True dat freemoney, the 2 fights i was worried about was Martinez and Simon and Simon really handled Yayha very very easily. 

And I thought Alvey would go the distance. He's been ko'd twice in a row. Not a good sign for a guy that is known for being durable.

I also thought yahya would put up more of a fight. Simon made him look slow and mediocre.
In the case of alvey it was clearly stopped to soon in the end but should of been stopped at the initial knock down and crute should of been given the walk off ko ala mark hunt.
By the way *** tapology? U really thought kassem was gonna win?
