    That's a bit much. Paulie probably did enough to win a close decision but still didn't do a whole lot in there. It was closer than it should have been.

    I agree totally I had Paulie just ahead but he did nothing and with the different rule set awarding aggression it certainly wasn't a robbery and Paulie certainly didn't win every round like i've heard several people keep saying

    I’ll take 10 weak jabs over aggression and punching air all night. That’s just me. You score that fight round by round and tell me what round artem won. He got outlanded every round.
    It is what it is. No surprises. We knew artem didn’t have the skill to hit malignaggi consistently and we knew malignaggi didn’t have the power to hurt artem. That’s exactly what we got. The fight wasn’t really close though. The fight was boring because artem lacked the skill to hit paulie.

    In no form of combat sports is aggression worth more points then punches landed. The argument that it isn’t boxing is negated by the fact he never hurt paulie and landed 5 clean punches the entire fight.

    Yes. I know Paulie is shot and old, but Artem is a bum. After all the trash talk, it's embarrassing.

    Paulie was retired too though, so it's not that bad.

    Paulie is an ******* so good for Artem.

    Your wrong you and others mistakenly scored it like normal a boxing fight,the promoter at the previous event made it clear to those unaware what they wanted and he even tried cutting a fighters pay because of how negative he fought which was just like Paulie who fought like a ***** after all the **** he did before the fight

    Combat sports should most definitely take aggression in to consideration more or even punish negative fighting like PRIDE used to with it's yellow cards

    In zero combat sports is being aggressive and landing 5 shots none of which put paulie down or hurt him worth 50 jabs, check hooks, and bodyshots. Boxing, mma, or bare knuckle. Been studying bare knuckle since masvidal days.
    Love him or hate him he beat artem.

    The promoter picks and chooses who he wants to punish depending on the house fighter.
    Sam shewmaker vs Arnold Adams
    They were pushing Sam. He wouldn’t engage. Adams pressed the fight. Adams won easy and hasn’t fought since. Shewmaker has fought 3 x since. Why wasn’t Sam punished? He’s the house fighter like artem. It’s all about the money.

    Artem won a canelo business type decision that didn’t tell the story of the fight.
    Like I said, nothing anybody didn’t expect. No surprises.

    Totally disagree with your breakdown of the fight,at best Paulie won it rounds 3-2 but imo Lobov was only 1 there to fight and while he may of missed with a lot he landed enough combined with his aggression to win a close fight,even some of the boxing media were able to give Lobov a bit more credit then you have.
    Paulie gets zero sympathy from most because he fought like a ***** which looked even worse due to all the **** he talked combined with his scumbag tactics in the lead up to the fight

    If you don't throw punches you don't win fights. When he did throw punches he did look the more skilled fighter but he appeared to me to be scared to engage which is laughable when he in the boxer who was a 2 weight world champ and he was fighting an mma journeyman. Lobov basically outworked him in a close fight. Also when rounds are only 2 minutes long you need to get busy and score points. A lot of the rounds were hard to score with little quality happening and then in rd 5 Paulie did absolutely nothing. What was he thinking ?

    I think so.

    You would need to understand MMA to know that Artem was a complete nobody. Paulie was a top guy, like it or not.

    Artem never went and fought the equivalent of Hatton or Cotto. Know why? Because he wasn't good enough! He is known more for being Connor's friend than anything else.

    Paulie, in theory, is light years ahead of the guy in terms of hands. Just goes to show that the gap between MMA guys and Boxers has shrunk a hell of a lot in the last 30 years, and more than Boxers care to admit for.
