    Late thread. Sterling holds on with a split decision win. A lot of rounds open to interpretation, I had it 3-2 Cejudo but you couldn't really argue with it going the other way.

    Fight in New Jersey, and Sterling, the home town boy(New York), got booed by the crowd who were shouting for Cejudo.

    Belal Muhammad was impressive although Burns had no left hand, he never used it. Even if he had I don't think he'd have won.

    Yeah you can't argue if it went either way with the decision for me, I think both fighters knew it was very close. Aljo so much bigger than Henry.

    Think that's the end for Cejudo as I can't see him hanging around. Maybe if O'Malley beats Aljo he might get another shot?

    Belal Again looked much bigger than Burns, very easy win for him but I wonder what was the problem with Burns as surely if his left hand was that bad beforehand he'd pull out?

    I don't know what we did to deserve Muhammed and Sterling, in five round fights, on the same card

    Not sure if that fight came to soon for burns or whether belal has just improved that much, think Belal has improved and when he's

    forced to stand he's quite good in fairness to him.

    I was surprised a judge gave it to henry

    Now with o malley being up next I wish it were possible for both to lose

    Aljo reminds me very much of Woodley, neither will ever be fan favourites
