    Yeah that was shocking, of all the punches to take a dive on he chose one that didn't even connect. Even if that grazed him, it would have been the slightest of grazes and there would be zero concussive force. I just figured they wanted Ghita fresh for the finals, especially since Saki lost.

    I enjoyed the fights. Would rather watch Muay Tai with the sweeps and knees (granted I don't watch a lot of that either), but overall enjoyed it. Wonder if Glory is happy about Sprong being in MMA. Honestly the only reason I watched it was because of Sprong. They owe him at least one viewer's viewing of the view.

    Not sure about the suspect punch. I thought roufus said it grazed the temple? I couldn't tell.

    Production was pretty sharp.

    That could work too. I'm sure after a first round of his leg kicks, he'd definitely take a wrestlers legs out and weaken those td attempts.

    Don't you think that had more to do with his wrestling background (sitting out)?

    Right now I consider Tyrone Spong the scariest fuckin' dude on the planet.
    I'd rather run through Traffic on the Freeway blindfolded than be put in a ring with Spong.

    I agree but one can hope. If a guy like could get his tdd to where he feels he can confidently let his hands and feet go, I'd hate to be his opponent.
