Doesn't seem like a legit gripe. I was really impressed with Makdessi's boxing skills and his head movement in particular.
It was a defensive gameplan, but not so much so that I disliked the fight. If the Condit/Diaz fight had gone down at that pace I wouldn't have been nearly annoyed as I was. Hell, if Frankie Edgar boxed like that instead of how he has in his last several outtings I'd be a fan.
I enjoy a good counter-attack game as long as it doesn't get so defensive it feels like they're avoiding the fight.
Makdessi looked great. Hopefully we'll see more of that and maybe add a dash of killer instinct to push for a finish after battering his opponent with counters for 1-2 rounds.
As a man believes in his heart, so he is.
