I guess we can blame the Philly fans for bringing the draw vote to over 30% Colton Orr had the advantage the entire fight, landed the harder shots, landed more shots and knocked Cote down at the beginning. I give Cote, a smaller fighter, credit for going toe to toe with one of the better fighters in the league but credit of courage does not lead to a draw or a victory in this fight.
Very Good fight. I gave Orr the win as he did well early and late with the exciting Cote having a good run in the middle. Spirited, long fight with both men getting good shots in. I just think that Orr landed a few more.
Cote makes the move of the year. One of the best ways to tie a guy up is to get a grip in the wrist area rather than the shoulder area. In the middle of the fight, Cote grabs Orr's sweater sleeve at the wrist (while Orr is throwing a punch) with his left the transfers it to his right hand and the Cote starts throwing lefts. He looses the grip soon after, but I have never seen anybody pull that kind of a move off at high speed.
Cote took some shots, but he punched his way back into the fight. Very impressive fight for both guys. Win for Orr, but Cote showed a lot. Hope they fight again soon.
What a scrap. I had to watch that fight a few more times. Real close bout here. I had to go with a draw. I don't think anyone can say either guy had the clear win. Not only did both guys land shots, but they both landed powerful shots. Neither guy really looked too tired. This one was definitely a draw.
Don't know if that first one from Orr landed or not, Cote might have just lost his balance. Let's suppose it did land, I give even more credit to for popping right back up! GREAT GREAT SCRAP! We need more guys throwin' like these two, not the Brashear bear hug or the Janssen swing to miss (and I'm a Devs fan). Orr has proven to TOUGH, and willing to take on all comers. Cote's willing too, but I don't think he's in the top class of fighters. Lots of heart, though. And for those of you proclaiming Orr to be a TOP TOP heavyweight, check out some of his old fights, getting rag dolled by BGL and a draw with Mike Rupp, who's not that great a fighter. I called it a draw. Great show.
