Just goes to show that it's hard to gauge a fighter's skills when he gets a quick knock out. I know fans love a knock out and are quick to jump on a fighter's bandwagon when he makes quick work of a solid fighter, but it only really shows that he has power. It's like Sokoudjou or Houston Alexander. People were quick to hype them up back in the day because of their power, but their hype ended just as fast as it began when fighters were able to withstand their early assault. The poll really shouldn't have been this close given him unproven Siyar was and because of what history has shown us. Dong Hyun Kim completely out classed him and showed that he wasn't yet a contender or ready for that next level. Give Siyar some time to improve.
Now I'll just wait for the next guy to come in randomly and knock out a solid fighter in under a minute. A lot of people will once again prematurely jump on to his train. I know I've been guilty of this before too, but I wonder when some of us will learn.
