[QUOTE=LOCOMEX89;17025588]Good fight between these warriors. Kamegai wasn't going to leave it in the judges hands this fight. I bet Kamegai fights either Sadam Ali next or Eddie Gomez. As for Soto Karass the end is approaching. I think a fight…

That **** was brutal. Pretty one sided imo. They shoulda stopped it a couple rounds before. Absolute respect for karass getting up but wasnt the best decision
