Imagine you wake up from a devistating spinning backfist knockout. You’re already pretty confused as it is, and now you’re finding out that you lost your fight by…unanimous decision? That’s how it feels to be Daniel Acacio, who met Pete Spratt at Amazon Forest Combat 2 last night.
Before anyone else points it out, you’re right: this technically isn’t a knockout. Spratt, who is no stranger to winning Knockout of the Day honors, landed the spinning backfist that caught Acacio right on the chin as the horn sounded for the end of the fight. So technically, this isn’t a knockout, and the fight went to the judges’ scorecards, who all saw the fight in Spratt’s favor. So yes, this is technically “Unanimous Decision of the Day”- because I’m sure it matters to Acacio’s remaining brain cells and all.
By the way, if you’re looking for a more productive way to spend April Fools Day than threatening to delete your blog, check out the rest of the card. Amazon Forest Combat 2 also saw a rematch between Matt Horwich and Thales Leites, Patrick Cote knock out Gustavo Machado and Murilo Bustamante edge out Dave Menne. Enjoy.
