It's because he needed the takedown and Mr. "Look into it" sounded like an amateur doing so.
I'm sad for Tony. Spent most of his camp preparing for a grappler, cuts weight twice, gets bad corner advice, gets fucked up royally in a loss that snaps his insane winning streak, lastly it will rob him of getting at Khabib.
He might have a chance in the future but it will never be the same for obvious reasons.

Bravo is not a good cornerman. He is the opposite of John Donhnananhner in terms of in fight cornering.
If I was getting my ass beat very badly and the best advice i get is "maybe its time to try an imanari roll" I would be looking around like are you being serious? that's all?
"Hey Tony, this dude is finishing a lot of his combinations with a left hook, you are losing the striking battles, next time he is gearing up for that combination instead of trying to roll away instead time the hook at the end with a double leg of your own."
