Man, what a mess of a fight. Not a fan of either guy, I don't hate them either but this fight should be redone. I can't help but feel that the only reason Costa won this is bad luck (broken hand) an accidental headbutt and an eyepoke that basically blinded Boetsch.

Yah that certainly helped. But I remember Costa got his eye poked pretty badly in one of his fights and it enraged em that he ended up finishing his opponent...haah.

I've seen an interesting pattern. Most fighters who get fouled usually end up losing. They're unable to recuperate or do not take the full five minutes alotted. Depending on the injury, I'd get a massage lady, drink of water, do some stretching and relax for the full five minutes to recuperate.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

^^^^That and also someone could call a broken foot a serious "circumstance" in favor of the winner.

Broken hands are not caused by bad luck (unless it's because the fighter fell and broke it when hitting the ground or something like that). Hands break because of bad technique and/or too much excessive force. But you have to remember that the same force delivered in a punch to do damage on the opponent is also working on the hand itself.

Thanks for the heads up, even though in the standard gross way.
In my original language it's written "circunstancia". That's where the misspelling came from.
I've changed it already.

Perfect example of karma. You want to fight like an utter bitch in your last fight Boetsch? Prepare to suffer the inevitable punishment. Get trashed.

Hector fought like a bitch too.

It wasn't like we were watching Nate Quarry V Kalib Starnes again.

I'd like to see a rematch TBH, there are still too many question marks surrounding the result.

Hector was trying to throw bombs at least and got a couple of nice WWE style slams on Boetsch. Tim was content to run around and play tag the leg for 15 minutes. He wanted noting to do with engaging against Lombard, he fought like a bitch and karma prevailed in the end. I hope the rematch never happens, and I hope that Tim is on the facebook prelims for his next fight.

Okay so you clearly don't like Boetsch. I don't have a problem with him, not really a fan either. He didn't choose to win the decision, blame the judges for awarding him the win.

What sort of fight do you want for Costa next then? I don't think he deserves the boost a MW would get for smashing Boetsch at the moment due to the controversy surrounding the result.
