  1. Very good performance from both fighters in an excellent and plenty of action fight. The decision was quite right since Yoann just have a very good 3 round in this fight where he overwhelmed Nieky to the point I was thinking he will win the match. Should he persisted attacking Nieky in the way he did the decision would be most likely in his favor. Unfortunately he wasn’t able to continuing such attack, may be because getting tired and also because Nieky reacted properly overcoming such situation with a very satisfactory end due to the fact it was really a very though bout.
