I expected Tim Boetsch (sp?) to run through Costa in this fight. Mainly because he is a big MW (used to fight at LHW) and he has fought and defeated the tougher competition in Lombard, Okami etc. But Costa managed to get the victory via TKO. However, I couldn't help feel that he was kind of lucky to get this win. Here are my reasons: 1. Broken Hand: Tim broke his right hand in the first round. Joe Rogan was commenting on this and it was clear he was hesitant in throwing his right hand in round 2 and 3. 2. The Clash of Heads: At some point during the fight (round 1 or 2) both fighters clashed heads with each other and Tim came off the worst. The clash opened up a cut and the blood was flowing into his eyes making it very difficult for him to see. 3. The Eye Poke: This annoys me, you're watching a good fight between two contenders and one of the fighters paws their hands out and pokes the other fighter right in the eye. Koscheck/Shields do it a lot, pawing your hand out with your fingers open ... should get points removed instantly for that shit. But yeah, Tim Boetsch didn't really spend enough time recovering from that eye poke ... and was keen to get the fight started again despite not being able to see. So, yeah Costa won the fight, but these factors make me think that this fight should have an asterisk next to it and given a rematch, I reckon Tim would handle Costa pretty comfortably.
