    Gotta admit he’s got a really strong core just by taking a hit from a much bigger man. But what the hell is he doing taking body blows from a big strongman like the Mountain, which could potentially cause an injury and POSTPONE his upcoming fight again?

    Teo and his father have the combined IQ of a churro.

    "Due to circumstances WITHIN our control, this fight has been postponed to 2023".

    Neither man would survive a body stab from Inoue.

    I know it's all for show but I can't help but SMH at this. :ohno
    You have a fight lined up that's been postponed constantly, why risk suffering injury and having it canceled again? Imagine if that guy was an actual boxer with better punching technique. He'd probably be suffering from internal bleeding.

    Why would you risk getting hurt and having your fight postponed by taking a punch from a strongman? Just to prove how tough you are?

    Lopez is lucky Bjornsson's punch technique is awful.

    It was a winging shot. The guy didn't actually put his entire weight behind it. But still very stupid for Teo to pull such a stunt.

    Bjornsson might be big and muscley, but he throws arm punches with nothing on them. I've seen him
    box; dude is terrible. A decent middleweight could outbox and maybe stop him.

    The preview pic looked like a little malnourished child punching one of those Bob dolls.
