Nick was clearly getting beaten from pillar to post, Robbie would just not stop coming forward and was landing the more damaging blows. When Nick quit in the start of the 3rd. He realized he was gonna have to get beaten up for possibly 14 more minutes. He probably thought 5 rounds would favor him? Kind of a dumb move after being off for 5 year. I think if it was a 3 rounder, Nick would have finished the fight. Lost. Then say "well if it was 5 rounds I would have won" and his die hards would have believed him. Lol. But I'm glad Nick said no excuses. That was actually classy and showed some humility. Nick was always salty about losing a decision or something like that. This Nick didn't make up any excuse for quitting.
