    Well, the writing was on the wall since the beginning of the fight, he landed that over and over again. Good job, I guess.

    The one that dropped Siver barely touched him, but I'd bet he was already dazed from the prolonged beating he took.

    Caught him right on the button, on the tip of his chin.

    Really doesn't look like it, looks like it bounces off Siver's forearm and touches him on the chin but doesn't really land that clean.

    I was surprised Siver didn't have better defense.

    Looked like solar plexus to me, too. Siver didnt react like it was solar plexus, though (folding over, dropping hands to body) so I really don't know.

    Damn, these gifs really show what an obstacle Connors reach was to Siver.

    Siver has never been a particularly good defensive striker.

    He was mixing up the tempo, Dennis was a sitting duck.

    He uses his reach very well. Well done.

    That's what I thought. And that would put him on his butt for sure if he wasn't ready for it.

    Not only does he have fast hands, his accuracy is incredible. The problem he may have with Aldo is his defense. He took a few shots from Siver tonight, and gave up a few takedowns. He can't afford to do that with Aldo. I'm guessing he won't be dropping his hands so much with him.
