Jason Brilz vs. Lil Nog was one of those bouts that you sort of scratch your head and are forced to accept the outcome. Perhaps Lil Nog got the nod because he’s named after a mythological creature, in which case that would be blatantly bias. Or maybe it’s just that Lil Nog worked a harder than Brilz for the victory. In fact, Jason tends to think the latter.
In an interview with Shambala Sports, Jason admits the the judges decision was the correct one and he doesn’t plan on seeking a rematch with Lil Nog anytime soon.
“I don’t like rematches. I’ll face whoever Joe Silva would like me to face, and I’m not going to duck anyone, however I’m not going to seek the rematch with Nogueira. He beat me, the judges call was the correct one.”
I think it was Nick Diaz who said ‘Every fighter should think they won every unanimous and split decision’. Then again, Nick Diaz also said ‘My fight career has gotten in the way of my marijuana smoking’. That’s deep. [Source]
