AMAZING fight... one of the best I've seen in a long, long time.

I have always been impressed with Torres but Mir was showing some serious man love to him... it was almost awkward listening to him

I think Mazuwhatshisname was stronger and hit harder but Torres is more of a complete martial artist.

Wow, Mizugaki did great in my opinion. I was thinking he was winning the fight, and looking at the facial damage he did. It was a great fight though. Took it to 5 rounds and didn't give up. Great fight guys!
