    From Yana Kunitskaya, Marreta's GF, instagram.
    The translation from Russian is not what she wrote in English. It's "recharged and ready to war".

    Everyone knows that it's a bad idea to "recharge" before the fight.
    That's why it was so hard for him to grapple, he "grappled" a day before that

    Marreta will be giving Yana the hammer even after losing. Respect

    It seems like guys that look good against, or just about beat Jones think they have it made. As if they just assume they’ll wipe everyone else out. You’d think that getting that close to winning the title would only make you hungrier, and more dedicated. Not turn you into someone that thinks they can just mail it in.

    He lost because he threw his IQ out with the Shot he dropped Glover with. He was solely focused on doing as MUCH damage as possible that he wasn't even paying attention or moving with Glover on the bottom that eventually he got reversed.

    Honestly I expected more out of Santos. Glover did his job well so props.

    Thought he should have gotten up sooner also - Glover just gamed him...

    Too busy trying to close the show because he felt he was losing which is understandable, but yeah he should have stood up. His shot selection on the ground was sloppy too, that all he did was Gas himself out which made him tapping easier. He almost offered no resistance because he blew his fucking Wad throwing Rapid punches instead of standing up or picking his shots and landing elbows.

    Santos had a complete knee reconstruction and is almost 37 years old. I thought he looked good all things considered. If Glover got him down things were going to get dicey fast and thats exactly what happened. I'm sure he's plenty dedicated and hungry, but theres only so much you can do with fucked up knees, especially given his style of fighting.

    And this is exactly why I think Santos didn't "grapple" his GF before the fight: he was adrenalined-up and too aggressive. He had no fight IQ and just dove into Texiera on the ground.
    IF Santos would have busted a nut in that Russian booty the night before, he would have been cool, calm, and collected, and just motioned for Glover to get off his ass so he could put him down again.

    I don't approve of that kind of relationship.

    People never seem to realise round here how much of an effect a serious knee injury like that has on an athlete. Basically they're never the same again.

    Glover somehow survived those bombs at the beginning of the first, that's how Santos lost
