A fight that went to the decision. It became a split decision victory for Dan Hard. Dan Hardy seemed to strike the most of the two, but the majority of them Akihiro avoided perfectly using his boxing skills. If you study the fight closely, it seems that A. Gono landed the majority of the shots. In addition Akihiro got some really nice punches in, got three or four takedowns and even got the back of Dan Hardy. It should be said in Dan Hardy's defense that he got away from those takedowns very nicely, but still, he got taken down and ended in unfavorable positions. Is it just me or should this fight have gone to Akihiro?
