Good night of fights indeed. Can't wait for Oliveira vs Gaethje!

Valdez even if he tried, it is not that he received great indications in his corner (For those who consider Eddy Reynoso an elite coach, we will see in Ruiz's fight against Ortiz) Shakur demonstrated his technical superiority and honestly he would easily beat Gutierrez and Ogawa (At that weight it could be complicated by Garcia, who has already beaten Colbert, who is also elusive). The fight could have been more exciting, but that would have been possible if Valdez could have complicated Shakur, but he couldn't. Shakur made the work plan for him, maybe in the 9th or 10th round he could have been closer to the TKO, but Valdez is a tough fighter and also going for the KO so much could open up good spaces for Valdez.
Personally, although many say that Haney (mainly because of the physical resemblance), I think that Stevenson is the one who most resembles Floyd (especially in his fighting style). A fight between Tank (Floyd's protégé) vs. would make a lot of sense in the future. Shakur (the new Floyd).
