Really? Everyone is discrediting Costa by giving any reason or excuse as to why Boetsch lost? There was a headbutt, and eye poke (accidental), but Costa was picking Tim apart anyway, he seriously impressed me tonight.

Too much crying on this thread. Neither the eye poke or the head poke was intentional. Fighting is dangerous and Shit happens!

Agreed, was pulling for Costa. Just some bad luck for tim and it was def a turning point when he busted his hand. Id like to see a rematch, but dont wanna see Costa sit around till Tim is healed up. Who you guys think is next for Costa? Okami?

It was an unintentional headbut imo. But i think it puts costa in the top 15

Sounds like this Tim guy got beat the fuck up. It's a fight and he's going to the hospital. Rules are nice and all but he got his shit pushed in.
