Bout to rewatch swick vs thiago.

Edited

Watching the fight a second time around i realize that the fight was closer then i thought. Id actually give the first round to Swick now also. I think he pushed the pace throughout the whole fight and had the better of the exchanges. Only thing Thiago did looking at it now is land those 3 leg kicks which i also dont think were nearly as bad as Rogan made it seem. Second round i also thought Swick was winning until he connected and rushed in. Thiago wasnt as impressive in this fight as i thought he was watching it the first time around. Also i love Swick but am i the only one thinking that he hasnt improved in atleast a year or 2 now??

Thiago looked very good... really impressed by him, and have been for some time. But was I alone in giving Swick the first round? I know some people on here were in disagreement with the scoring of the first.

I really liked this fight personally and I gained a lot of respect for Thiago, that choke was SICK.

They were both doing fairly well, and although I can see why you may have scored it for Swick, I scored it for Paulo.

It really all came down to Swick made the first REAL big mistake and it cost him the fight. He may have been able to recover if Thiago would have kept going for the KO. But he was crafty and sunk in a D'arce choke that no one saw coming, especially Swick

Agreed. And btw was anyone else shocked when Swick went for the takedown?
