The more I watch the fight the more I'm impressed with Montiel's toughness. He hit the deck pretty hard from a huge counter, even after he fell over again, he still beat the count and managed to remain on his feet (should have been stopped then). By the time the ref stopped the fight, to Montiels credit he seemed pretty clear headed compared to how he was not even 15 seconds ago when he was twitching on the floor by a punch that gave him a dent in his head! He showed great recovery and toughness in this fight and hope he comes back ok and stays at 118.
