“Like a Prime Tony Ferguson”

The relentless blows and dripping blood might scare the most, but not the likes of Tony Ferguson or even Cristian Giovannie. Besides a contest of skills, endurance, and physicality, an MMA fight is also a battle of willpower. What are you supposed to do when the blood is gushing down your face and your opponent unloads strike after strike? While some might embrace fate, Giovannie would rather gallantly absorb the blows.

With the clock ticking, Begosso faked a left jab and soon followed it with a spinning elbow. The blow wobbled Giovannie, and soon a kick and a couple more elbows followed. Meanwhile, blood was sprouting like a fountain from his face.

However, the American fighter didn’t give up and bided his time. On the other hand, Begosso raised his hands in the air as he received the appreciation of the crowd. Definitely, he had bagged the round and the fight with his deadly blow. But it was Giovannie who stole the show as he spat out the blood, walked around the steel cage, and gave his opponent an obscene gesture.


While Begosso swept the judges’ scorecards and won the fight via unanimous decision, Giovannie’s bloody face reminded MMA fans of Tony Ferguson.
