Initially, we called the fight with Deivydas Rimkus a test for Dave Chaffee, because in his previous form he was an unambiguous favorite in this pair. ()
Dave did not disappoint us, he easily, even with some margin, won this match. Dave did not start first, but a confident fight as second number (both morally and physically) against a massive opponent with excellent anthropometry, who also pulls toproll, was is an indicator of the power reserve. We also saw that Deivydas passed Dave’s wrist in the third and fourth round, and won in the sixth round. But here, everything was also far from as simple as it might seem at first glance, because all the fights took place without complications and Dave, realizing his superiority, did not even spend time on slips. And we can remind you how the fights between Kydyrgali Ongarbayev and Levan Saginashvili happened: Kydrygrali showed quite worthy resistance pulling without straps, which even inspired some faith in his possible victory, but in straps the picture changed to the completely opposite.
