    Why bother? He still won the fight? They just wanted him to win it even more?

    just another example that the judges fug everything up

    Pierce looks like a zombie in this picture

  5. Kanona says:

    Pierce’s gameplan was smart… And ridiculously boring. Press Rocha against the fence for as long as possible and throw in a takedown to win the round by “imposing his will”… Weak… Truth is he didn’t want ANY part of Rocha’s ground game and apparently none of his stand up as well… His most significant strikes were in the last :20 of the 3rd round… Not impressed…
