Great fight, I knew that a stong striker would be Soti's downfall, but hell he did well to last the whole fight, and was landing some of his own. After the first round I was expecting the 2nd to be quite short.

Same. I was impressed with Soti's heart and will to fight on, even after getting dropped like three times, he hung in there.

The suspicions I had about Soti came to life last night. Weak wrestling and over rated striking.

Soti's takedown attempts were piss weak. He had a perfect chance in the 1st when he caught Sivers leg but couldn't get him down. I would have liked to see him take a step back and yank the leg hard with him, then left Sivers leg as high as he can and run forward. Guaranteed takedown against most guys!

Man, that was an awesome moment for me. When Siver started hopping on one leg and punching Soti I knew there was no way Soti was going to take Dennis down.

i think soti needs to work on his take downs, if he doesn't have the power to drive and shoot, maybe some judo would be good?

also i think he lost out going for weak take downs, in the 2nd when he was working his jab and head movement he won the round purely with his striking, the other 2 rounds when he went after more take downs he lost.

anyway even tho he lost i was impressed by his striking in the 2nd, and hopefully he keeps improving his striking to the point where he doesn't have to desperately try to get it to the ground via take down, hell rocking someone is the best take down imo.

hopefully he trains his wrestling hard also

even calling it wrestling is upgrading it from what it really was..... some of the crappiest BJJ style single legs ive ever seen in my life. Truely embarrassing for such a high level BJJ player.


This is why Shields is right, AJJ is the future. BJJ - wrestling = nothing

Siver being stronger along with Soti's god awful takedown attempts lost Soti the fight. He needs to work on his wrestling. The BJJ takedowns are nowhere near as effective at this level of competition.

Should have been either Siver 29-28 or a draw. The third round was really close I felt like maybe Siver edged it.

Siver is turning into a beast, I like the thought of a Miller or maybe a Dunham fight next for him, he's really starting to come into his own now and showing us what he can do.

i thought siver won, I was nervous about the judges.

Another hype train bites the dust. when will mma fans learn?

They all lose, no shame in it.
