Fights of the bottom group of the second stage of the Top-8 will be very expected, although at the first stage its participants did not show the best result. ()
The main intrigue of the second stage we can safely call the fight between Rustam Babayev and Tim Bresnan. This is revenge, and their previous meeting, which, by the way, and determined their starting positions in the Top-8, is a unique case in the history of armfights, when all the defeats took place on fouls. In their last match, Rustam turned out to be more technically prepared and got fewer fouls, due to which he was able to beat Tim, but their physical form was very close. And in fact, we did not get an answer who is stronger, but only found out who was a little better prepared and managed to use the rules to his advantage. It is these factors that fuel interest in the fight better than any advertising. It is interesting to see how the rivals worked on the bugs, because even small fluctuations in technical readiness and control of the elbows on the pads will break the scales in one direction or another, not to mention the fact that someone could add in physical form.
