Watching Saffiedine/Lim at the moment (I don't think I'm going to go through the rest of the card). Gonna jot down notes then post my thoughts after it's over into one coherent post:
Saffiedine looked MUCH more composed as opposed to Lim, who appears to be trying to throw home run punches every time. Lim was very
flat-footed, while Saffeidine was much more agile. Lim's biggest issue that I've seen, aside from letting his leg get raped, is just getting overly excited and throwing too many wild blows. There were several times in the fight where he got tagged and started flailing and hoping to connect with something. Meanwhile, Saffiedine looked more patient as he picked apart Lim, little by little. He was throwing smart punches, and stronger ones when he saw the opening. Saffeidine's leg kicks were left mostly undefended, aside from the takedown or two Lim got early by catching them (which he proceeded to do nothing with). As we obviously saw, Lim not doing anything about those kicks proved to be fatal, and what did him in. He buckled several times in the 3rd because of the kicks Saffiedine was throwing, and couldn't even move in the 4th. I was disappointed to not see Saffiedine try and finish the fight in the 4th, which he probably could've done fairly easily, after those kicks, the knee to the body, and the flying knee to the face (which was fucking great). He seemed content to wait out the rest of the fight, though. Lim's resurgence in the 4th was nice, but definitely too little too late. :/
So yeah, solid fight. Good performance by Saffiedine, and Lim showed tremendous courage to keep getting up, fighting back, and even taking the 4th (though Saffiedine was literally running away from him
I don't know how much of Saffiedine you guys have seen, but does he just not care to finish fights? He could've finished this one multiple times, but didn't. I'm looking at his fight history right now, and 10 of his last 11 fights have gone come to a decision.
