    This was a strange fight between Thiago Santos vs Johnny Walker where both guys were somewhat timid but Walker just feinted the whole fight. What happened and how did John Kavanaugh have a role in it?

    Walker has a glass chin and not much talent. Santos can hit and also has not much talent. LHW is like HW in UFC it's a battle of which one is the shittiest loses. Santos has stunk the place out doing next to nothing since his knee injury.

    No. Walker is fighting way smarter than he did before, Walker a few fights ago would have been KO'd in the first round as opposed to losing a close and competitive decision.

    Just how dumb does a trainer have to be to state that his fighter is UP going into the 5th rd when he CLEARLY lost at LEAST rd 2 and 3 to Santos. At absolute best it was 2-2 going into the 5th. The trainer SHOULD have made it crystal clear to Walker that he 100 % MUST win rd 5 to possibly get the judges decision.

    He couldn`t land much after feinting though.
