have knockout power.

bob hopeless Says, in 11-22-2012 at 00:54:09 from    

not a cheap shot in any way.

karmaneverforgets Says, in 11-22-2012 at 02:08:29 from    

You can tell by how quick the cheap-shot came that he had planned on doing that regardless of if the guy touched gloves or not. His opponent had a lot better chance of blocking this shot by not touching gloves, but unfortunately he still couldn’t block it.

Not illegal, but it’s dirty.

The good news is everyone this guy is ever going to face for the rest of his career is going to know what kind of a fighter he is. He’ll never be able to do this again and people love giving someone a taste of their own medicine.

m*********** got what he deserved

eizmed Says, in 11-22-2012 at 06:00:57 from    

Attempted touch-glove or not, head shake or not, that hand was raised as a distraction. True sportsman and figher would not use it in this manner….

tobes Says, in 11-22-2012 at 12:41:02 from    

@vic77 – you’re clearly not a fighter.

dankarelli Says, in 11-22-2012 at 15:50:04 from    

urbanangel22 – you’re an asshole.

Not only was that an ass faced, pathetic, unsportsmanlike, disrespectful, weasel, unethical and PATHETIC thing to do, but when the guy finally got KO’d (glass jaw btw), I actually wished the guy would have kicked him in his face – I wouldn’t have blamed him if he did. Some guys deserve a little “extra” beating from time to time and this douoche was a prime candidate.

FailSonnen Says, in 11-22-2012 at 17:24:04 from    

I like how everyone is having dinner and wine like there isnt a fight going on. What a weird set up

ryeboi Says, in 11-22-2012 at 23:06:56 from    

first off, IT WAS A FAKE GLOVE TOUCH, if you’re not going to touch gloves, reset your position.


jakelo Says, in 11-23-2012 at 16:30:40 from
