-Maximo Blanco vs. Andy Ogle
Round 1: The referee says “Go!” and Blanco sprints across the cage, leaps into the air, and plants a kick square in Ogle’s face. Ogle drops, and for the next minute or so, the Brit is struggling to stay alive while the Venezuelan tries to punch him into oblivion. Blanco isn’t successful, and Ogle slows his opponent down by mixing takedowns with boxing. The round ends with Ogle and Blanco duking it out.
Round 2: Blanco begins the round with another jumping technique – this one a knee – and after nailing Ogle with another, the Brit goes into wrestling mode and the two engage in a long, methodical battle for superiority on the ground. At about two and a half minutes in, Ogle secures back-control, and Blanco is stuck there until the last 30 seconds, when he manages to squirm around into Ogle’s guard.
Round 3: The final frame is spent entirely on the feet, and in terms of punches landed and damage done, Blanco does an effective job of making Ogle ugly. Ogle does score a bit – a kick here, a punching sequence there – but at the end of the day, it’s all Blanco.
Result: Maximo Blanco def. Andy Ogle via Unanimous Decision
