Bunch of disrespectful fucks on this thread, discrediting MM who fought his ass off. First round was close, creepy had the tds but MM outstruck him. Second round MM, third creepy. Win for creepy, mouse, or draw would all have been viable in this situation and anyone with the brains to analyze the fight technically can see this.Great job to both fighters and can't wait to see more 125 lb fights!

I had R1 and R2 for MM and R3 could have been a 10-8 for McCall. Draw.
