I thought Denis looked great in that fight, up until he dove into a triangle. If we want to talk about a bad performance, we'd have to bring up JZ's.. that was abysmal.
Denis looked horrid, he lagged on that Kimura for two minutes and literally begged Gegard to sub him.
JZ looked great but he had no answer to Aoki's awesome gameplan. Atleast JZ tried his best to crush Aoki's skull every chance he got and escaped that beautiful omaplatte > armbar perfectly.
