Best heavyweight fight I’ve seen in a minute! Obviously impressed with Dos Santos but also Lewis’s determination, thought he was rope-a-doping when he was actually hurt, nuts!— Angela Hill (@AngieOverkill) March 10, 2019

Millender could’ve done a lot of things differently to stay in that fight.— Aljamain Sterling (@FunkMaster_UFC) March 10, 2019
Not giving up his back when he was basically out from bottom.
Fighting the hands on that palm-to-palm grip.
