Perennial rock-em sock-em robot and judge-whisperer Leonard Garcia hadn’t won a fight without a little help on the scorecards in 12 fights – since he knocked Jens Pulver out in 2008. But his streak of losses and shoulda been losses ended this past weekend as he knocked out Rey Trujillo in the third round with a nice head kick followed up by the kind of crazy swings you’d expect from someone holding a baseball bat or golf club.
So congrats to Garcia for landing a finish and doing it all without changing or improving his ridiculous style. Let your inaccurate swing for the fences flag fly, sir!
