Maz didn't do a bad job in this fight Hicks is just really a tough guy and wouldn't get put down for a long time.
I agree, he is a very tough guy. Even when the fight was finally stopped, he was still conscious. He showed an excellent chin, he just needs to work on his recovering. He couldn't regain his composure and seemed to desperate for that takedown when he was hurt which is a natural reaction from anyone who gets rocked.
Impressive win for Varner.
