In their preparation for Semelsberger, they noticed that spinning attacks could be effective, and they believed it was an opportunity they could capitalize on. Sure enough, it was a third-round spinning backfist landed by Medić that would lead to his knockout win. It was spectacular and a testament to the type of fighter that Medić is.
“It was a pretty good fight. Semelsberger is a tough opponent; he’s pretty much dropped everybody that he’s fought including me. I did not see that coming,” Medić said. “But I knew he was going to be tough, and I banked on getting a finish later in the fight – that did happen. I had a good gameplan and I executed it.
“It was crazy. I got it exactly how I envisioned it.”
At 9-1, Medić has never had a fight go to a decision. He’s finished every one of his wins and was finished in his lone defeat.
