Hey Guys, I am not a fighter and have never practiced any martial arts. I am not sure how a brutal knock down can affect your performance through out the fight. However, I believe that when Barao got clipped and knocked down on the first round, he was never able to fully recover. I am not saying TJ did not deserve to win. Of course he deserved, he worked hard for that and dominated. But I think Barao was not himself for the remainder of the fight (thanks to TJ). Has anyone with fighting experience experienced something like that? Not able to recover after being tagged brutally?
