  • Someone needs to call the police because Michael Webster just got robbed. This is corruption. Solomon Dacres is a punk.

  • I just watched the Dogbae fight mostly with the sound off. What load of crap. Pretty close fight. The Brit was more active, but hit gloves all night. Landed some good shots, but from what I saw it was a close bout. The other guy was getting tagged. When I watched with the sound on they barely even said anything when Dogbae landed a good shot.Terrible commentary. He was going to have to Ko him to get a draw. The knockdown was clearly a push. When Dogbae got a knockdown the ref was quick to call a slip. Clearly a gift. Maybe he won, but the Isaac had no chance with those BS scores. Typical

  • Ball-Dogboe was closer then what the cards read, but does anyone know how Dogboe keeps on getting title eliminators?

    • Its simple, he’s a short and tv friendly African fighter thats not expected to get a KO or favor on the score cards.
      Its a safe bet for your European fighter looking to build confidence.
