    Against Vinnie Barbarino.

    That is a division 1 wrestler pace.

    Barbarena's toughness made it boring. 98% of fighters would break within two rounds.

    Covington is an absolute animal. Legit contender.

    na I think it had more to do with the constant body locks and holding against the cage that made it boring

    It's a fight, it's legal to stop him from doing it by FIGHTING BACK.

    I'm a fan of all forms of combat, striking and gappling arts. This is an ancient argument, in mma your allowed to wrestle, you are also allowed to sprawl, or catch someone with a knee or uppercut while shooting in.

    I wish I would have known beforehand so I could have not attended Mr. Covington's clinic.

    I wish he went for subs or could have done something with the takedowns. That is all.

    Barbarena wasn't able to stop the takedown. Covington couldn't stop Barbarena from recovering and getting back up. So it just got there. It happens.
