Galore Bofando
Can't find range in loss to Chad Laprise
WelterweightUFC
December 16, 2017
Bofando lost to Chad Laprise via TKO (punches) at 4:10 of Round 1 at UFC on FOX 26 on Saturday in Winnipeg.
ANALYSIS
It was a dreadful effort from Bofando on the heels of his impressive knockout win over Charlie Ward in July. Bofando scored an early knockout but he was unable to do anything with afterwards and Laprise slowly worked his way back into the fight. Bofando moves pretty well and throws a bunch of awkward strikes but this was a significant step backwards. At age 35, there's little hope for Bofando moving forward.
