Default Who's Loss Was Worse, Yushin Okami Or Thiago Alves?

Just curious.

Yushin Okami had Tim Boetsch beat in the third round and dropped his offense and Boetsch KO'ed him.

Thiago Alves had Martin Kampmann beat in the third round and had him rocked on the feet and he shot a for a takedown and Kampmann caught him in a guillotine choke and submitted him.

I think the Alves loss was worse, but its debatable as Kampmann is a Welterweight who on any day can beat any other top fighter in his weight class, Okami is a guy who is coming off a loss to the best Middleweight fighter in the history of MMA and arguably the best MMA fighter of all time, Anderson Silva in a UFC Middleweight Title fight and Boetsch is a fighter who's not even really that well known and a top ranked Middleweight.

IMO Okami's loss was just devastating. In his own country and in front of all the Japanese fans, plus he was dominating the entire fight and all of a sudden it was over. That was just a bad loss, hard to see as an Okami fan.
