“In the second round, I was hit with a knee that dislocated two of my ribs,” Sakai said to AG Fight. “When he took me down, he hit me with an elbow that broke two a lot more. So I was without the need of 4 ribs, so to speak. That acquired in the way a ton. I could not protect takedowns. I could not exhibit my jiu-jitsu. I could not protect myself really perfectly. Kudos to him.
“I’m certain he utilised his practical experience in his favor, but I was anticipating that. What manufactured matters tricky for me, and I’m not attempting to arrive up with an justification below, was the discomfort in my ribs. Even then, I attempted to endure it as a great deal as I could.”
It is definitely a disappointing loss for Augusto Sakai who was getting a move up in competitors. If Sakai had won, he would’ve been a best-five heavyweight. Now, he will have to establish himself back again up at the time his ribs recover up.
