Tell me about it. Imagine that same kid fighting against Crocop from 1990's - 2006. It was a closely contested fight with CC edging it with more strikes in the second and third til the KO. It was sooo telegraphed. Whatever happened to clinching then kicking or throwing the 1, 2, followed by a mid kick setting up for a LHK. His level of fighting has gone down hill dramatically. I mean losing to Cheick and Mir. It's painful...it really is.
He should have retired with the Pat Barry win.
