“I know it wasn’t the best performance, but I did that same thing with Yaroslav and made him the most exhausted he’s ever been,” said Storley. “That’s kind of my style, is grinding and adding more implements to it, to be more explosive and get damage. But he knows how deep I took him into those waters, and had him in trouble, and [Douglas] Lima didn’t do that to him.”https://cagesidepress.com/2021/08/22/bellator-265-logan-storley-welterweight/
