Yeah, great judging on this fight. It was interesting how Chiesa was pretty much beating Lawrence up even though he was on the bottom. You could tell Lawrence was getting hurt because he kept covering up and trying to hide his face. The only reason Chiesa didn't get a sweep or a submission win in the first round was because Lawrence just froze and refused to potentially give up position in my opinion. He gave Chiesa nothing to really work with. He was just holding on hoping the judges would think he had control because he was on top. At least that's what it looked like.
