    LOL this org sucks.
    How much they paid that poor guy Baesman to go out against the Russian striker? He wasn’t even supposed to fight, they just thrown him out in a cage without being ready, and now poor kid suffers from neuro damage. Probably threatened him with fine/firing him or something.

    They even had another 170 fight on the card, but they preferred to give someone unprepared to Koreshkov, so he would look better than he actually is.
    These guys are crooks.
