Hes an exciting fighter but hes lucky he was the champ as long as he was, VERY lucky
I am a Gil supporter, he's an awesome fighter and I love watching him fight but... seriously, that decision was far from a clear cut win for him. I gave it to Benson. Gil was clearly outstruck but the fact that he was the one going forward most of the time gave an impression of superiority that really wasn't the case. He wasn't landing shit and Benson outworked him. Close, but I can't say that was an undeserved win.
he would be so much better if he committed more to his punches and kicking and overall be more aggressive.
