dominik cruz made an argument, that i can kind of live with on ESPN.
Volk actively switched up his gameplan and braught a different aspect of an MMA fight to a kickboxing match. He explained that judges could value that like we maybe dont. and given the fact that volk probably won the championship rounds made them give the fight to volk.
i had it 3-2 max with a razor sharp 3rd round, thats why i said i could live with a draw. it wasnt a robbery but i still think max did enough. i value knocksdowns over takedowns, taht dont lead to dominat position or ground and pound or anything, really.
but judging a fight like that is super hard. so cant really blame the judges here.
it just sucks because if we had it 1-1, we could make an easy trilogy, let yair fight zhabit and zombie vs kattar/ortega and figure out whos the next real contender. because at the moment its hard to say whos behind Volk and Max as a clear contender.
