A lot of sour grapes here. Whittaker won. Deal with it.
He couldnt do shit with it? Whittaker took a serious beating. More than once he was in survival mode.
You could say Covington didnt do shit with his takedown-attempts. It still won him.the fight.
But Romero was landing huge shots and did damage. I guess you saw the slomo.
The "serious beating" happened because of the power shots that Romero was able to land while the fight was still standing. So Kizzo was right, Romero couldn't do shit even with the knock down as he failed to capitalize on the knock down. Oh and Covington didn't just go for take down attempts, he actually got the take downs several times. THAT is why he won the fight, because he controlled the pace of the fight in the first and second which cost RDA a lot of gas, which meant that Covington was able to continue to pour it on, and RDA was unable to really do anything worthwhile about it. Are you sure you were watching those two fights?
