(tweeking on yeast and wheat)

This fight has been so scramble and sub attempt heavy that I'm not surprised both these dudes are completely gassed. If this goes to decision I have no idea how I'd score it, or how these downie judges will

massive swing & miss for me on this fight. Was 97% sure this fight would not go to DEC. Shows what I know. Still an awesome scrap! 

These constant back & forth scrambles have been incredible IMO

Meerschaert won that fight tbh. It wasn't good, but yeah, overall he controlled it.
