VIDEO: Vasyl Lomachenko Wins After Luke Campbell Tries to Pull Late MMA Moves

Vasyl Lomachenko has received massive praise for his technical superiority, but many thought challenger Luke Campbell might be able to pull an Andy Ruiz-style upset in this one. No dice; Lomachenko prevailed in a unanimous decision, though Campbell went a bit dirty late in this one, pulling out some MMA tricks to try to garner any sort of advantage.

Just as Lomachenko was starting to finally put him away in the 12th, Campbell had other ideas, sparring with a strange array of moves.

Instead, Lomachenko, a uniquely gifted fighter, took Campbell (the No. 2 ranked lightweight, according to The Ring) down.

Don't bet against the punishing Lomachenko. This was just the 15th career fight for the former Olympic Gold Medalist, who owns three titles in as many divisions.
