The scientific method is used all the time.
It consists of posing a question, developing a hypothesis, testing it, analyzing the results and drawing a conclusion. Second round and they exchange some kicks with neither man really gaining an advantage.
Striking exchange continues with Shalorus really swinging for the fences. Crowd begin to boo with about three minutes remaining. Head kick glances for Palaszewski.
Really even round thus far. Leg kicks land for both men before Shalorus decides to switch it up and hits an easy single leg to guard. Crowd boo wildly as Bart ties him up to prevent any ground-and-pound, but a few shots to the body get through.
Bart uses the fence to get to his feet, but eats a combo on the way up.
They break and Bart pushes forward, but slips on something and goes down before getting up to throw a head kick to end the round. Third and final round and Bart pushes forward, but gets tagged by a flurry of punches to slow him down a little.
Winging punches from Shalorus land glancingly. Takedown attempt follows and Palaszewski gets dumped onto his back, but this time he reverses to his feet and lands a solid knee.
Two minutes to go.
Kamal works into half-guard and lands with some clubbing punches. Solid elbows from the bottom from Bart.
Scramble from Bart and he gives his back in the process, but manages to slip free to his feet. Weak shot is blocked by Bart and he answers with a combo ending with a good high kick.
Fight ends there. Judges have it a split decision somehow, but thankfully it goes 30-27 Shalorus, 29-28 Palaszewski, and 29-28 for Kamal Shalorus.
At least the right man won. Pretty shoddy fight overall though as Bart never really looked comfortable in opening up until very near the end of the third round, and Shalorus seemed more content to wing crap haymakers rather than use his sick wrestling to his advantage.
Go Diego go! I mean seriously, the guy is TINY at 155 lbs and is clearly carrying excess bodyfat. Why give up size to guys who walk around at about 170 lbs or so when you can drop and fight guys who are your own size?
On paper to me at least this was a gimme for Cerrone to walk into the UFC with some momentum and into some really intriguing fights.
Can it get any better? Fight begins and both men come out throwing strikes, with Cerrone looking really aggressive. Knee to the gut from Cerrone and they clinch briefly before breaking off.
