    I thought putting your fingers inside the glove of an opponent and holding on wasn't allowed.

    I've had this on my mind for a while, the referee was in good view of him, he actually held the glove from about 2 minutes and 35 seconds into the fight for about 10 seconds later give or take.

    I'm not really to fresh wiht all of the rules of MMA. So, they are not allowed to grab the gloves of their opponent, or what should I be looking for in this pic?

    they aren't supposed to grab the gloves. don't think he did it as intentinoally as it is made out to be in this thread or the ref would have said something and told him to stop doing it/taken away a point

    Damn, Thales probably should have won.

    Yeah, it's illegal but probably had no effect. Let's never talk of that fight again.

    I'm looking forward to UFC 100!

    At least Silva lost. He is always causing problems.

    Jesus dude, what is it with you and Rodja completely irrationally hating on Anderson? Sure his 2 last fights were letdowns, but he completely dominated. When has he looked vulnerable?

    Against Lutter? He was coming off 2 knee surgeries was in a terrible spots (mounted) and never looked to be in danger. Also, he has improved a ton since then and is much bigger.

    Against Henderson? He got taken down once followed by Henderson doing little. Henderson could not take him down again.

    Starvin Marvin? He weighs more than you before he cuts at a shorter height.

    Is he not top 3 PFP?

    The only potential weakness I see is to a guy with a really quick shot, but even then, his guard is absolutely nasty.

    He doesnt weigh more than me before cutting. Not that it matters in the slightest, but 3 weeks after my fight i was at 230. Dude would kill me, but his frame is smaller than mine. Honestly I dont think hes top 3 p4p. My top 3 is Fedor, GSP, and Machida.
