Damn I got that wrong. Rothwell looked like he wasn’t bothered by anything that landed from the Reem

Rothwell didn’t KO Overeem, I can’t believe everything I see on the internet. I must see with my own eyes #UFC

Was Rothwell doing the #AliShuffle and his post fight interview very much sounded like Ali’s interview after beating Foreman?!
