I randomly heard cheers in the middle of the fight when was no action in the octagon, I wonder if it was because of Pat Barry lol, he's the man
Same here - I wasn't very enthused early on and was disappointed when Dodson just started winging single punches. His technique got so sloppy at one point that he stumbled across the octagon. I wouldn't have booed if I were there, but I certainly understand how a more knowledgeable fan would be disappointed in the approach.
In fact, I think the fans being called "educated" are just people rooting for a KO. I'm more impressed by technique.
