    That referi made the slowest count to 10 I’ve ever seen. He also ruled a slip a clear knockdown against Yi Long. Also warned Sittichai for some normal clinching.
    Chinese netizens comments on Weibo (chinese twitter) were hilarious yesterday. Looks like WLF was hyping the shit out of this fight for 8 months.
    Now we need a Superbon rematch.
