But the story of Saturday, of course, was Marlin the former WF one thirty five pound champion avenging his loss in two thousand seventeen against one fell sunset out finishing him. Just the second man to finish the first being your I favor almost a decade ago and really cemented. His place atop the bantamweight rankings, and my opinion, he should.
