Ole has to kill himself to make 155. You can forget about either folayang or laursen ever going below 155. Impossible.

Thats what I took away too.

Folayang is really frustrating to watch because of his defense. Seemingly everyone he faces drops him during the fight. Ole landed some big shots and controlled parts of the fight with takedowns. I got the feeling that even though it was a close fight he was the more complete and better fighter.

I think the guy should move to WW instead. He losses an incredible amount of weight for the limit, it is quite noticeable. And he does not rely that much in speed as he does in power. My opinion is that he will have less gassing and speed problems at WW.

He'd definitely be more comfortable at 16-165 lbs but his stamina seemed ok last night, I don't think he needs to go anywhere.

Mate, I thought Ole was gassed after the first round, not sure if that was just the weight cut or just cardio issues. Pretty much after that his hands were by his waist and he was just going for bombs and takedowns. I thought it was very close but defintely not a 'robbery'.

Ole always fights like that these days, it's entertaining. He was tired but I wouldn't say he was gassed because he never stopped exchanging, he just paced himself a bit better this time around.

Ole Laursen WON the fight in my opionion. The judges (minus one) agreed. It was close, but not as close as many think. Laursen clearly won.

Ole landed the harder shots, knocked Folayang down, showed more aggression, had more takedowns and better ground work.

Some people were obviously impressed by all the ineffective spinning this and flying that coming from Folayang.

This.

To the TS -- How could you not see it coming? I was watching on the youtube archive and simply fast-forwarded through the decision announcement.

Laursen ended up on top in the last 10 seconds, he must have won, right?
