To see a match won under those circumstances is like trying to kill the sport from within..Yes its important to get the W but if you aint winning fans or if u style is forgettable whats the point..Everyone could fight like that but the sport would never grow if they did
I can understand that because you saw the fighter you were rooting for get beat by a tactic you dispised. I too was cheering for and betting on Huerta to win. But I would say "boring" is not the best adjective to describe it. I'd say I was more "disappointed" by Huerta's performance. I'd argue that it wasn't just the striking tactics by florian that beat huerta though. I thought the difference was the fact that florian was able to repeatedly take huerta down. Regardless, the fight had roger pushing the pace and florian nullifying him. I'd say that was exciting! To me a borefest is when nothing happens and/or its slow as hell. Which I can't say any huerta or florian fights are.
