Hari vs Zimmerman was an amazing fight. Definitely the best of this years GP. Too bad the finals ended the way they did.

Melvin kind of surprised me, I though Paul would beat him. But he got careless with his defense and Melvin always has that KO power.

Sefo looked good, he gassed in the third but had a good showing. Choi was way too slow to catch him. glad to see him break out of that 6 fight loosing streak.

Karev lost, but he looked good. He keeps improving everytime he goes out there.

Saki also had a good showing, he was definitely beating Remy before he got caught in the second.

I was extremely impressed with Hari in his first 2 fights. Against Remy he had a slow start, and the knock down was good by Remy. In the second Hari picked up the pace with a nice flurry were he landed the more significant strikes, and than the incident happened. that fight left a bitter taste after a great night of fights.

Hopefully they will have a rematch soon, with the HW title of the line. Definitely looking forward to it, and there will definitely be some bad blood there. Especially with Hari going over and talking shit to Remy's trainers.

they were definitely mocking him. looking at the fight again, the stomp and the punch on the ground didnt seem at all powerful. I think it was more the flurry from Hari leading up to the incident. Regardless, Hari should have been DQ'd for his actions alone, the damage he did was irrelevant.

either Teixeira really improved his striking, or zimmerman went easy on him, because zimmerman looked like a totally different animal during the hari fight.

that was FOTN (hari vs zimmerman)
