    The size difference was ridiculous. Did they even have official weigh ins. Still think Rizin should have had nasukawa shoot on Floyd.

    That’s exactly how Fury-Joshua would go down. Fury laughing and smiling at Joshua throwing comedic jabs before knocking the bodybuilder spark out.

    I don’t think anyone thought Floyd would viciously knock out Tenshin inside a round. That was a fairly ridiculous outcome and I’m not sure what the **** Rizin was thinking in retrospect. Floyd didn’t train for this at all, and looked it, and embarrassed an entire organization lol

    Just goes to show the gulf between MMA striking and boxing. Tenshin didn't see that left coming and was completely scrambled. Now crying like a baby in the ring.

    Just lmfao. You realise if they even attempted this, Leonard Ellerbe would storm the ring with knuckle dusters and beat the **** out of everyone. These Rizin guys are not stupid.

    Bad booking for sure. It was only worth the pay off if tenshin came out looking a star and that was only gonna happen if he went and and started throwing kicks.

    Feel sorry for the dude.

    Floyd didn’t even look that diminished skill wise, though it’s very hard to tell from this fight lol. He wasn’t that much slower than Tenshin. It was a total mismatch considering the size. I definitely feel for Tenshin, I’m pretty sure Rizin thought the worst that could happen was that he’d get schooled for 3 rounds and go home slightly embarrassed but without an obvious loss since no winner would be declared. But this turned into an absolute nightmare for everyone involved. Takeru and K1 are soaring high right now

    Fcuk me get a grip will you all, the bout was clearly WWE material. If Froid was serious about fighting he would have had a proper bout.

    The guy weighs 20-30 lbs less than Void. Imagine Void vs. Dogboe in boxing. Same ****. This was always a farce. The chicken refused anything but boxing rules.

    I'd have liked to see him have the balls to take that $90 Mil to fight the kid in 4oz gloves in front of a small handful of businessmen and Yakuza. Floyd has no balls though. He was so much bigger, he could have probably knocked the kid out before he got kicked more than once.

    Yeah, it lent the proceedings that extra little touch of legitimacy and decorum...all that was missing was Michael Buffer.
