yeah, cuz Fedor's muay thai coach is gonna ignore the fact that elbows are allowed now?
what i'm saying is that elbow re-opened a cut, he didn't get killed by ONE elbow. i'd wager that had he not had the cut, Kohsaka would have probably just been warned or perhaps penalized, and subsequently owned by Fedor. i'd also bet on the fact he'd definitely train to deal with elbows after seeing what happened to Crocop when taken to the ground by Gonzaga.
Not to mention he fought Kosaka again and beat the brakes off his ass.
