That's the way it looked to me too. Looked like he dropped his hands to protect against a shot to the body and didn't expect to get cracked up side the head.
Just a little question. Mirko, by all accounts, is a badass. Do you think that one of the UFC guys handing him a good beating (even before the KO) will get a little respect from the Pride faithful?
All you hear is how Pride has the better fighters, and they would destroy the UFC fighters. I am not taking anything away from Pride, because I was skeptic too, but does this give a little validation to UFC? What if Chuck destroys Rampage? What if Fedor was was beat?
