I'm joined by AOL fan Athens area how whining -- magazine -- Kelly.
Markets -- -- -- -- dot com and I'm the bird chat or else ski from -- so Barry west sort of -- right away with were shot versus job -- Now a lot of people are saying that John was pointing within the third round I don't know if that's the case of the he's ran out of steam -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- He -- really -- striking and I there was a point where we're we're we're -- -- -- -- And I think he could've finished him but I think perhaps -- a back injury that we now find out a little more about that he was injured going to this -- he just lost -- Lost jazz and he was able to finish him and -- -- she -- spent less time trying to -- the judges in the crowd and and and focus more bring the fight -- was shot but fortunately.
It wasn't enough to in the fight.
I I really thought that this fight the -- were shot thought it was perfect.
Strategy to fight you're -- -- what do you think about that yet I mean because we you know if you try to stand and trade with the cheetah he's gonna pick his spots and you know he's a very effective striker.
If Rashad would -- had this game plan gets -- and 98 I think.
You might have had better results than he he he stay close to the -- each night out Muslim men and eventually taken down.
-- never seen a guy try to really do that in the UC thus far especially the last few fights so yet he could have had a better shot at beating him if he would have done so -- surprised at how easy.
Cover shot was taken down to -- No because oversight is a world class wrestler and plus if -- -- was going to display with a bad back it would make things a lot easier on him.
Set Kelly your C magazine now you guys can you get a lot of well a lot of leverage -- a lot of legs off of the story about Chevis it was sort of taunting was -- Evans -- a former champion in what we think he was doing there.
You know I know -- stranded trying to win the fight trying to -- -- is try to bring the fight to Rashad and also get in doing is he's also kind of backing off every time after he cannot confidently that -- I think like RS and he's frustrated.
He didn't look like the same Java so -- you know passable by its first two rounds just he was a lot maternity is backing up -- never seen -- do.
Four and I think you used I think he's frustrated I think I think you're right I mean I think that and markets like I might -- probably the fight -- it -- go like this are shot like come on despite its fight.
Yet he wasn't -- of like David it really with his.
Job to do that because he -- lost those first two wrapped.
First off I wanna say that this -- -- was awesome.
You know would -- with a leading up to it everybody was saying how disappointed where I totally enjoyed myself and I -- this fight card was amazing now your point of -- shot.
You know there was a couple moments I thought that he.
With imitating -- -- war in the way was playing them up against the cage.
And definitely was really effective in that strategy and yes catalysts almost taunting was -- really effectively just kind of him trying to -- himself up saying come on.
Coming -- -- because he knows that if he did hit a shot.
You know he -- had a chance of winning like -- that's the only chance he hacked or shot was knowing he was winning the I was being on the outside so we try to drawn in by saying come on but he was -- guest out.
From all the wrestling and that's why -- that missiles.
They had chat you know Larry else had something about maybe the Java trying to win just over -- by sort of playing to the crowd complaint to the judges.
Do you think that that's even a strategy worth worth looking at these days.
With the way to point systems are.
Get -- I don't think it works because it just shows that you wanna do something when you're when it comes down to.
Doing anything they -- doing all are doing is like trying to hype of the product that I -- I'm still here in the game and I wanna I wanna fight but -- once they start engaging they don't do anything.
I actually think it makes it look worse in my opinion and it does no good -- You know fighting is 90% mental for the army be trying to get the fighters heading get were shocked frustrated and -- Pullman -- his game.
And once he pulled in his game -- good does that do it.
I think it has anything to do with then the fact that he's trying to winnow the judges he wants a shot to engage him because he knew that his only chance.
Was by and knock out and that's why was trying -- -- -- and nothing to do with the judges area you're right he did have you -- -- third -- I mean -- -- even -- -- was -- He was brought he had a -- actually that he was gonna finish him.
But I just think that he he.
He had no party -- by that point he was tired.
And today yet nothing left of the third round -- deep into the third round and let me just say I don't think that -- that was his sole intention I think he's trying to get you know and and I think tell -- a look.
They don't look horribly coming out of that -- because he.
He sort of you know he -- -- personality because he was playing to the kinds of the judges and things like that I think people are like okay now he's got a little swagger so I don't think he was just thinking about that.
I I I -- -- we chat on that because.
At that point yet Hillary lost the fight in -- but -- big debate it's like it's like at the end of the fight -- when -- the boot that the bells.
Reward them what directive that you know the guy who who lost in his mind he will still put his hands up and sort of played of that the crowd and judges just trying to convince them maybe you know I mean they'll think it would never really works.
But that's -- fighters do and I don't blame them for to.
You can -- wrote quickly delivered and I -- health club to -- -- I who didn't have any problem is -- was Sam stout he looked amazingly despite Friday night took out what Joe is -- look like a standup clinic didn't it.
It's been a lot of fun watching -- -- mature as a fighter and since the Matt -- victory in 97 in this one I've been very impressed them hopefully maybe we can get Spencer Fisher part three in Montreal on May first brightness to fight nights in a row for -- out congratulations kid.
Round two coming up --
