But as the round progressed, Waterson began to open up and mixed her striking with her wrestling taking down Casey with ease. With each takedown from Waterson, Casey attempted a submission.

For the very first time in his career, Israel went on the distance fighting full three rounds as Vettori put on a tough performance to give the undefeated fighter his first 3 round experience.

But as the rounds progresses, Vettori realized he couldn’t do much on the stand up and went on to take Adesanya to the ground. His take down attempts were met with intelligent defense but finally Vettori was able to take Adesnya down. Quick to get back on the feet, the middleweight prospect showed everyone his defense game and proved he could even handle the wrestlers.

Alex stuck in there and tried taking him to the ground but Condit was relentless in his defense and attempted a choke in the first round. In the second, Alex kept moving forward until he landed the takedown.

Tables turned when Alex was on the ground and landed a huge up kick right on the chin from there he gets him in a headlock.
