Not sure if that upper landed or not to be honest it looked like it did bounce off his forehead a bit. but I still contest Zelenoffs dive against Hartley takes the cake

I think maybe the hook landed, the next missed, then the dudes foot slipped causing him to go down, where he stayed... ?

What a joke of a fight, just looking at their two silhouettes.

Does anyone know at what point in the first round did this occur?

Probably a dive, but -
I agree with Bazooka that it MIGHT have landed. (Also with Nonito that a prior punch may have softened him up. You'd need to zoom in & run it in slo-mo to be sure, and even then the angle is probably wrong.

Edwards threw a very odd uppercut, as he sort of launched it forward first.

It MAY have hit the opponents' head, then glanced upwards, making it look like it went up the entire tiime and thus missing.

You do see the opponents' head twist sideways & back, at exactly the right time.. While even that looks fake, it would have been some incredibly good timing and physical positioning to pull it off.

I possibly could have been a real shot, with simply a too-distant camera & a bad angle. It wouldn't be the first time.

Cory "Spare Tire" Briggs is the new de facto gatekeeper.

According to Edwards, beating him makes you ready for a Klitschko!

-----------------

Interesting guy, though:

In the NFL, he was 6'4", 273 lbs and did the 40 yard dash in 4.81 seconds !

His career with the vikings looks pretty impressive, on paper at least. (I don't follow football.) - But then he gets signed to a 5 year contract with the Falcons, hardly plays for the first year, and gets released in the second year, "due to his poor attitude."

WTF?

So now he's fighting fat midgets & calling out Vitali.

You know, I kinda' like this guy!
