I would be more concerned if Gus fought a strong wrestler like DC.
Did you not watch the fight? Manuwa landed several shots on Gus. Notably a strong left hook, and a body shot.
Gus then took him down for the rest of the round
Even in the 2nd round the striking was even until Gus got him in the MT clinch and rocked him a knee, then finished him
