    Good challengers card. The fights went off pretty well, but again bad judging. Fodor taking out Tarzan like he did was very impressive, but i’d say Tarzan needs to seriously work the cardio.
    Wayne SHOULD have won this fight but the judges gave it to Douglas for being able to get hit in the head more times and having bad takedown attempts I guess. Very good fight though for Wayne.
    Wilcox should get a legit guy in his next fight so congrats to him, Damm was overmatched and I am glad they didnt let it go on.
    Very odd moment where both main event fighters are out waiting to fight and the ringside doctors arn’t there. Fighters are waiting for about 5 minutes staring at each other but no DR.
