I've got to say Fedor was lucky he didn't get a point taken away. Technically he didn't hold the ropes but he almost wrapped his arm around the rope instead. I'm not convinced Lindland would have won anyways if he got the takedown but it was a smart veteran move by Fedor.
He was bleeding pretty bad after as well but i'm pretty sure that just opened up his old cut from when he got a head butt from Nogueira.
I agree that they need to be far more consistent. In fact, I feel there should be predetermined penalties for each infraction. But at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is that you need to expect to be punished when you cheat - and that is what taking a banned substance is.
I agree that he should be punished just not so severely. What really pisses me off and what I was referring to with that comment is the people on some of the forums claiming Diaz's win wasn't legit because he had weed in his system which is ludicrous. Pot is not performence enhancing especially when you smoke it a week before the fight. Diaz proved he was the better fighter on that night.

I don't like the complete discretionary powers in this considering how much in bed the UFC is with NSAC.
lol.. not that I am going to order it, but maybe you should post stuff like this a little different next time?
What do you mean? If it was on Sherdog that's one thing but I doubt anyone was going to order Bodog anyways. If its PRIDE or UFC that's one thing I wouldn't want to be spoiled about the results but the smaller shows I don't really care.
