The fight quickly commences and Harris gets the early advantage with a takedown. Harris controls the pace in the opening frame, controlling his opponent and using several slams and some ground and pound to take to first round.
In the second round it’s much of the same from Harris but at the midway point Sadollah starts to connect and lands a knee to the head that drops Harris. Sadollah pounces and lands a combination on his downed opponent forcing the referee stoppage. Harris immediately protests the decision, claiming he wasn’t knocked out, but it’s too little too late as the referee’s decision stands.
With Team Forrest in control yet again they select Cale Yarbrough (0-0) to face Team Rampage’s Patrick Schultz (7-1-1), who was eliminated from the competition in the round of 32 but invited back as a replacement for Paul Bradley.
It’s a standup battle in the opening round with Schultz seemingly having the upper hand after connecting with a string of rights to likely take the round on the judge’s scorecards. Yarbrough, though, takes round two with a ground and pound assault and we appear destined for a third and decisive round. The coaches, though, express surprise when they learn that the judges have rendered a decision. After some banter over how they declared a winner with each round seemingly having a clear cut winner on the scorecards, the winner is announced and it’s Cale Yarbrough defeating Patrick Schultz via majoirity decision
The lopsided battle wages on as Team Forrest goes up 6-1 in the competition. Next week it’s Team Rampage’s top pick, CB Dollaway, against Team Forrest’s Nick Klein in the final opening round bout.
