In the 2nd round- “a 1-2 combo from Jebb and Hill shoots to slow the pace.” That “1-2” combo was the biggest shot landed of the fight but you dumb it down like Hill had it under control and was countering that??? Seriously dude. You make it sound like his spinning back kicks actually landed and stuff. Come on… Re watch the fight

  39. mmafan says:

    Jebb what shot did Hill open that nasty gash with? Only replay they showed was your big 1-2 combo, even after Hill won, they say lets look at some replays then they show that? I think it was a pretty tough fight to score, but Hill was way more active with his combos and throwing a variety of strikes, also I think Jebb could have won that fight if he used his wrestling through out not just at the end of the round, but got to watch that fight again. Also thought the comentary was in favor Jebb.

  42. Will says:

    Gota agree with Jebb, Cody Remples commentating and write up was brutal, and Dean isn’t any better.
    Just cause Hill is throwing sloppy combos and not landing that doesn’t make him winning the fight, they need to get some guys in that know the sport.
