Whatever Lapin is doing for him, isn't working.
Don't think the jaws are as equally bad. I mean, Wlad was going down after love taps and was typically hurt and barely able to continue. This is why he totally had to alter his style and not get hit nearly as much. I haven't seen that from Szpilka and I don't think there is a need for him to make such drastic changes to his style. I don't think he could either, because he doesn't have the reach nor the height for that. I don't understand why people can't accept a fighter going down after a solid punch without resorting to extreme and premature judgements regarding his chin. Szpilka probably took that punch as well as many other fighters would. We found out he doesn't have an iron chin, but does that automatically entail he has a glass one?
