    Good effort from Borg. He probably only won the First encounter as it was in Sweden. One thing that AmAZES ME is that Borg only won 3.000.000 his whole career. It's sad how much they get these days :D

    3 milllion in the 70's is like ridiculous amount of money
    considering cars were only like a couple thousand dollars and gas was like 25cents-50cents
    like back then houses didnt cost hundreds of thosands of dollars or even millions
    so 3 million bucks back then is like maybe 300,000,000

    whoa. Connors and Borg only weight 155 and 160 lbs. I need to go on a diet.

    Neither Connors or Borg were particularly big guys. They just overwhelmed opponents with their extreme mental focus. 5'10" is a tough height these days to succeed with.
