All through this complete bout, JC appeared gentle and gassed. Now on this on-going unofficial rivalry, the MMA facet can scratch off one other victory over the candy science. No matter Junior was meant to excel at on this lifetime clearly just isn’t boxing. Let’s simply hope that he finds his true expertise in order that he can cease defiling the beloved sport.
