It hurts when your guy loses. It stings more when he gets destroyed. But that is part of the sport, and you have to take it like a man.
I love Hassan Yazdani. It broke my heart when he got pinned by Taylor in front of the home town fans. But, I have nothing but respect and admiration for Taylor.
We all need to respect the sport and our opponents.
No one will like me after this post, but here it goes
It is really bad form to disrespect a legend and one of the greatest wrestlers of all time.Burroughs is one of the greatest of all time and should be treated with the respect he deserves.
I am also disappointed that every time an American loses some of the posters here accuse the winner of juicing. What happened to innocent till proven guilty? I remember people here were accusing Hassan Yazdani of juicing because he grew very fast, but as soon as he lost to Taylor, everything was OK.
Agree. A man can take a bunch of shots, but if his opponent holds the center and does not drift to the zone, he will not be called for stalling. Not that I agree with this definition, but how it is often called.
