  1. Very good use of those knees by Ilunga. He really came in prepared for this fight and shut down a lot of Vakhitov’s offense with that move.

  2. WOW!!!! I cannot believe the result. Artem should thanks very much to all the corrupted judges involved in this fight since he did almost nothing to deserve the victory. Ilunga’s top performance, as usual, was totally ignored due to a blatantly biased judgement. This is a total shame!!!
    In favor of Artem I can say he was only good to absorb all the accurate punches and kicks thrown by Ilunga with no physical consequences, and they indeed were many and quite strong.
    DISGUSTING!!!

    1. I didn’t even wait till the decisions because the fight was so one-sided. Glory is so corrupt. Never watching any of their fights.
