    I think Paulie bought shame on himself in his actions in the build up to the fight and how he fought after all his **** talk but apart from that I don't see to many people remembering this fight at all.
    As for Cejudos stupid tweet I wouldn't judge the rest of the fighters based on this idiot who lately especially since winning the UFC title has taken on some kind of WWE like persona and most of his tweets are cringe worthy

    That's fine you don't like MMA I can understand your reasons as we all have different tastes on what we want to watch,boxing is easily my favorite sport but I also enjoy watching other high level combat sports but mainly stand up fighting(punching,kicking,kneeing elbows etc.) and i find wrestling to be totally boring and the worst part of mma.
    You can add Tim Sylvia to the list of fighters packing total glass jaws, he only had the success he did because most of the best Heavyweights in that era were fighting outside of the UFC for PRIDE in japan,at Heavyweight as you know anything can happen in either sport when 1 shot can end it and I don't see how 9 seconds and 1 punch proved nothing other then what was known going in about Sylvias Jaw and Mercers power.

    I was a wrestler before I boxed or grappled later on and understand the skills and moves but exciting? no! but boxing or any striking sport the excitement is there. Your observation is exactly why I think BKFC will do well moving forward....go to a wrestling or grappling tournament and their aren't many fans in comparison....boxing is sometimes the same way on smaller shows...MMA shows in a cage live are horrible to watch you can't see any of the subtle grappling mastery and the cage blocks a lot of the view when striking.....BKFC is IMO insight into what boxing was like before gloves......no doubt faster paced because of the 2 minute rounds and definitive round limit

    Yeah I agree before I did some BJJ the only grappling etc I ever watched outside of MMA had been WWE :lol: but I now have a better appreciation and understanding of what's going on with the techniques and intricacies involved like I do in boxing, now I even watch some occasional high level BJJ fights/tournaments when i get a chance.

    There is some aspects of BKFC I love like rewarding aggression but since it's only 5 rounds I think at least the main event and biggest fights should be 3 minutes

    What part of it was lucky? Mercer trained his whole life to land punches like that, threw it with the full intent of landing it that way and to a chin that’s not used to taking world class boxers punch. And won. What’s “lucky” about it?

    Boxing vs MMA can be entertaining, but it's also a bit boring when you take it too seriously imo. It's like Babe Ruth vs Michael Jordan. Who was best? Well, Ruth was best at baseball and Jordan was best at basketball. All the rest is just showbiz.

    A kick boxer knocked out Rousey on her arse with a headkick. How does boxing claim that?

    But she was a kickboxing champion before that trained Dutch Thai style. And she sparked her with a kick.

    It's no contest - the king of standup is Muay Thai.

    I watched the fight close 5 x and can’t find 1 round to give to artem. As a matter of fact the fight was boring because artem lacked the skill to land more then 5 punches in 5 rounds.
    Pathetic

    Love to see some footage of lobos hurting and staggering paulie.
    You mean when lo oc wrecklessly charged in, got hit with a check hook, and knocked paulie off balance with his aggression?
    Just lol
    Hurt and staggers never happened.
    Fake news!
    Worse then trump and Russian collusion.

    I think most knew he would have problems here due to a) him being shot and B) his style never being great for BK to begin with. Say what you want about Lobov but hes if nothing else tough. Paulie slept on him and let his arrogance get the better of himself.

    Paulie won every round. If anything I’d say he underestimated artems audience and chance for robbery because of all the money artem brought in. The fight went pretty much as I thought it would. Artem landed 5 shots tops in 5 rounds. I knew paulie would Outland him easy every round and not be able to hurt him.
