Weekend Wrap Up: Losing Is Overrated, The Bull is Back!

Vic Darchinyan proved he’s back and if fact, hasn’t gone anywhere with his impresive 5th round tehnical decision win over Yonnhy Perez this past Saturday night.

Vic was on Perez from the opening bell, hurting Yonnhy early and taking him out of the fight. Vic didn’t give Johnny a chance to establish himself in the fight. Smart move, Viic when back to his old self of being a relentless brawler and while being a bit wild at times, he smothred Perez and his lanky punches.

Vic once again has come back to win a big fight after a disapointing loss. You can call Vic old school because of this, you see, losses don’t destroy this dude, they piss him off and he learns from them to come back even better as he did last Saturday night against a fighter many thought would beat.

Perez was actually the technicaly better fighter coming into this fight, he had the dimensions to pick Vic apart and box him from afar. That’s the take home lesson here, Vic DIDN’T allow that to happen with his raw agreesion, and smothering style. That’s how you handle a fighter who needs room to work. You don’t give it to him and alow he other fighter to use his skill. Great fight plan by team Darchinyan, they knew what they were up against in Perez, and used Vic’s strengths so well, that Perez never got a chance to once have Vic’s weaknesses exposed.

This is why I say losing is overrated, certainly, you don’t fight to lose, but loses can be wins if reflected upon properly, losses also mean that risks are being taken, risks that can make a fighter better in the long run, win or lose.

This has been the case for Vic who has 3 losses. Vic gets an A+ for the way he took matters into his own hands, at 35, he’s a grizzled pro who knows how to win after losing yet agin in a big fight. That’s an old school pro and a future hall of famer.
