Pedro started the fight strong with his spectacular striking and put Shogun on wobbly legs as he struggled to stay in the fight. Facing adversity early in the first round, Shogun somehow managed to stick around proving he has still got the skills to compete in this division. Pedro was unable to put away the veteran in the flurry which gave him enough time to recover and regain his momentum. Shogun displayed his elite ground game in the second round and gave Pedro no chance to retaliate. In the final round, Shogun continued his fighting spirit and pushed Pedro on his back foot. Pedro looked like he hurt his leg, which caused him to give away the strong position to Shogun. Pedro has now lost two in a row while Shogun gets back to the win column.
