Some fighters know that you can get away with one illegal move…eye poke, nut shot, head butt. But Sheila Gaff showed that you don’t have to wait that long to get in a cheap shot that can turn the fight in your favor.
Sheila Gaff gave Jennifer Maia the nod that she would touch gloves before starting their match at Fight Night 4 in Dubai. But what Sheila ended up doing is cold cocking Maia as she tried to tough gloves which was the beginning of the end for this fight.
Lesson learned, protect yourself at all times. Somewhere out there Floyd Mayweather Jr. is probably clapping.
