    Taunting apparently worked though. Tenshin got drawn into a brawl that exhausted his energy and greatly damaged his body.
    Now that I think about it Rodtang is now signed to ONE contract, which means we probably will not see a rematch in Rizin. A pity Rodtang lost, his career would have benefited so much from the win.

    I had Rodtang winning 3-5 and the extension round. Close fight though, and very entertaining. Havent seen any K-1 yet.

    Didn't see round 1, but I gave 2-5 to Rodthung + the extension that shouldn't have been. Takeru looked defeated and spent at some point -- I think it was round 4, when he received 5 or 6 straight kicks with no answer at all. Rodthung worked him over good with body punches as well.

    Takeru wins via crowd roar.

    I think the occasional firefights helped Tenshin. They were about even as far as I could tell, but the crowd was most in the fight during those instances and it's easy to perceive Tenshin winning in those moments. I didn't think it was particularly close when Rodthung walked him down with kicks and body punches.

    Why an extension round for 5 round fights?

    Even if subconscious, it forces the judges into a corner to try and find a winnner rather than going to another extension round (the enxtension was the closest to a 10-10 round in the fight). I don't care for it -- 3 or 5 rounds; it's a psychological fuck for judges and fighters. I mean, do you think Rodthung was even aware of the possibility of a 6th round?

    Fight before that was also 6 rounds. I'm sure the contract he signed, had all the rules listed.

    Just watched the whole K-1 event.
    Good stuff
    1. Amazing fights across the card
    2. Gonnapar is awesome as always. Rukiya needs to improve defense or go up a weight class.
    If he gets a title shot, I am taking him over Koya Urabe. Just don't match him with Wei Rui lol.
    3. Crazy tournament with unpredictable result

    Bad stuff
    1. Terrible judge scorecards spread across the event. It is not obvious, because it is hidden in split/majority decision.
    2. Kido vs Glunder is one of the worst reffed fights I have ever seen. Referee is clearly biased toward Kido, disqualifying Glunder for holding? The reason he is holding in the first place is because you refuse to deduct a point from Kido for clinching and kneeing. If the role is reversed, the ref would allow Kido to hold on all day.
    I love how the commentators straight up ignored Kido's illegal techniques in the replay (knee in the clinch) and kept on praising him for clearly winning the third round.
    The double standard is my biggest complaint about K-1. The judges and referees always favor Japanese fighters >>> foreign fighters affiliated with K-1 (Kaew/Gonnapar/Minoru) >>>> foreign fighters.

    Who do you consider the best nak muay at 126? Iv fallen behind on that division a lot. It seems like a lot of its stars from last year are either retired or moved up to 130+

    re: rodtang vs. nasukawa

    rounds 1, 2 - tenshin
    rounds 3, 5 - rodtang
    round 4 could've gone either way but i felt like rodtang maintained his pace/pressure...and the body language of tenshin in his corner showed that he was being worn down.

    extra round i gave to rodtang

    Rd 1: Rodtung leg kicks and big body kick at end of round. Tenshin landed a jumping knee, some jabs and a sweep.
    10-10 Draw
    Rd 2: Rodtung moving forward but Tenshin landing more especially in the first half of the round.
    10-9 Tenshin
    Rd 3: Rodtung aggressive and showcasing his iron chin although that doesn't score well. Tenshin firing off crosses after mid kick blocks.
    10-9 Tenshin
    Rd 4: Rodtung lands some vicious body kicks, Tenshin not responding as well but had some good moments.
    9-10 Rodtung
    Rd 5: Rodtung brings the carnage. Tenshin manages to not get rocked but clear round here.
    9-10 Rodtung

    DRAW <— I'm good with the extension

    Rd Ex: Similar to round 5 but Tenshin looking more fatigued. He turns it on in the last minute but not enough to make up for Rodtung's work.

    Winner Rodtung <— They got it wrong

    RISE asked ONE FC if they can bring back Rodtung for their November show, and Chatri gave his go. Not sure if Tenshin is on board, because of his RIZIN plans. Tenshin also said he wants a rematch.

    Tenshin's body language after the decision showed to me that even he thought he should have lost.

    This was at least a very competitive fight so not the worst robbery we've seen but still not the right decision.

    K-1 has uploaded all their fights.

    And it is getting properly trashed for horrifically reffed Kido VS Glunder fight.
    Judge it by yourself.


    After that treat yourself to the most well-matched fight on paper Gonnapar VS Rukiya

    After watching it in full I can see why some may think Tenshin won whether I agree with it or not. He was out pointing Rodtung at certain points of the fight but Rodtung did more damage. Very close fight and I was happy with the extra round. Hopefully we get a rematch soon.

    Does Tenshin lack power or is Rodtung chin that good.
