Damn I went 7-8 slaughtered.... I think James may have turned a corner preparing for and fighting in those bouts in Russia in ACA... His age isnt great it could catch up to him any year now but these are 2 solid wins over fairly young heavyweights in their real prime, and not scrub ones at all, Fortune was highly touted... He refuses to be denied in the most brutal sport even in his 40s
