As the title says. I haven't seen one thread about Soti's KO loss to Raf Dos Anjos. I, for one, was SHOCKED to see him go down under the 1 minute mark. How do you all feel? Is it the end of the road for Soti? 0-2 in his last 2, and we all know how stacked the LW division is atm. I have a feeling he'll get one more fight. Thoughts?
he's been boxing way to much lately. When its a stand up fight someone is going to go down. just a matter of when. Has nothing to do with skill when most fighters are fairly evenly matched. It has more to do with luck and who lands a clean shot first
That was a flush shot that was landed, only a few fighters would not go out or be dazed by it. I don't know whats wrong with him though, was he too stiff in his striking? can't remember much from that fight but he left himself wide open for that counter.
You just can't leave yourself that wide open, he has to work on his movement and striking defense. I'd have to watch the fight again to really comment on it but I remember thinking that he looked a bit awkward in the striking, don't know if it relates to his movement or stiffness.
I think people really need to realise that Dos Anjos is actually just a very talented and unhyped fighter. He was in alot of peoples opinions beating Guida till the pressure on his jaw after it was broke made him submit.
Soti though isn't going to challenge in the top as so many are great wrestlers who can just choose where the fight takes place.
Big Soti fan and I think he still brings a lot to the division. A guy like Siver is just his kryptonite (World class striker with solid TDD). In MMA anything can happen and Soti tried to box with a brawler and loss the coin toss. Not taking away anything from Dos Anjos though, he put Soti away for sure.
I love how all the fans come out in droves after a KO saying "yeah ive been saying for a while that sotiropolous sucks dick" even though the reality is that everybody was hailing him as a future champion before the Siver fight.
MMA fans are quick to flip-flop and deny their past beliefs.
