Maybe you're right, Chrzan_ko, what do you think of the occasional openings in his guard?

I agree with Chrzan_ko. Great fight.... and Drago should have won, or at least an extra round.

It's very sympathetic of the jury to give the win to Yuya, and make the audience happy. But I have not seen one round in which Yaya scored more than Drago. The only thing you could say in Yuya's favour, is that he was moving forward all the time.
This confirms the old complaint, that if you want to beat a Japanese opponent in Japan, it has to be by KO.

But I loved this battle between two great warriors.

Yes, I actually expected a draw, but the stamina of Yamamoto! I would have never guessed that he would try to outbox Drago! Bit controversial there, Drago certainly scored more heavy fists, but Yamamoto was constantly working and doing his fair share of hits.

Clear victory for Drago. Yamamoto was swinging more, but Drago was hitting more. Most of the Yamamoto's punches stayed on guard, plus Drago used his hands and legs more equally and his punches carried more power
I don't understand why there allways has to be some controversy in the judging

The best K-1 community online!

The focus is on building a community that offers more to the users than any other K-1 website. The focus is also on that the community should be totally user driven, with the users as main writers of content. Who would for example write a better fight report than a fan who actually was at the fight? Or who could write a more interesting fighter profile than the fan who loves and really knows about a fighter? We believe that this approach will lead to that fansofk1.com has the most interesting K-1 information.
