    What a ****ing head kick though!


    Also, Usman looked as if he had been robbed? He lost. First round was

    10-8 Chimaev
    9-10 Usman
    10-9 Chimaev? Or even.

    The takedown in the last sealed it. Best case scenario a draw which one judge gave it. But Usman's reaction was as if he actually won the fight..

    He was but it looked like he was trying to grab a hold and survive as the ref dived in

    He was gone Serge. He wouldn't have been strong enough to even grip on. He was going to cop another 10 pointless shots and be rendered unconcious.

    As I said, it looked like he was trying to grab a hold to me and the shots he was eating weren't that hard but I will concede I didn't have my glasses on at the time and it was blurry

    Usually a kick like that Volk reacts quicker and avoids them, he had Yair throwing kicks at him and he was ready for them.
    No sparring for a long time probably had his reflexes off a bit.

    Usman with a full camp and 5 rounds likely beats Chimaev.

    Volk likewise looked flat, drained and unprepared. Full camp he likely replicates the first fight at the very least. Hopefully future Abu Dhabi cards aren't marred by similar circumstances. This just leaves a bad taste.

    Volk very emotional post fight. That's what I love about him. He's real as ****.
