    Can't believe everyone is missing the return of the Rod.

    Man, Salka opens up so much when the throws.

    10-9 Salka. Vargas clearly the more dangerous guy in there though. He'll get to Salka at some point.

    20-18 Salka.Just outworking Vargas early on. Lots of body shots. Starting to get hit a bit more.

    Vargas doesn't look so good here.

    29-28 Salka. another close round, gave it to Vargas for a few good shots late but Salka is outworking him for the most part.

    Salka has some skills, he just shouldn't be at this level.

    Fight is over. Salka's corner stopped it.

    Salka did OK for a few rounds. He just doesn't have the firepower to beat a top level fighter. Reminds me a lot of Joey Gamache.

    He made a decent showing of himself but definitely too high a level.
