Jrock really just took the fight to the bigger man and I really liked this attitude.

The loss he suffered helped him because he know he's not gonna get many more chances so he went out there and really put it all on the line. Didn't see that in a while. Unfortunately most of what we've been getting lately are fighters playing it too safe and then losing decisions and then crying robbery. Great to see fighters taking matters into their own hands for once and really taking the title from the champion.
... right... on another hand: it was mostly a clean fight, as Hurd fought clean as well... Hurd did little of notice in the inside -- mostly, I guess, because he looked drained and weak and it seemed he was trying to save his energy for the late rounds... And these, I think, worked perfectly in J-Rock's favor...

... Ward went "inside" only vs stronger, better opponents (Kessler, Kovalev)... and Ward's "inside game" rather was a form of wrestling, actually...
