Well, obviously I was wrong. Kudos to those of you who predicted Escudero's win. It sure wasn't an exciting or even dominating fight, just a "victory." Did he take the easy way out? ..Yes Did he do the smart thing? ..Well, it can be argued. He did JUST enough to win the contract and money and didn't take much of a chance, he went in with the gameplan of laying around on him and taking him down to win point wise and "get in there & get out," money made, deal done. But it can be argued, quite persuasively, that if he had gone in there and stood up swinging (or even some action-packed ground-n-pound) then though he would've taken a bigger chance, if he had won he would have gotten a lot more popularity and fights in the future. People want to see exciting fights, its a fact, he got the "win", the money, & the contract BUT....
I guarantee you Junie Browning will have a much more fruitful and succesful career due to his performance tonight compared to Efrain's. He'll get bigger & better fights almost right off the bat.
ALSO, Junie sure looked like the bum he was tonight, huh?
