Usually after a KO that humiliating, the bounce back makes a boring fighter.
That would be a shame in MVP's case.
"If I could lose to anybody, I'm glad it was him. He's an amazing martial artist and person." Nice speech.
Great interview, Venom was very self analytical here and aware of the mistake he made. That is a major strength he has - being honest with himself and accepting his defeat and understanding what he did wrong.
This is one of those losses needed in a fighters career to put things into perspective, I can only imagine this will only make Venom more dangerous and a better fighter going forward.
He’s handled this loss like a class act.
Yee they become gun-shy and can never pull the trigger like they used to...
I don’t think MVP knows how to be boring. I think he may work on his defense, but I don’t think he will become gun shy.
i hope to see MVP get flatlined by anyone with a full well rounded game for years to come
He can be very boring if his opponent doesn't wamt to pay his game. His fight with Rickles was painfully boring iirc. Same with Gonzalez.
I didn't think Rickles was boring, I saw it as a display...it certainly wasn't an "engaged" contest.
And agree on Gonzalez.
MVP is an attribute-based fighter. This was going to eventually happen, as it does to anyone flashy. Die by the sword. The next fight will be the second act of MVP's career. I tend to doubt he has "basics". He relies on movement and speed.
