Denniston Sutherland vs. Leeroy Barnes (3×5 rounds)

Round 1:

Both men come out throwing hard single shots early, with limited success.  Barnes lands a combination and an awkward jump knee before pushing Sutherland to the cage and working for a takedown.  Sutherland muscles in a guillotine and turns him against the cage, but loses the submission and the position.  Both men trade hard shots against the fence and Sutherland goes for the guillotine again while landing knees to the body.  The hold is lost and Barnes circles out, throwing more wild hooks and a jumping knee.  Barnes pressuring against the fence and hits a high crotch takedown into side control with two minutes left.  Sutherland stalls the fight and muscles out of side control and to his feet, landing knees to the head and body.  Barnes eats the shots and rolls for a sloppy kneebar, but misses and winds up with Sutherland in his half guard.  Sutherland working short elbows and an Americana, but Barnes sweaty arm slips out of his hand.  Barnes muscles back to his feet with a lumbering turn and Sutherland pushes him to the fence before locking on another guillotine, then rolling to his back, but it’s nowhere near sunk.  Barnes ends on top, but close round to Sutherland 10-9

Round 2:

Barnes opens with a mid kick and catches a punch from Sutherland, who then goes for a high crotch takedown, but settles for a trip.  Barnes working a kimura from bottom side control before Sutherland pulls his arm out and goes for one of his own.  This is a total slop fest of grappling as Barnes simply stands up from bottom side control and slams Sutherland directly into mount.  Barnes forces Sutherland to turn to his side briefly, but he thinks better of it and stays in mount with Barnes throwing sporadic elbows and punches from top.  Sutherland turns to his side and establishes half guard, where Barnes grabs an arm in guillotine, but gives up position for a loose submission attempt.  Sutherland is working from top half guard now and throwing vicious elbows, forcing Barnes to turtle and allowing his opponent into quarter position.  Barnes stands up and goes for another weak rolling kneebar, but Sutherland doesn’t move, instead dropping down and punching the clearly winded Barnes.  Barnes regains his guard, but he’s being battered and ends the round with Sutherland elbowing him from quarter position. Sutherland 10-9

Round 3:

Barnes is battered but still in the fight, throwing jabs and hanging back.  Sutherland is leaping forward with looping punches and grabs for another high crotch takedown, but is stuffed.  Sutherland grabs another loose guillotine and lets it go as Barnes inexplicably gives up his back, and then sits down on the mat for a bizarre takedown.  Sutherland begins raining body knees to the very gassed Barnes and allowed him off the hook so he can work more knees from the clinch.  Barnes surges back with wild punches, and actually throws himself to the mat by overextending, where Sutherland moves to quarter and works punches and elbows.  Barnes stands and starts trading, but breaks off the attack to hit a double leg.  Sutherland stands up out of it and Barnes goes for a fireman’s carry but collapses in mid-attempt as Sutherland continues to elbow to the body, finishing the round on top for a clear win. Sutherland 10-9

The judges score this fight 30-27×3 for Denniston Sutherland

Jack Marshman vs. Andrew Punshon (3×5 rounds)

Round 1:

Jack Marshman misses weight for his title defense, so this fight is contested as a standard 3×5 bout, but Punshon will win the title if victorious.  Punshon comes out with a flying knee, lands a low kick and shoots a double to put the champion on his back.  Marshman looking to break down Punshon’s posture as he grabs at the head, but Punshon stands raining down menacing hammerfists.  Marshman goes for an armbar, but Punshon slips it and moves into side control.  Marshman showing slick hips and he regains guard and catches Punshon in a triangle, but can’t finish as Punshon rolls to his side to escape and leaps for a toe hold.  Punshon quickly realizes he can’t finish and moves back into guard as to not lose position, but winds up in another triangle.  Marshman knows he has it and starts driving elbows into Punshon’s head for good measure, forcing the challenger to tap in the first round.

Jack Marshman wins via 1st round submission (triangles and elbows)
