I hate the fact that judges can still a win at any moment, thats a big problem with this sport! Should be 5 judges, will be harder to corupt them. 

I'm glad decision goes right tonight (until now)

I don’t think perry will get slept and he’s tough as hell but that nose will be a problem imo. All it takes is a few clean shots before a referee considers stopping it

I expected heinisch to go to the takedown sooner. Surely he’s watched enough of his opponents fights to know he fades when a pace is put on him
