Gloves are touched and we are underway.
Stann stalking, Silva circling. The first attack is launched by Stann, and a flurry ensues. Stann slips, but gets up. Silva gains the clinch and blasts a knee followed by a few uppercuts. Stann responds with a punch that drops Silva to a knees, but the Brazilian stands.
Another exchange follows, and Stann goes to high-five Silva and Silva attacks him. Stann responds and drops Silva, but he once again gets up and works his way out.
Stann continues to engage, but he lands a low-blow. The action is put on hold as Silva is given time to recover. So far it has been a wild fight.
Back to it now, Silva throws a jab that's counter by a right from Stann. Silva answers with a right of his own. A leg-kick from Stann lands. And another. Stann explodes forward and both fights are landing. Stann hurts Silva, but eats some counters and falls. He recovers and drops Silva. In the guard now, he works some ground and pound, but Silva defends well.
What a round.
Score: 10-9 Stann
