Dude. There isn’t any manner this tempo can proceed. That was loopy. Two guys of their late 30s. One of them in his first struggle in six years. Just standing toe to toe and buying and selling for 5 minutes straight. Unreal tempo for the primary of 5 rounds.

Diaz was returning to the Octagon after a virtually seven-year layoff and lots of followers had questioned how ring rust may play an element in his efficiency. Lawler, then again, was using a four-fight shedding streak and had hoped to get again within the win column for the primary time since 2017.
