damn it Bocek. Ah well, he had his chances but he couldn't seem to go for broke when it mattered. Seemed off the pace cardio wise.

A shame Bocek wasn't on. Because we didn't get the great fight we could have seen. Instead it was one sided. Bocek will kick himself tomorrow. He won't get another shot.

 I was shocked the judges got it right, and even more shocked they got it REALLY right by giving Bendo all three rounds. I was sure they'd give Bocek some or all of those because of getting momentary takedowns.
