Vinc Pichel vs. John Cofer
Pichel said that if they stood up, he’d own him. Well, not quite. It’s clear that Pichel hits harder but Cofer was doing a better job of being in and out and hitting him with shots. Pichel started to get him really late in the round, but Cofer may have taken that first round.
The second was Pichel’s round all the way. He dominated the standup and ended up on top of Cofer at the end of the round, mostly in the north-south position. This thing is probably going to a third round.
Pichel came out on fire in the third. He was caught in a guillotine, got out of it and finished Cofer with an arm triangle.
Winner: Vinc Pichel by way of 3rd round submission
