Bellator 261 fight of the night was Daniel Weichel vs Keoni Diggs. What a FIGHT, Wish the fight was five rounds but it’s all good. Back and forth technical stand up fight.
Daniel Weichel won by Decision (split) (29–28, 28–29, 30–27) but Keoni Diggs won this fight no disrespect to Weichel but Keoni Diggs beat him stastically, Won the third round. The commentators were saying Diggs won as well.
The judges messed up on this one.
Loss on Diggs record but Diggs need to keep his head held up high, I was so impressed with his striking. Continuing to stand up with Weichel. Hearing the popp in Diggs hands, See Weichel backing up.
Diggs 34 years old 9-1 record crazy improvements. Love to see more of Keoni Diggs, Next up for him can be Pedro Carvalho, Saul Rogers or Jeremy Kennedy.
Hawaii has Max Holloway, BJ Penn, Ilima Lei Macfarlane and Keoni Diggs is one of the NEXT GREAT Hawaii born MMA fighters.
You gotta pay your dues and it’s a lot of ups and downs and of course it just makes when you get to where you’re at and you’re still climbing, I’m still climbing and we’re just trying to get to where we’re at and you never know where we’re gonna end up but we just keep pushing forward, pushing forward and it definitely makes it a lot sweeter. You stop a little and think back on things like, wow.https://www.khon2.com/sports/hawaiis-keoni-diggs-embraces-the-journey-that-has-led-him-to-bellator-261-showdown-against-featherweight-contender-daniel-weichel/
Keoni Diggs looked confident, In right mindset just sucks the judges got it wrong. Hope Scott Coker gives Diggs a solid fight, He impressed me a lot. Looking forward to Keoni’s next fight in 2021.
