    With Aleks that is a distinct possibility.

    Aleks with improved wrestling would be a tough fight for most HWs. So hopefully he’ll do just that. Good matchup though, cant wait.

    Pesta is 1-4 in the UFC, Aleks will probably TKO him in the 1st round.

    Pesta is actually pretty decent. Faced some legit competition in the ufc as well. Lewis, Ruslan, Oleinik and Tybura are no joke and all solid fighters. He was also doing pretty damn good in all those fights until he lost, he's a bit chinny but he has decent takedowns and ground game.

    Don't be shocked if he subs Aleks in the first, although he has a tendency to slow down so if he don't get Aleks out of their quick he'll probably get KO'd.

    Was a winnable fight for Pesta imo.
    Fight went in his favour until he got hurt and Aleks took adventage of it.

    Btw. Also a bit shady that the ref told them to get up after Aleks got beaten up on the ground by Pesta (and right after this he "caught" Pesta).

    The stand-up was fine imo. Pesta looked gassed, was way too inactive and did just about enough not to be stood up for most of the time. What surprised me more was how flat footed Aleks looked. He didn’t move around, didnt cut angles, didnt use his jab like he usually does. He just stood in front of Pesta getting hit looking for the KO shot. The right hand that caught him before the TD looked bad. Aleks’ handspeed is still amazing though...

    Aleks might have been ill. When he went to get his hand wrapped he was coughing heavily, same thing when he walked to the cage. He looked very off mentally and tired even before the fight begun.

    The ref was shady at least. He should have not stood them in the 2nd. Pesta was working.

    Aleks looked bad. Zero head movement and got easily outstruck in the first. He is a turtle off his back.

    Still a really solid win. Pesta is a good fighter who had bad luck.

    That stand up was suspect to say the least.

    Aleks stand up is terrible when it comes to defense.

    No head movement, flat feet, no jab.

    Still happy he got the win.

    Big surprise to see Klidson beat Nemkov, even though Viktor was rather easily outstriking him up until them. Some opportunistic BJJ right there.

    I reacted to how red his nose and face was before the fight. Looked like he got hit. Maybe it was a cold like you said.

    Great win but not a good performance imo, had Pesta not gassed he would've won the fight. Aleks did defend most of Pesta takedown attempts at the end though (might have been because Pesta was gassed).

    What a fantastic looking set and presentation. Things are so fun outside the UFC.

    He was messing with his nose all fight. Thank God for that standup.
