Strikeforce Barnett vs Cormier: Josh Thomson Felt He Won, but Fell Just Short (Post Video)


Josh Thomson StrikeforceIt’s a cliché nearly as old as the sport itself, “don’t leave the fight in the hands of the judges.”

Yet, it happens time and time again. So who is to blame when the judges’ decision doesn’t go the way you want it to? You.

Check out what Josh Thomson had to say at Saturday night’s post-fight press conference…
