TequilaYuen -Steve4192 - Another product of the UFC hype machine.
A freaky athlete who looks the part and has some flashy offensive skills, but lacks the boring basic fundamentals that separate guys with great potential from guys who are actually great. There have been dozens of guys like him over the years, and they almost always fail to reach their much ballyhooed 'potential'.
Harsh judgement, but I agree.
You could see Sage trying to do a karate style thing with his stance and his hands down. Meanwhile Cosmo was cutting off the ring and putting Sage in the corner with basic footwork. Then Sage misjudged the distance and didn't seem to realize Cosmo was in punching range.
I suspect Sage needs better boxing fundamentals, and also needs to be taught the differences between fighting in a cage and fighting in a ring.
I just made the exact comment on YouTube about the possibility of the Ring being an issue. I'm not convinced it was but glad I'm not the only one!
