Just watched the Saito/Kloike fight. My man Saito got nut kicked for each testicle in the first minute. They were two hard shots and there's no penalty? He's winning over the first two rounds then in the third goes for a takedown and subsequently a d'arce. What a heartbreaker and I really wanted to hit that pick.
