In the episode’s fight of the night, Team Faber’s Mike Chisea utilized his reach advantage and grappling skills to cause all kinds of trouble for Team Cruz’s Jeremy Larsen.
It was not all smooth sailing for Chisea in the first round,as he had to find a way to overcome a point deduction due to an illegal knee.
In a two round fight, the point deduction essentially made the second round a “winner take all” situation. Larsen pushed the fight with his striking but a late takedown and Chisea submission attempt sealed the round in Chisea’s favor.
After the fight, Urijah Faber set next week’s fight as Team Faber’s Joe Proctor will take on this week’s antagonist, Team Cruz’s Chris Tickle.
