@Petetorious’ “MMA PRECAP”: Cagesport 45 – Julian Erosa Vs. Justin Harrington 2

@Petetorious’ “MMA PRECAP”: Cagesport 45 – Julian Erosa Vs. Justin Harrington 2 “MMA PRECAP”: Cagesport 45 – Julian Erosa Vs. Justin Harrington 2 Many have considered this fight said and done when fight fans see Erosa and Harrington’s last scrap went only to the first round.

If you look at the fact that Erosa won in the first round, you wouldn’t understand why this would be a good rematch, and honestly i get it. But seeing it live from start to finish, it was amazing. It was a fight i could see over and over. I wouldn’t flinch an MMA fandom muscle if they fought 10 more...
