  34. Clock Icon8:19 pm

    Lackluster beginning to the second round. Marshman still trying to push forward, but a lot of missed strikes for both fighters. It takes until the three minute mark for them to start upping their output, but most strikes miss again. Now they clinch against the cage.

    Marshman is able to land a nice left hook. He's still getting the better of the exchanges when they happen but the second round was a story of errant strikes.

    Bleacher Report scores the round: 10-9 Marshman.

    Khalil Rountree vs. Paul Craig: Round 1

    Craig starts with a low outside leg kick as he circles around Rountree. Rountree looks composed in the center of the cage. Rountree waiting on Craig. Perhaps a bit too much. Rountree just waiting on opportunities to counter, and Craig is not giving him much. Now Rountree opens up a bit more with Craig getting close to the cage.

    A lot of feints from Rountree before he springs into action. There's no doubt he's quick and powerful. Stuffed takedown for Rountree. Craig lands a good body kick. Rountree corks Craig and the fight should be stopped, but the referee allows him to turn him unconscious on the mat. Then Rountree stands over Craig which the crowd boos.

    James Mulheron vs. Justin Willis: Round 3

    Mulheron is coming forward, but he's still out of range. Willis should go in for another takedown. Mulheron is definitely the aggressor as Willis not doing much of anything. They clinch and it's Willis with the outside position. Mulheron reverses the position. Willis should be up on the scorecards, but he has given this round away. We've seen worse judging.

    Willis gets a takedown with a minute left in the fight. Mulheron stands. An awful round to end a lackluster fight.

    Bleacher Report scores the round: 10-9 Mulheron. Bleacher Report scores the fight: 29-28 Willis.

  44. Clock Icon7:26 pm

    James Mulheron vs. Justin Willis: Round 2

    Willis lands an inside leg kick. Mulheron cannot find a way inside the range of Willis. Not a lot of output and a slower pace. This has taken the card down a peg after a stellar start. Spinning back fist misses for Mulheron. He's just trying anything at this point.

    Willis could turn up the tempo, and he opts for a takedown. Willis controls from top and works from half-guard. Willis has an arm trapped. Willis is able to land a few good ground and pound shots, but the horn sounds before he can move toward a finish.

    Bleacher Report scores the round: 10-9 Willis.

  45. Clock Icon7:19 pm

    James Mulheron vs. Justin Willis: Round 1

    Willis takes the center of the cage. They exchange low kicks. A slower start to this fight than the others, but not a surprise with debuting heavyweights. Half the round has passed by with little happening, and yet Mulheron is sporting a small cut under his left eye.

    Willis scores a takedown. Mulheron is back to his feet. Nice exchange in the center, and it's Willis getting the cleaner shots in. Willis seems to be getting loose.

    Bleacher Report scores the round: 10-9 Willis.
