Being the heavy favorite coming into the bout surely boosted Noke’s confidence and his well-rounded fight game backed it all up. From the sound of the bell, it was clear that Camozzi was looking for a stand-up war, but Noke had other plans. The Australian awaited he chance to get the fight to the ground and when he did, his skills truly shined.
