However, the fight was far from pretty, as Stosic landed three hard
groin strikes that resulted in two points being deducted over the
course of the bout. Nzechukwu says he has never been hit harder in
the groin than the third low blow Stosic landed.
“I was starting to get frustrated with him, but I was just focusing
on the fight. On the second groin strike, I started to switch
stances so he wouldn’t be able to hit me there,” Nzechukwu said to
Sherdog,com. “Then, he hit me again, and I was like, ‘Wow.’ That
third one really got me and made me feel nauseous. After the fight
it made me tired. I had never been hit that hard in the groin
In the end, Nzechukwu got the win and would have been victorious
even without the pair of point deductions. The Fortis MMA product
isn’t satisfied with his performance.
“We checked the scorecard and I would have won even without the two
points. I just want to go back to the drawing board and get better.
I’m not trying to be a Debbie Downer, but I know I can be better
and want to be better. I just had to figure stuff out, and I
continue to do that,” he said. “Just be better than myself last
time out. It comes with experience, too.”
