Now sure, no one was expecting the bout to feature highlight reel spinning kicks, flying knees and gogoplata attempts, but the consensus was it would end quickly and violently. That didn’t happen.
Instead, both men were absolutely gassed by the end of round one, and somehow managed to fight into round three. Finally, an exhausted DADA hit the deck and the fight mercifully came to an end.
Here were some of the comments the pros made during and after the bout.
17 mins of my life I'll never get back… That's that bullshit right there!
