Yeah, during the first and second round I was yelling for him to break and start throwing bombs. It was so frustrating, I hate it when a fighter feels like he has to prove that he can hang in the other guys strength area, it very rarely works out well.
You must not have seen Herman's fights, his ground game is his "strength area" and his striking is just as poor as Jake's.
Did you think Ed had a reasonable expectation of stopping Jake via stand up or decision? B/C Hendo couldn't stop him peeps so I don't think Herman could have either.
