@ Random 31% o0f the Tap community backed him, he was  even odds with the bookies, and really he would have lost if Johnson had done the cheese thing and just stayed on the outside for the last 40 seconds or whatnot, so y'know... not highly underestimated, anyway.

Glad he won by KO/TKO though, paid for some of my ****tier bets.

I thought Holland lost. That fight was ridiculously sloppy and kinda hard to score I guess though. Holland’s hips were terrible. They were never in the right place grappling and he constantly conceded positions because of it. Borg was flat out robbed. That decision was as bad as it gets.
