Lack of experience in Silva's area.
- still lacking in cardio which leads me to believe he should cut a bit more weight on that frame and focus on HIT routines.
- keep composure even in very messy situations

Dong showed he wants to put on more exciting fights. But it was pretty reckless...hahaha! I'm almost certain KZ got into his mind.

Really wanted to see Erick Silva vs Rory.
I can't see Kim fighting this reckless again, he is lucky they both gassed, and that he was able to recover so fast. Like I said he is better than what he was last night

Well you can grab your own shorts.

Its like this, if I think this TD is going to allow you to win this round then whats the deterrent to grabbing the fence if I know I have a warning coming if I get caught?

As far as strategy goes its all good until Dana gets pissed and gets rid of you so there is always that possible negative outcome.

It would be kind of gnarly if a fighter left his finger behind in the fence one of these days lol.

Erick was a fool to be so reckless against Stun Gun. He was doing OK, but wrongly counted DHK out trying to finish him. That was a good fight, though.

That is how the guy fights and why he was winning in the first place.

Someone mentioned to "never bet against the Dong." This fight exemplifies that notion.

It's interesting to see normally tactical fighters throw with reckless abandonment. I think it could have been co-FOTN since no SOTN was awarded.

Ever notice he utilizes one type of strike and continues with it. The crane kick and then the spinning back punch.

Thinking about this fight still makes me laugh...haha.
