Jeon Uh-Jin vs Ahn Sang-Il
Ahn rocks out to a very sexy song with a little dance reminiscent of Bae MyoungHo. Round one and we see two heavy-handed strikers looking to stand and bang. Both trade shots and Jeon is the first to get the worst of it. Eventually he has Ahn looking a bit tentative of getting hit again. A head butt by Jeon in the clinch! They don’t do anything about it but restart. Aside from one take down by Jeon, this round is all on the feet.
Round 2. Ahn is going on the offense now. More heavy shots. Jeon shoots and gets it down, and Ahn looks for a kimura from the bottom.
Round 3. Ahn throws his jab out with nothing behind it. Jeon starts to think he’s got an opening down the shoot and goes in. Ahn smartly takes advantage and clinches, lands tons of knees to the head until the ref calls it a standing KO.
