Props that he took the fight seriously and I can see that he's trained. Imagine if we all fought in a pro fight...we'd probably wouldn't fare much differently. Sparring in the gym and fighting with a live audience is a huge contrast. Being in a live show and putting it on I could feel the energy just being a spectator. I was just putting myself in Bautista's shoes.
Of course his stand up vs any other fighter was very rudimentary. But he got the win and he remained fairly composed where most of his contemporaries go ballz out which in my mind is a show of inexperience. It's about pacing and strategizing.
Clyde's right about his statement above...
Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.
Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
