the buakaw fight was not what i expected. i knew it would be a war, and i knew Sato would make it to a decision, but damn a KO?
i've never seen Buakaw get KO'd.
i was very impressed with Gago Drago
i thought Masato would KO him, but im glad he made it to a decision. thats a big accomplishment.
Masato after defeating Gago Drago
"I knew from the first round that there was no way I'd lose because I could clearly see Drago's techniques and strategy," said Masato afterward. "But still I couldn't hit him cleanly, I think all the Dutch fighters have the same fighting style -- even if they are damaged by low kicks, they keep coming forward. I wasn't totally satisfied with tonight's fight because I was supposed to KO Drago -- I don't consider him a strong fighter so it's not special for me to win a decision against him."
very cocky. i like this, but i really wanted Gago to win that fight.
