Size matters - if we were asked to describe this fight in three words, we would say that. ()
In evidence, you can look at the duel of the same Alex against Kydyrgali Ongarbaev. In both fights, Alex acted almost the same way; he at the expense of a huge arm and fast enough, explosive start knocked down the center position and went under the table, attacking the opponent’s hand with a stretch and pronation. And after the opponent’s wrist was opened, Alex tried to sideways. But it is precisely in the hand and the length of the fingers that the fundamental difference lies between Rustam and Kydyrgali, and as a result, the result of the match as a whole.
Longer anthropometry of the hand allowed the Kazakh, without losing the hand, to go into a defensive position, from which, having waited until Alex's hand got tired or he made a technical error, he successfully counterattacked. Rustam, however, cannot go into a defensive position to keep the wrist at least straight. Firstly, due to the fact that the length of his fingers did not allow him to fully grab Alex’s palm and block pronation, and secondly, when Alex pulled on a diagonal, the attack vector went almost immediately to Rustam’s wrist. While in the fight against Kydyrgali, Alex began to load the opponent’s wrist only after he had already used most of the length of the pad.
The next factor, which also depends on anthropometry, was precisely Alex's technical error.
