I can't stand either one of these cheap-shot artists, but at least they have the decency to sac up and throw some actual punches. Take away all the homer votes and this is a draw. A pretty good fight all the way around, except for that last bit of nonsense with the silly attempted double leg takedown and the girly punches at Cooke while he's on his knees.
Richards with the win... Open your eyes people. Richards downed Cooke. Clearly. It was a good fight, don't get me wrong Cooke is a great instigator, and all around player, but Richards stood in and got the job done. As for the "cheap shots" (hitting a downed opponent) did anyone catch Cooke throw the cheap shots??? Again open your eyes, Cooke lost 'nuff said. Cooke is a good player, but one of the cheapest players in the game, if anyone was to get a few cheap shots in the league it would have to be him.
