Yeah, kickboxing fights are so often real close like that. It sucks that one of them has to lose, when in reality, neither of them really lost the fight.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Damn, Andy is so damn fluid, I love his movements, but his boxing was surprisingly sloppy in this one.

Giorgio didn't wow me in this one, but he looked sharp as hell, and did sort of KD Andy in the 3rd (?) I believe.

I still think Artur would beat Giorgio though. As MLS said, he's got some great strength, and good reach.

Giorgio was definitely looking to just counter in this fight and to me Andy was using his full game because he was getting caught sometimes coming in. He didn't work the body or use his right kick as much as he normally does.

Artur will pressure Giorgio and use everything he's got because he has a chin that will hold up and the power to hurt Giorgio. Giorgio didn't really want to clinch with Andy and got out of out, not gonna be able to do that with Artur because of his strength. And Artur can use his nasty, nasty hooks to the body to slow Giorgio down.

And to me this looks like a legit kd

Got to give it to Andy though dude will fight anyone and he fought Giorgio in his backyard, have to respect that.

Wow I have to hand it to Girgio, I think he pulled it off. Very close, though, as others have said.

Not really too pleased because i lost 300k on this, but we have Artur to look forward to now!
