Wow nonstop grinding fight. Not the most entertaining but huge respect, thinking Borg may have done enough to get two rounds but I'm biased

30-27 Kenney is almost as bad as 30-26 Boetsch. Holy **** what a botch by 3 incompetent judges. Good lord.

There is no way he won two rounds. No way. You could give him the first, that's it.

Anyway I'm kinda glad borg lost, and thanks for talking me out of that bet Bruce!

i thought borg won on the weight of takedowns. 30-27 kenney is a joke.

Pretty sure borg outstruck him too. Landed multiple takedowns...ugh. Grapling was basically a push. That decision scares me for the rest of the card.

Lol @that decision @Bruce. Haha. You can say what you want but I don’t believe you or Kenney’s own mother thought he won that. Haha. I love it though cause Borg doesn’t deserve ****. He doesn’t wanna fight anymore but he was still robbed bro.
