I think this is a good fight. Arman's size disadvantage is my worry here.

RD 1: 10-10, even.
RD 2: 10-10, even.

20-20, even.

Makhachev had a takedown in RD 2 but Tsarukyan immediately countered with a kimura. He let go and went right back to his feet. Super close round again.

Great fight, Islam should get the nod for finishing strong. Very impressed by Tsarukyan's wrestling

Yeah, I should arbitrarily give the round one of them, despite feeling it was even.

TUF noobs, lol.

Great scrap. 


Great grappling match I assume you meant? Islam is a grinder but his performance tonight doesmt make me think he will be elite anytime soon..he and Khabib wanted Kevin Lee for tonight's op..lol they are lucky this fight didn't happen as Kevin is way too powerful and experienced for Islam at this time

Scrap was maybe a strong word. Most exciting grappling stalemate I’ve seen in a while. Both guys just seemed to be giving maximum effort and the position was constantly changing.

Either one of those guys could theoretically tire out KL. They went hard as hell for three rounds.
