The best way to describe this fight is that Brookbank is either real stupid or has a death wish. Why would a shrimp like him even go there, Scott has 6 inches and 45 pounds on him? I got news for you Sheldon, there are only 3 or 4 guys that should even attempt to take on Scott and you are not one of them.
Brookbank goes to the only sane strategy. Hold on for dear life and hope against hope that you don't get pummeled into unconsiousness before Scott tires and then maybe chuck a couple and hope he doesn't get a second wind. Scott apparantly realized this and didn't go for the kill but the zebras saw enough one-way action to jump in and Brookbank didn't seem too worried about their intervention.
