What's up with the last pic? Did the guy in the white shirt deliberately pull up one of his sleeves to show off his biceps? :rofl:

I think Burgos will get KOed in this one. Martinez is too resilient and I dont think Burgos will be putting him out. And old ass Cruz gave him all he could handle and also put him on his ass.
