Ground control isn't dismissed. It's just the bottom rung on the scoring hierarchy.

Fighting is about damage. And damage that can be seen takes precedence over that which can't.

Martinez might get a late finish if Almeida doesn't adjust

"You’d be surprised, Ariel, how many people do not know how to dance. But movement right, I like to say movemint with a m-i-n-t. With a little fresh mint leaf. I’m all about mints, keeping it fresh. I say, keep it fresh."

He's piecing him up with crisper striking and heavy kicks. Lot more volume as well.

RING RUST is real ... I don't care what Dom CRUZ says

Predictions: 5 of 11 Winners, 0 Perfect, 280 Points   |   Tied for 2472nd

Thomas Almeida  looks slow and undecided compared to how he used to fight. I think those injuries he had are not fully healed unless he is just not that sharp right now. 

Martinez is quick and slick with his strikes.

Almeida looks good when he gets aggressive. But he's just staying outside getting pieced up.

Almeida is NOT doing much ... he keeps going to that same well.  He is going to sleep if he doesnt make a change quickly.

Martinez now has the UD in the bag. Almeida needs a stoppage to win.

Yeah that Martinez jab is working effectively tonight. Nice range control.
