Quote of the Day: Jorge Ortiz Helped Andrei Arlovski

"I honestly think we shouldn't have them at all.  You get a stand up if you can survive the round and make it to the next.  If a guy can force you to stand up with him by avoiding the take downs, a guy should be able to force you to fight on the ground by holding you down.  It's mixed martial arts, and that's a part of the game.  I think these stand ups are incredibly unfair for grapplers.  Like I'm quoted earlier in this thread, 5 minutes isn't that long a time.

If a guy can hold you down and give you nuggies for 5 minutes, that's life.

If a fighter is boring they won't be popular, and that lack of popularity will affect the way they're paid.


I think that's what should motivate fighters to be active, not a referee stand up."

-- Joe Rogan, commeting on the atrocious stand up during the bout between Andrei Arlovski and Roy Nelson.
