Dan Hardy gives his opinion on the C.B. Dollaway vs. Khalid Murtazaliev fight, that took place on the UFC Moscow card.
“I feel like Herb did him a disservice there,” Hardy said (via MMA Fighting). “He could have saved him from at least 10 seconds of punches. He was curled up on his side, then he moved belly down, and for me, that’s too many, when they’re belly down, they’re done.”
“I watched the fight back today and I think it was 26 seconds before the end of the round, I said something about Dollaway, fatigue had taken over and he had not a lot to give,” Hardy said. “He was trying to fight back he’s a warrior, he wouldn’t give up. I always appreciate a guy who will take a beating until the referee stops it, but that’s what the referee is for, is to save the fighters from themselves and from their ego and pride.”
Hardy did go on to give Herb Credit, saying he has had a great career and did a great job in several of his fights.
